The 5-year old Grimani and the 6-year old Dolce Vita became the winners of the Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the big 2015 South German Regional Championships in Nordlingen, Germany, on 25 - 26 July 2015. Seventeen 5-year olds and nineteen 6-year olds contested the L and M-level dressage horse tests.


Training Your Horse

I recently read that the craziest, strangest, or less popular kids grow up to be the greatest people. Truth is that people who chance the world are unique. They are often not easy or “normal” in any way, but like I always said “no one got famous for being normal”. The same is true for dressage greats, and the truly special, gifted horses -- the horses that change your life -- are often not the easiest, nor quietest nor calmest. More often than not they have quirky personalities, big hearts, and can throw a nice tantrum just to keep you on your game.


A Walk on the Premises

"Only the best is good enough" and that motto is strikingly clear when one walks over the premises of Mount St. John, a breeding paradise of dressage foals destined for high performance sport based in the North of England. Incredible mare lines, a professional team of horse caring personnel and a grand vision led by owner Emma Jane Blundell make Mount St John the epitome of modern dressage horse breeding.


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.



How many dressage fanatics still associate something with the name Gustaf Nyblaeus; a name which was house-hold in the dressage community until 25 years ago? The life and work of Colonel Gustaf Nyblaeus should not be forgotten. He was a man who influenced dressage in a remarkable way and who still holds a record which might never be equalled: judging Olympic Games for twenty years in succession.
