have special clinics at Fieldstone Farm from time to time.
Brad Cutshall is one of the
instructors we bring in to give
us dressage clinics.
Please check in later for future offerings.
An FEI rider, trainer, and clinician, Brad
also imports horses from Sweden and Holland through Landmark
Farms. His approach to training, emphasizing softness and
suppleness, has been developed during almost 20 years of
training with some of the world's leading dressage riders
Interested in horses at an early age, Brad's formal training
began at age 14 with four-time British Olympic dressage
coach Robert Hall. His training continued with dressage
Belinda Nairn, Carol Olford Grant, and
Kyra Kyrklund. Through these and other talented
trainers, his skills and theories continue to develop.
Brad's experience in adapting training methods while holding
principles constant has enabled him to achieve success with
a wide variety of horses and riders. His skill in uncovering
the basis of problems and treating horses as individuals
enables him to formulate training strategies for his
students that keep them progressing between clinics. Sound
theories, realistic application, and a true love for the art
of dressage make him a popular clinician throughout the
My goal is to be the best
trainer I can be...to emphasize strong basics--good gaits, happy horse.
To develop a core partnership between horse and rider...make sure aids
are understood from horse to rider and advance from there. To understand
the rider's needs and goals, and to understand the horses' needs. To
keep the horse sound in mind and body.
My goal is to keep
learning...because you never know enough. To aim for the Olympic team,
but not make it an all consuming goal. To maintain the standard of
training and care at LMF.
