Michael prides himself on being diligent in promoting his own education, being in current training with Olympic Canadian Eventer Bruce Mandeville as well as having trained under recent Olympic Bronze Medalist Phillip Dutton, Denny Emerson, Doug Payne, Boyd Martin, George Williams, and many more top competitors and instructors. Michael has experienced a number of different teaching styles ranging from very theoretical-based to very practical-based, and enjoys being able to draw from both sides to create a well-rounded approach to riding.
Michael’s top accomplishments include his back-to-back CNC ½* and CNC 1* National Championships in 2015 and 2016. The CNC ½* and CNC 1* are a throwback to the days of the Classic Long Format Eventing in which horse and rider must compete in 3 additional phases beyond the current 3 phase format of eventing. This requires immense training, preparation, and conditioning to complete these events. Michael and Fernhill Cayenne took home the National Championship in the CNC ½* in 2015 and returned the next year to claim not only the championship title, but also the “Best Conditioned Horse” award in the only CNC1* left in the United States.
