Silva Martin is quickly becoming one of the most saught after dressage riders in the United States. She currently has a barn full of talented young horses in training and for sale. Her talent as a dressage instructor has caught the attention of several event riders and in addition to her dressage students she now coaches multiple top level eventers.
Silva will be spending the majority of the winter in Aiken, but will be traveling to compete in the southern states as well as Florida. Please check back frequently for her updated clinic schedule.
Silva Martin is a licensed instructor and passed her “Bereiter” exam in Warendorf, Germany with the mark “Excellent”. During her educational years, Silva worked with Paul Beck, Hubertus Schmidt and Rudolf Zeilinger, all masters of dressage. During this time she was fortunate to ride many well trained Grand Prix dressage horses and thus developed a feel for proper training.
Today, training horses and riders to the top level is Silva’s main focus, but she is equally adept at training young horses and inexperienced riders as she is Grand Prix competitors. She trains all her horses with the same basics that she learned in Germany, and is adept at translating that feel into words for her students.
