Looking For A New Sponsor

Over the past few months I have had a lot of people ask me if I am showing a horse this upcoming season. As of right now, the answer is unfortunately no. (I do have students showing this season, which I am extremely excited for!). Upon hearing that answer, the usual response is, "Too bad. Matt you need to be showing!"

I do not have the personal financial means to purchase and compete a high quality FEI (or potential FEI) dressage horse. Over the past few years I have been fortunate enough to have owners who generously let me train and show their high quality horses. Without their support, which I am ever so grateful for, I would not have been able to advance my skills (through clinics with world class instructors) and experience (with shows both locally and at CDI's in CA). Having this kind of support is vital to be able to advance in this sport.

With that said, I am looking for a new partner (both equine and business) to work with. The horse can be a talented youngster to bring up the levels or a horse ready to make the jump up to the FEI levels.

I feel that it is important to work towards short term goals and also have "grand" long term goals. I have always set lofty goals and have worked extremely hard to achieve those goals (with achieving a high rate of success).

Currently my personal goals are:
  • Continue to challenge myself each day to be a better rider and trainer
  • Continue my education as a horseman to be a more complete rider and trainer
  • Begin working with one or two horses that I can develop for the Grand Prix
  • Eventual work with a horse with the caliber to compete internationally for the United States
There of course has to be a benefit to you for supporting a rider. This is what you will get by working with me:
  • Be part of an exciting team of an up and coming National Level rider and eventually International Level rider
  • Have your horse treated, cared for and ridden with the utmost care and consideration
  • Training with some of the best instructors (Currently I primarily train with David Wilson, Shannon Peters and Henrik Johansen)
  • A lot of positive exposure for you, or your business, supporting one of the well known riders in the Pacific Northwest
If you are interested, please don't hesitate to contact me (; 720-641-7319) or please feel free to pass this along to any potential partners.

Thanks so much for the support!


Falcon Sold

Congratulation to Cindy of CA on her purchase of Falcon. She came out last weekend and had great rides on Falcon.

It's nice to know Falcon is going to such a great home.

Best to them both!!
