Meet the speakers – Adam Kemp

Adam Kemp (F.B.H.S) needs little in the way of introduction to Dressage enthusiasts around the globe as he is a highly sought-after teacher, trainer and coach. Adam’s career started at the Talland School of Equitation at the age of 16 when he left school and was offered a scholarship to train under Molly Sivewright and Pammy Hutton, a training course that ended up being 14 years in duration! During this time, Adam passed all the BHS teaching, riding and horse care examinations, culminating in being awarded the Fellowship of the British Horse Society in 1995 having passed the gruelling 3 – day exam. During this exam he was examined in teaching, coaching and riding at Grand Prix level. He was the second youngest candidate ever to pass the exam and the only candidate ever to have passed the specialist Dressage section. This puts Adam into the elite band of teachers, of which there are only 50 worldwide.
