HER BEGINNING:

Marta's innate methodology comes from her childhood's experiences at a barn in Madrid, where she shared horses' passion with her mother Isabel Delgado. At age 8, she started training and competing Nationally in Jumping Shows.  At age 14 she began her Dressage career with her horse Isenbrant who she self- trained all the way to Grand Prix. She still remembers dearly her first Dressage coach, the Swedish trainer Lena Ortendahl who introduced her to the discipline.  Later, Marta trained with world known trainers Bill Noble, from UK; Brigitte Van Der Hagen, from The Netherlands; 4-time UK Olympian Jennie Loriston; and the International FEI O-Judge Yvonne Visser.
