Timothy F. Malin

Tim Malin has been a professional trainer, coach and competitor for over thirty years. Few can equal the accomplishments he has had in multiple disciplines. Tim and his students have had great success at both Hunter/Jumper “A” shows to the indoor circuit and at top Dressage shows. He owned and operated the show barn Golden Mean for over 15 years and is a graduate of The University of Connecticut. 

Tim is presently focused on his dressage career and has earned his USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. Tim has successfully competed in the Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle in the CDI*** divisions with his horse, Harmony's Coolio. With this horse, at his first Grand Prix, they were the FEI high scoring champions. Tim and Coolio spent 2008 in Wellington competing in Olympic qualifier CDI*** competitions successfully qualifying for the Special or Freestyle each time.  They also took home two 2008 Best Handler awards at the CDI jogs.He ranked 13th nationally at the 2007 Festival of Champions and is also listed on the FEI/BCM World Rankings.  He has received individual judge’s scores up to 70.5% in the High Performance Grand Prix level classes.  National and local organizations have acknowledged Tim with numerous year end awards from Training Level to Grand Prix.  He is a top competitor at prestigious shows including Dressage at Devon, The Palm Beach Derby Series, The Winter Equestrian Festival and the Festival of Champions at the USET headquarters. He was also highly ranked in the Pan American Games Qualifiers for US Equestrian Team in 2004.

Tim has acquired references from two Olympians from two different countries for sponsorship from The American Horse Trials Foundation.  Tim has been significantly influenced by Olympian Ashley Holzer who coached him exclusively for seven years. Tim utilizes his background in Sports Psychology and body mechanics with the Alexander Technique to help students overcome their challenges. He is a positive, solution-oriented trainer who can evaluate the needs of both the horse and rider and put together a successful combination. Tim is available for clinics and lessons in Dressage and Jumping.  

One question everyone asks:  What is Golden Mean?  Golden Mean is the name I chose for my business.  Golden mean refers to the mid-point between any two extremes - a point of "balance".  It is my goal to help horses and their riders find their own personal "mean".
