"From the time of our first meeting with Marvin I have been highly impressed with his knowledgable and professional  approach, his high standards, his emphasis on the welfare of both horse and rider, and his dedication to doing the best possible. This is evident not only in his coaching skills, but also in his approach to his own riding. We have observed him on many occasions, riding our own horse and others, in both training and competition, and he has a skill maturity that belies his years." -- Dr. F. Thompson, FEI 4* Veterinarian
