Matt Eagan Dressage

Matt is one of the top FEI level riders and young horse trainers in the Pacific Northwest. In just six years since returning to his home state, Matt has made quite a splash on the scene. As a trainer, Matt is well known for working with horses of all types and levels and improving them dramatically (young horses to FEI horses and Training Level riders to FEI riders), not only for the show ring, but also for improving their ride-ability and promoting better relationships with their owners. With Matt’s knowledge and attention to detail, you will see great results in your riding and your horse’s performance.

Matt is currently training with David Wilson, Henrik Johansen, Conrad Schumacher and Lisa Wilcox. Previously, Matt's training was heavily influenced by Hilda Gurney whom he worked for as a working student.

Part of Matt’s program is to measure performance by his own goals:

Goals For My Students

  • Have Fun
  • Create a list of goals for them and then accomplish those goals
  • Create an environment that is both challenging but also fun
  • Help them create a wonderful partnership with their horse

Goals For My Horses

  • Have Fun
  • Provide a safe environment for the horse to be healthy and happy
  • Make them more responsive and lighter to the aids
  • Make the horse successful for me to ride at home or in the show ring; and/or make the horse more rideable for their owner
  • Have the horse be happy in their work
