"Dave Stuart is one of the fine young horsemen in the world. His ability to understand horses and teach the concepts of working with them is rare. Plus he's an all around good guy. It's been a real pleasure to get to know Dave and work with him on occasion. I know Dave as a student as well and he fully understands that there is always more to learn and he dedicates himself to the quest of knowledge. That too is rare. Learn from a master student."− Craig Johnson (15 time World Champion, million dollar rider, clinician)
"Ivana and I have heard the name Dave Stuart spoken with respect and admiration since we entered the natural horse world seven years ago. Over the past 4 years we have come to know Dave personally and professionally and are extremely proud to be associated with him.
His quest as a student of horse behavior and his dedication to passing on this unique knowledge in his seminars is without a doubt of the highest standard that we have ever come across. His patience, quiet manner and care for the horse and his students are often beyond comprehension as he brings the most unruly horse and the most uneducated of horseman together creating a unique partnership at all levels. The Equine Touch Foundation has no hesitation in endorsing and recommending David Stuart as a trainer of integrity with the highest respect and understanding for the horse."− Jock and Ivana Ruddock MVD
"As a previous Olympic 3 day event rider and veterinarian , as well as an international dressage judge, I initiated David and Charlotte coming to Dubai to help with the grooms and those associated with one of the Dubai ruling family s stable complexes. Both David and Charlotte have given a new insight into horses, and what can be achieved through a better understanding of horses and their innate behaviour. Their experience and understanding of horses and people have enabled our grooms to become more competent and proficient at handling and riding our horses."− Dr. Juan S Gonzalez-Martinez (Employee of Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum Dubai)
