Head Trainer: Michelle Motyl
Michelle Motyl established MM Training in 2007. MM Training is currently located at The San Diego Equestrian Center in Imperial Beach, California.
MM Training specializes in Show Jumping, Equitation, Hunters and Hunter Equitation. Michelle balances training at home with time spent showing on the road. She believes the foundation on basic skills is developed at home and can be strengthened through the pressure of the show ring environment. Michelle’s students compete on both the "A" and "B" circuits, as well as some local schooling shows for those students who need an extra boost, she feels smaller shows are great confidence builders while large shows stretch riders to rise to a higher standards. Michelle has the skill and knowledge to teach children and adults from beginners to advanced riders. Her “Equine Clients” range from Thoroughbreds rescued off the race track to seasoned Warmblood Hunters and Jumpers. Michelle has trained with Richard Spooner, Nick Karazissis, and Tim Grubb and has also traveled to Stuttgart, Germany to ride with Edward Gal. Michelle’s many trips to Europe have enabled her to implement classic dressage techniques with the European method of show jumping.
