2016 CDI Geneva

Dressage is set to return to the CHI Geneva. On 8 - 11 December 2016 some of the world's top dressage riders will gather in Geneva for a World Dressage Masters competition. Isabell Werth, Kristina Bröring-Sprehe and Beatriz Ferrer-Salat are confirmed to compete in this renowned indoor jumping event, which will feature dressage, eventing and driving classes this year.


Training Your Horse

I was giving a lesson recently and I was surprised to learn that a rider who had trained with some of the best in the world had not been given or advised on what tools to use in order to maintain or get back the control. We all have those days when we come out onto the arena and the horse feels ‘prickly’. I say that Batialo feels like he has his hackles up, like dogs do when they are ready for action.


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.



It doesn't matter if in private discussion, different internet forums, social networks or certain publications on equitation, the cry for the "Good Old Times“ in dressage is heard regularly. It becomes even louder when international dressage suffers from unpleasant news, may it be bleeding mouths, neurotic horses or judging discrepancies.
