Peter is an International Dressage Trainer of world-wide repute. He runs regular clinics throughout Britain as well having taught in America, Spain, Germany and Dubai.
The emphasis on dressage training both horse and rider is based on many years experience and a balance of beliefs and principals that has put Peter Maddison-Greenwell up there amongst “the worlds top dressage trainers in his field”, as quoted in the book Pathfrinder Dressage by Penny Hillsden.
His philosophy and personality, combined with a sound depth of knowledge in training dressage and riding ability makes him absolutely unique in the equestrian world.
