About MW Training

M W Horse TrainingMark competes across the UK on the national circuit, producing young horses and gaining good results at championships all across the country.

Mark started riding before he could walk. Growing up around horses Mark has learnt by ‘doing’ as well as by professional training throughout his career to improve his ability. Mark competed his first couple of ponies unaffiliated, learning the basic skills, at the age of 8, he then joined the BSJA and competed a new 128cm pony for 3 years, qualifying for the national championship for the golden bears under 10's and locally winning smaller classes.

Mark then progressed onto 148cm ponies, skipping the 138cm due to his height and aspirations of producing youngsters. He then produced 2 148cm ponies from a 2 and 4 year old onto the national circuit, gaining results all across the UK at venues such as Wales and the West, Towerlands, Blue Chip.

 

Mark also started his horse career early, keen to progress. At the age of 13 he competed in the national trials to be selected for the European Championship for children on horses. He was successful in this trial but just missed out on selection. Mark gained good results on the national circuit up to 1.25m including wins such as Wales and West rising starts, Weston lawns 1.25m open, all under the age of 16.

MW TrainingMark sold the ponies that he produced at the age of 14 and both have gone on to be successful at their new homes.

Mark started to develop his string of horses buying two younger horses to add to his original horse. The younger horses were produced slowly whilst keeping a competitive edge on his more experienced horse. The 2 younger horses have both come up through the age classes and national competitions and are both competing at a good level and still progressing.

More recent results include winning the British Masters qualifier at Addington Manor and coming 6th in the final; qualifying for Hickstead main ring for the Winter Novice Championship.   

As well as competing his own horses, having completed his teaching qualifications, Mark is training riders in all disciplines and producing horses for clients.
