Denny Emerson’s success in the Eventing world is legendary. However, what many people don’t realize is the diversity of his career. Named “One of the 50 Most Influential Horseman of the 20th Century” by Chronicle of the Horse, Denny started out riding western on his first pony. Then he learned about the GMHA 100-mile Competitive Trail Ride and became interested in distance riding. During this time he also competed Morgan horses. It wasn’t until his late teens that he attended a three day event as a spectator and knew he had found his calling. He is the only equestrian in the world to have won both a Tevis Cup buckle and a Gold Medal in International Eventing.
It’s not easy to build a career as a professional equestrian. It takes money, discipline, talent and opportunity. In his book, “How Good Riders Get Good” Denny discusses seven critical areas of choice that riders (of all disciplines) must examine in order to become “good.” The book also includes perspectives from 23 top riders from a variety of disciplines including dressage, reining, driving, show jumping, endurance, natural horsemanship and eventing.
At Equestrian Professional’s live webinar, Denny will discuss live and in person some of the most important crossroads in a professional equestrian’s career. How Good Riders Get Good – A Lifetime of Insights With Denny Emerson” will help professionals discover the criteria necessary for making good decisions for both their own riding and professional careers and for their customers.
