Somewhere between art, science, sport and business lies the career of a professional equestrian. Some professionals build their careers and businesses around their skills as riders and others as teachers. Whichever path is chosen, there are many career defining choices along the way.

It is these choices that Denny Emerson, author of Trafalgar Square’s bestselling How Good Riders Get Good,  will discuss at Equestrian Professional’s next horse business webinar. provides education, resources, and support to horse professionals around the globe. The site offers a wide array of programs, tools, and information to help horse trainers, riding instructors, breeders, stable operators, and professional riders run profitable businesses and build successful equestrian careers.

It’s not easy to build a career as a professional equestrian. It takes money, discipline, talent, and opportunity. In How Good Riders Get Good Denny discusses seven critical areas of choice that riders (of all disciplines) must examine in order to become “good.” The book also includes perspectives from 23 top riders from a variety of disciplines including dressage, reining, driving, show jumping, endurance, natural horsemanship and eventing.

“It’s been a long time since any book impressed me as much as Denny Emerson’s book How Good Riders Get Good,” says Elisabeth McMillan, editor of “As a retired professional equestrian, I wish I’d read it years ago when I was beginning my career. If I were still coaching, I’d probably insist every single one of my students (and their parents) read this book. It is simply a must read for all equestrians and their families. Not only does the book contain tips from top riders of nearly every breed and discipline, Denny takes the reader step-by-step through the journey that riders must take in order to become truly good. The honesty with which Denny writes and the wisdom behind his words makes the book a real ‘page turner.’ If you are a serious rider, you won’t be able to put it down. Denny tells you exactly what you need to know to succeed – the truth!”

At Equestrian Professional’s live webinar, Denny will discuss live and in-person some of the most important crossroads in a professional equestrian’s career. This webinar is FREE to all horse professionals but you must register to attend. To learn more about this event visit
