Markus was born in Germany; however he took Danish nationality
as he spent his childhood in Denmark.
He moved back to Germany at the age of 16 and began his trainee years at the famous Holsteiner Verband.
After becoming a fully qualified German Bereiter Markus worked for former German team member Heike Kemmer and the legendary George Theodorescu.
In 1997 a new venture took Markus to England,
where he established MB Dressage in 2001.
Markus has trained and competed up to Grand Prix dressage and has also represented Denmark at international events.
Gaynor is from Yorkshire and is the backbone of MB Dressage and Bauer Dressage Ltd.
Originally from a more eventing orientated background, she began to focus on dressage when teaming up with Markus in 2003.
Having an exceptionally good eye for high quality horses means no horse is imported without Gaynor's approval. Many horses selected by Gaynor have carried on to great success at all levels and at many major championships.
Gaynor's talent for training and reschooling horses and riders has made her a vital asset to the team.
