Walter Zettl's "Matter Of Trust" DVD Series From Premier Equestrian Approaches Landmark $1 Million Sales

Matter of TrustSandy, UT (February 16, 2012) Classical Dressage Master Walter Zettl’s DVD series “A Matter of Trust” has reached a prestigious landmark that many training videos – whether exercise, self-help or educational – rarely manage to achieve. Zettl’s “A Matter of Trust” series is approaching $1 Million in retail sales, making the series a huge success in not only the dressage world but in video sales in general.

In the five-volume “A Matter of Trust” series, Zettl elaborates on the theory classical masters have used for centuries. Zettl’s approach reinforces correct training methods, building a partnership with your horse, proper movements and above all gentleness in riding.  The series was produced by founders Heidi Zorn and Mark Neihart of Premier Equestrian, LLC, in conjunction with Dancing Deer Productions, LLC. “I met Walter at the USDF Convention in 2000. I watched his symposium and fell in love with him. I booked a clinic with him in Salt Lake City, Utah and when he taught the clinic I knew we needed to document his information so that his classical dressage methods wouldn’t be lost,” Zorn said.

Zorn and Neihart spent three years following Zettl to clinics all over the country, documenting his teaching from Training Level to Grand Prix. “Mark filmed, edited and narrated the entire series. The series wouldn’t have been what it is if it wasn’t for Mark’s creative genius,” Zorn said, adding that Zettl was pleased to have the series produced. “Walter was concerned about people who couldn’t get to a clinic or didn’t have access to top trainers. He wanted everyone to have access to his information and we wanted to preserve his ideas. There are only a few Classical Dressage Masters left and Walter is one of them.”

Zettl, a life-long equestrian with over 57 years of experience in riding and coaching the world's finest horses and students, is a Canadian resident who travels abroad teaching his life's work to equine enthusiasts all over the world. Zettl's many successes include coaching at international level competitions such as the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, as well as coaching at the North American Young Riders' Championship.
In addition to his “Matter of Trust” series, Zettl is the author of Dressage In Harmony and his latest book The Circle of Trust. He has written countless articles published in North America and Europe. “Walter’s knowledge of classical dressage is unsurpassed. This really is an excellent series and is very complete. Mark and I have been honored to join Walter in this venture, and the fact that the series has sold so many copies is a testament to the strength of Walter’s knowledge and this teaching,” Zorn said.

Premier Equestrian, a leading supplier of dressage arenas, horse jumps, footing, and stable accessories, sells the “Matter of Trust” series through their website at www.PremierEquestrian.com, as does Zettl’s website, www.walterzettl.net. “The series is also sold through Linda and Pat Parelli’s Natural Horsemanship website, http://parelli.com.
