About Michael Dowl­ing

Practical Horseman - - Editor's Note -

A pro­fes­sor of equine stud­ies at Cen­te­nary Univer­sity in Hack­ettstown, New Jer­sey, Michael Dowl­ing has co-coached the univer­sity’s IHSA team to three na­tional team cham­pi­onships, three re­serve cham­pi­onships and four Cac­chione Cup wins. He also runs a pri­vate show sta­ble, Wind­ham Hill, with Michael My­ers in Far Hills, New Jer­sey, and Florida, help­ing horses and rid­ers to qual­ify for and com­pete in re­gional, zone and na­tional hunter and eq­ui­tation fi­nals. Long ac­tive in all as­pects of the eques­trian in­dus­try, Michael is a mem­ber of the Glad­stone Eques­trian As­so­ci­a­tion’s hunter/jumper com­mit­tee. Most re­cently, he and his cousin Tucker Eric­son took over man­age­ment of New Jer­sey’s old­est con­tin­u­ously run horse show, the Mon­mouth County Horse Show. In 2016, they re­named it Mon­mouth at the Team and re­lo­cated it to Hamilton Farm in Glad­stone, New Jer­sey, the former train­ing head­quar­ters of the U.S. Eques­trian Team. It was named the New Jer­sey Horse Show As­so­ci­a­tion’s Horse Show of the Year in 2016.

Prac­ti­cal Horse­man thanks Lau­ren Reid for gen­er­ously al­low­ing her horse, Nor­way, to be used for the pho­tos in this ar­ti­cle.
