2015 CDI-W Stuttgart

Spanish Beatriz Ferrer-Salat captured her second World Cup qualifier victory in a row at the 2015 CDI-W Stuttgart, Germany, on 19 - 22 November 2015. Aboard Delgado she swept the Grand Prix and Kur to Music with 83.300%. Isabell Werth was the runner-up on Don Johnson, but with her rising Grand Prix horse Emilio she claimed the Special tour and became the "German Master" for the 12th time in her career.


Training Your Horse

Generalisations are made to fit the majority. In dressage training generalisations can be quite often frustrating or counter productive, as riders try to achieve something that is theoretically suppose to happen a certain way, but unfortunately it just doesn’t. I was reading an article one day about training Lusitanos based on a generalised way Lusitanos move and react to aids and felt it was all wrong. Of course there are Lusitanos, mine included, that don’t fit that norm at all, and training them as such would be rather interesting.


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.
