Matt started riding at the age of 6 at his local riding school near Bristol, after that first lesson he was hooked. Spending most of his spare time at the riding school Matt learnt from an early age discipline, dedication and hard work involved within the horse industry.
In 2000 Matt packed his belongings and moved to Denmark having decided that he wanted a career riding horses. Matt was amazed by what he saw in the riding school every day. He helped the apprentice riders and enjoyed the hard work, he realised that he wanted to become a professional dressage rider.
In 2004 Matt returned to the UK and worked at the Nibeley Stud where he back, trained and successfully competed their young horses. He was training with Carl Hester where he was given some fantastic opportunities.
During 2005 Matt realised he wanted to go I alone while competing his young horses. It did not take long for Matt to turn heads in the dressage world. 2005/2006 Matt joined forces with Adam Kemp and in 2009 AM dressage was established.
