Michael McCooe breeds, trains and sells sports and working horses internationally. He is based on the Swiss-German border, near Schaffhausen.
McCooe has over 40 years' experience working with sports and working horses, specialising in Warmblood sports horse, mostly German. He also handles Thoroughbreds, Irish horses and Cross-breeds.
From Xenophon to Podhajsky, Michael has studied horse training and horse psychology intensely in all of its forms, working and training with some of the most famous and respected trainers and riders - of all disciplines - of the past 100 years.
Dressage training is top of the list for all his horses, no matter what job they will ultimately carry out. Plus all of them are turned out to graze daily and are ridden out regularly through the beautiful pine forests surrounding his home. As a result all his horses are relaxed, well-schooled and easy to manage.
When not working with horses Michael likes to spend time reading and listening to Opera and classical music.
