Chris did a fantastic job on my Elementary Composition and the whole project was very easy from start to finish. We started with the video of my choreography, a discussion of what I liked and key words to represent the horse. We finished with a fantastic freestyle that scored just shy of 82% at it’s first outing and stood us 8% clear of the rest of the class.

For the Medium we started with an idea which grew and developed into a beautiful piece of music, which is a delight to ride to.
Winning the regionals with the music was the cherry on the top!

Chris has done two compositions for me. Lothario won Novice Open Regional Championships for the Northern Region novice and second elementary scoring 9 for the music and choreography. The music you have composed has really brought out his personality and is great fun to ride to, Rio and I both love it! The PSG Music for Donnerouge likewise is a pleasure to ride to, we were 3rd at our first Premier League PSG Music at Somerford this year and the judges loved the music, you have done a wonderful job yet again.

Composition - Prix St George
I was delighted with the original composition Chris produced for IBR Mollegard (AKA Harry). I wanted the music to be dramatic and to really reflect Harry’s jolly personality.

Chris did an initial composition and we built on it from there. A lot of work went into setting the music to the floor plan. Chris was really sympathetic to what I wanted and produced music that really worked for Harry's personality and the floor plan. It was tailored precisely to all his movements with really brilliant parts such as his pirouette music, changes and extensions. Chris was great to work with and I really ended up with something that is really original and I am positive will be successful!

Knowing I wanted something a little different to the usual music used for freestyle dressage and only having two weeks before our debut, I set Chris a difficult challenge, which I have to admit I thought was unobtainable. However, Chris more than rose to the occasion.

Chris was so easy to work with; he was professional throughout, quick to respond to any changes I requested, and from just a few descriptive words and a rather out-of-focus video I sent him, he produced a score that made my horses performance ‘come alive’. Each beat matched my horses rhythm and tempo and empathized the dramatic movements as well as the quieter sections. I could not be more pleased with the final result and it was such a pleasure to work with someone who could take the ideas floating round in my head and create a unique piece of ‘musical art’ just for me and my horse.

Chris came highly recommended to me by another Dressage rider for his excellent work in producing music for freestyle tests. Chris very quickly choose the correct music that fitted all my requests, and that matched the horse tempo and character.

I just rode the Elementary music for the first time this year and won on 76%, which means I've qualified for the winter champs. I got 8/10 for music!

Chris was very easy to work with and responded quickly to all my emails in a very professional manner. I will definitely use Chris again and have recommended him to all my friends. To finish on a high note, I competed in my first freestyle and won with the highest marks being awarded for the music!

Many thanks Chris.

Chris has made the most amazing collection of music for my freestyle dressage. Capturing my horses rhythm and emphasizing the different movements down to the last beat is extremely hard, as I know from trying to do it myself on previous occasions!

Its so wonderful to go into the ring knowing the routine and music will complement each other perfectly, blending together seamlessly and above all be totally unique to my test. It gives you much more confidence to do the best test you can do.
