Stephen Clarke is a world-renowned Dressage judge, former competitor, and trainer.

As an FEI 5* Dressage Judge, he is equipped to teach and advise all levels of the sport. Stephen is a master at choosing suitable exercises for each horse and rider combination with his priority being relaxation, and the physical and mental well-being of the horse. His calm, consistent approach makes it easy for riders and auditors to discuss issues and ask questions.
