I was first introduced to Matt Brown by longtime clients who were training with him in California. Matt ran a successful training stable in California, but they saw in him the ability to compete at an international level. 

After his decision to take the leap and move East to continue his own training with his eye on a position with the team, I met up with him and instantly saw the commitment and integrity that I was told was at the core of his drive to reach the top. Since it is not easy to start over on a new coast, I agreed to help sponsor Matt and was able to secure valuable partnerships for him with both Tucci and Samshield. 

It has been a pleasure to watch him become established here in Chester County and put down roots in a talent rich eventing community that has welcomed him to join them.

When we make a decision to have the Malvern Saddlery Ltd, name associated with a rider, we look for shared values as horseman and a high level of integrity. From the start, we have felt that the humility and ethics that Matt brings to the sport is something we are proud to support. We wish him continued success on his journey to the top!

The eventing podcast, Major League Eventing, recently sat down with event rider Matt Brown. They write in their introduction:

"Matt has had plenty of struggles making his way to the top of the sport.  Matt shares how the support and encouragement of  his wife & partner Cecily is the key to his success.  This is a great episode for that person that was told their dreams were too lofty.  You too can achieve your goals and Matt is a perfect example of this. Enjoy!"
