David Shoobridge is an elite Australian dressage rider and highly sought after trainer. His partnership with the phenomenal KWPN stallion, 00 Seven, established them as one of Australia’s most successful combinations in the world of FEI dressage, and confirmed David as one of the leading dressage riders in the country. This experience, coupled with his acute eye for detail and his highly articulate and charismatic style means that David is also in high demand as a trainer and coach.
As a coach, David’s primary interest is coaching high performance, he enjoys embarking on training journeys with talented and ambitious, less experienced combinations, while encouraging and supporting all his clients to develop as independent, thinking, effective riders. He has an emphasis on providing structure and a plan for every horse and rider combination, which has proved incredibly successful, with many of his students reaching personal goals of riding at Grand Prix, competing in Young Rider Championships or simply finding the joys of training a horse through the levels.
