Hailing from the small outback town of Charleville, Australia, Dom Schramm developed an affinity with horses from a very early age. This “country” influence is evident in his training approach and horsemanship today. Building on this background, Dom’s passion for eventing took him all over Australia, England, Germany and ultimately to the United States.
He first achieved international recognition as a member of the 2006 Australian Young Rider Eventing Squad. Dom also developed as a rider under the guidance of Christopher Burton, for whom he worked as a working student for two years. A brave and hungry competitor, Schramm also developed the patience, experience and knowledge to very competently start horses from the ground up.
Seeking a more internationally competitive atmosphere, Dom made the decision to relocate to the U.S. in late 2010. Since then, he has built a reputation in U.S. eventing circles for his riding ability, as well as his enthusiastic and fresh teaching style. Since coming to the U.S., Dom has piloted Cold Harbor to the old CIC three-star level (new CCI4*-S) and Bolytair B to the CCI5*-L level . He is currently producing a string of exciting young horses with an aim to represent Australia on the international stage.
