ABOUT GREG SOLENTE
Customized Training to Achieve Your Dreams
Greg grew up riding in France, and began his U.S. riding career in Seattle, WA. He has worked for several trainers throughout the West Coast while refining his skills with young and developing horses and as an instructor.
Greg teaches the American Forward Riding system and is a loyal follower of longtime USET jumping chef d’equipe George Morris. With horses, that translates to a big emphasis on flat work.
“When you do your homework on the flat, then your horse learns very quickly over jumps,” Greg explains.
Horses in his program are trained to be very sensitive to leg and rein aids. “I teach a horse to be forward first and soft in the mouth. I want him to be responsive to my leg and to not fight my hand. It’s pretty simple.”
He has also completed the United States Hunter Jumper Assn. Trainer Certificate Program.
