WELLINGTON, Florida, Aug. 9, 2021–Nicholas Fyffe, who has ridden for Australia on Nations Cup teams in his 10 years living in America, has switched to now ride for the United States.

Nicholas, 39 years old, is based in Wellington and operates a dressage training business with his partner, David Marcus, a Canadian Olympian.

Nicholas came to the United States 10 years ago and initially worked for Oded Shimoni of Israel who is based in Wellington.

He competed in Nations Cup competitions at the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington in 2014, 2015 and 2018, the last two on Australian teams. He was a medalist in the 2018 competition. He competed Fiero HGF, a P.R.E. stallion, at Big Tour during the 2020 Global winter circuit.

“I’ve been living in the U.S.A. for more than a decade now,” he told dressage-news.com. “During that time I’ve been fortunate to be involved with the USEF and it’s excellent programs.

“Having developed a predominantly U.S. support team and clientele at Marcus Fyffe Dressage, it felt like a natural step to make. I’m excited to be part of United States dressage and its continued success.”
