Dennis Callin is an International Grand Prix rider and a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Gold Medallist. Having started riding at 12 Dennis graduated from the accredited Meredith Manor School of Horsemanship, attaining a Riding Master Certificate. Dennis then continued at the Manor as an instructor for a further 6 years. During this time Dennis had the opportunity to train with Ernst Bachinger from the world famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria and with the Swedish Olympian Col Bengt Ljungquist who went on to coach the1976 US Olympic Bronze medal winning team.

The opportunity to live and train in Europe was not one to be missed, including six years spent in Germany working with world renowned dressage trainers such as Georg Theodorescu, Jurgen and Christoph Koschel (with whom Dennis still works).
International Grand Prix success began in 1984 with second places for Team USA at the CDIOs in Aachen and Rotterdam.
