2015 CDIO Rotterdam

Belgian rider Fanny Verliefden always knew that the 10-year old KWPN mare Annarico (by Lord Loxley x Havel) was something special  and having just taken out the Grand Prix Special 3* at the 2015 CDIO Rotterdam on 18 - 21 June 2015, it seems that her instinct was spot on.


Training Your Horse

Canter pirouettes, canter half pass, canter transitions; they all have a very vital component in common: the ability to collect the canter. How many times have we seen a rider fly into a pirouette and then haul the horse around without showing any degree of sit or collection.


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.
