Dr David Marlin is a scientist with more than 25 years experience in biochemistry and physiology. He started off at the Stirling University in Scotland studying physiology and computing from 1978 to 1981. Finishing his degree David went on to train with dressage coach and rider Judy Harvey a fellow of the British Horse Society (FBHS) and Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) International dressage judge. Continuing David then went on to do a PhD on exercise physiology at the University of Loughborough,1989, which is the leading sports university in the UK after studying “The responses of Thoroughbred racehorses to exercise and training” for 4 years in the world renowned Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, 1985.
