Silva Martin Dressage
A successful competitor through the levels of dressage, German-born and trained Silva Martin is also a sought-after instructor with high-caliber eventing competitors. Silva and her eventing husband Boyd are based out of their own farm in Cochranville, PA where they train horses and riders at all levels. Having relocated to the US from Australia in 2007, they have quickly become some of the most sought-after trainers in the United States.
Tall, athletic and elegant in the saddle, Silva may be a tough competitor but she is also easygoing and approachable, making her a superb coach. She has a solid education in dressage training and is happy to impart her knowledge to her students and horses.
Back in Germany, Silva passed her Bereiters exam at the German Riding School in Warendorf with an "excellent" mark and worked for noted horsemen Paul Beck, Rudolf Zeilinger and Hubertus Schmidt. Through these experiences she learned what a well-trained Grand Prix horse feels like and is now able to convey that feeling to her students.
A capable rider of many types of horses, Silva has won awards with everything from Warmbloods to Off-the-track Thoroughbreds, through the Grand Prix level. She is particularly talented with developing young horses and bringing them up through the levels.
Since moving to the US Silva has enjoyed continuing competitive success at major shows including Dressage at Devon, the CBLM Championships, regional championships and on the Florida circuit. In 2011 Silva and Faye Woolf's young horse Aesthete were named to the Developing Horse/Rider list.
Silva's current sponsors include Charles Owen, Revitavet, Stuebben Custom Saddles, Ecogold, Arenus/Equilite, Purina, Shires, Smartpak, and Theault Horse Boxes.
