March 14, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Andrew and Alex p

Andrew Wright dressage trainer, bringing together his years of experience training with the best. His philosophy begins with the welfare of the horse, and instruction is designed to improve communication between horse and rider. Whether to improve your basic riding skills, focus on specific aspects of your skill set, or to prepare for competition, Andrew is dedicated to guide you and your horse to the next level.

Andrew`s equestrian career began at age 11 with a family owned pony in his hometown of Dalry in the West of Scotland. Before long he outgrew riding ponies as his skill and ambition quickly moved him up to riding horses by age 12.

At age 16, Andrew graduated high school early and moved to Milton Keynes, England to begin pursuing his professional career with Coldicoyte Sports Horses, a prestigious Belgian sports horse dealer. While with Coldicoyte, Andrew focused on and developed skill working with young horses.

By age 19 Andrew had begun working with Geoff Billington, a former Olympic show jumping rider in Chester, England. While with Geoff, Andrew was a stable jockey and travelled internationally as a groom. During this time he gained experience with top international show jumping horses and attended many prominent competitions around the UK and Europe.

After a season with Geoff Billington, Andrew started a freelance career as a travelling groom and young horse producer under such distinguished riders as Sarah Lynch and Louise Whittaker, both British team members. He travelled extensively throughout Europe and attained invaluable experience in numerous training techniques.

From here, Andrew came to the U.S for the first time to train with the late John Hamilton. Through his training with John, Andrew reached a pivotal point in his career and began a defined focus on dressage and correct young horse production.

With John’s instruction and encouragement, Andrew easily secured a highly coveted position as a working student in Copenhagen, Denmark with Neils Hein Ruus, the former dressage team trainer for the Italian Olympic team and the Venezuelan Pan Am games teams. Under Neils’ master supervision and intensely detailed coaching, Andrew acquired both new skills and a refinement in his correct young horse production techniques. Here, he rode both young horses and grand prix level dressage horses.

After two years with Neils, Andrew endeavoured to continue his path of learning. He took an offer to ride as a test rider at Addleheistdorf, a formidable stallion test station in Celle, Germany. While there, he rode such stallions as Escudo, Londonderry, and the great De Niro.

Andrew then returned to the UK. He oversaw the training of the six international competition horses and 150 breeding horses, including five stallions. He competed the young stallions and was locally renowned as a stallion trainer and handler. He continued his dressage education with the internationally acclaimed dressage rider and trainer, Emile Faurie.

Andrew’s ardent drive and aspirations next landed him the position of the head trainer at Seneca Ridge Trakehners in Mt. Dora, Florida. While there, he both produced and competed the studs young horses, winning many national competitions.

After two years, Andrew left Seneca Ridge to become a dressage instructor at Braveheart Farm in Sandford, Florida. Whilst at Braveheart Farm, Andrew trained and competed many young horses and qualified for and competed at the U.S dressage federation National championships.

After four years in America, Andrew decided to return to the UK where he has since been based with his long time trainer and mentor, dressage Olympian Emile Faurie.
