One of the greatest horseman of our time is back in the Midwest. His principles: Providing riders with an on-going, progressive and uniquely consistent schooling "know how" focusing on the basics of flatwork and using jumping exercises that educate and challenge riders. Of particular emphasis is the use of the "motor", using hind legs during lateral work and "shaping the turn". Mike makes a point of personal responsibility, encouraging each rider to "get the job done" with his signature discipline and good temperament.
During his 45 years of experience he has been associated with and coached some of the premier equestrians of our time. Allison Firestone, Beezie Patton Madden, Greg Best, Normal Dello Joio, Elise Haas who won both the USET Medal Finals and the ASPCA Maclay Regional Finals in her last junior year, and Ray Texel who won both the ASPCA Maclay and AHSA Medal Finals in the same year. Texel was the youngest rider to win both national finals in the same year. Out of the twelve finalists for berths on the 2000 Olympic Show Jumping Team, Michael had previously coached five.
