This weekend Robert Dover is launching the first symposium of his World Wide Tour at Cincinnati Dressage Tradition. Robert is a busy man, having just attended the Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National Dressage Championships carefully watching every competitor from the Juniors to the top High Performance Grand Prix Division. Many of you have discovered his website He did a wonderful feature on JJ and me recently. I am very proud of him because he posted it himself, and figured out how to include the photos.

“For decades, Mary Phelps has been a big part of my life, both professionally and personally. She has literally chronicled my entire career and we’ve gone through all the highs and lows of life together as friends always do. As a photographer there is no better, and Mary has become a huge success as well with her multiple websites, like, not to mention her insurance business.

Turn around is fair play and, since Mary has done so many interviews with me over the years, I decided it would be fun as well as educational to do one with her. She’s had an amazing life and has given so much to all of us with her work as well as to charities like the Equestrian Aid Foundation, so please read and enjoy this article, and let her know we appreciate her with your comments.
