2016 French Young Horse Championships

The 4-year old Valentin, the 5-year old Diamondgio and the 6-year old Barroso became the winners of the 2016 French Young Horse Championships held at the Cadre Noir during the 2016 CDI Saumur on 23 - 25 September 2016. Belgian riders snatched away two titles and two reserve championships at this French young horse event.


Training Your Horse

In my experience there are two types of brilliant horses. One is the ego master, who is very full of himself and loves to show off. The other is extremely sensitive and rather timid and lacks natural confidence. Of course there are all the variations in between, but what most top horses have in common is the need for positive reinforcement, and I’m not just talking about when the good thing actually happens.


A Walk on the Premises

„Life is good“ comes immediately to my mind on that Tuesday morning at the end of August 2016. Standing in the courtyard of a typical Münsterland barn, the sun slowly developing its strength, the sky spotless and blue, I could not think of anything better at that moment than being exactly here. My camera and I waiting for some hours of action under pretty ideal conditions, also from an equestrian point of view, for a mini dressage immersion tour around Warendorf.


Child Stars - Where are they Now?

Former Dutch pony team silver medal winning rider Kimberley de Jongh gave up horses and riding after tragedy ended her very promising career at junior riders level. While she remembers her dressage dreams her life has now taken a new direction in professional body building.



From all nations excelling in dressage nowadays, Great Britain had to take the hardest way to get to Mount Olymp in the most refined of all Olympic disciplines, dressage. Within less than 60 years dressage in Great Britain evolved from an ignored sport practised by a few passionate ladies to the country's most successful discipline, taking home two gold and one bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games on home-turf in London.
