Martin was born to Toy Dorgan, an American speedskater, & Ross Martin, an Australian cross-country skier. His parents met at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France. He was raised in Terrey Hills, New South Wales. Martin and his wife, Silva, moved to the U.S. in 2007 to work with Phillip Dutton.
Martin purchased his best-known horse, Neville Bardos, for $850; Neville had been rescued from the racetrack by another trainer and declared 'no good' as a jumper.
