Grant Schneidman made his professional name in three-day eventing with the USET team starting in 1979. He represented the USA in international and national competitions for 16 years. Grant has placed 1st or 2nd in most of the major three-day events in this country and represented the USA as a member of the USET in Europe, being based in England from 1990-1992.
While still competing, Grant trained and coached many students for all the major three-day events in the US and Canada, North American Young Riders Championships and Pan-American Games.
In 1995, after four knee surgeries, Grant retired from eventing and began concentrating on dressage. He has competed through Grand Prix as well as all of the USEF and FEI levels. He received the USDF Gold Medal in 2002. Grant has won too many championships to list.
In addition, Grant has trained many horses through Grand Prix. After training his previous partner, Superman, to Grand Prix, he was sold to Japan’s Equestrian Team. He and his current partner, Charlie, will compete at Grand Prix in the spring.
It is said that a good trainer can hear a horse speak, but a great trainer can hear him whisper. Grant hears the whisper. He has many devoted clients and has trained everyone from beginners to Grand Prix. He is the consummate professional, and his patience, knowledge and humor has made him a much sought after trainer and clinician.
Grant’s dressage philosophy is that ‘There is an answer for every horse and rider. You just have to find it!’
Grant has trained with Jessica Ransehousen, Sandy Pfleuger-Phillips, Pam Goodrich, Jan Ebeling, Conrad Schumacher, Jack LeGoff and Bruce Davidson and many others. He has over 37 years of experience training and competing through the FEI levels in North America and Europe.
