High performance women coaches are always intent upon unlocking the secrets behind success in the daunting Olympic environment, with success being defined as winning that elusive Olympic medal. Researchers Cari Din and Penny Werthner position strong and committed leadership as an essential ingredient of such success.


A Walk on the Premises

Coby and Marlies van Baalen's "Dressage Stable Van Baalen" is nested in the flat, rural countryside in Brakel, The Netherlands, located in between the rivers Maas and Waal. Based on fertile farmer land with fields stretching as far as eyes can reach, this quiet dressage yard has been a centre for cultivating young dressage talent from grassroots level up to Grand Prix. The training centre was proclaimed "Dutch Equestrian Entrepreneur of the Year" at the 2014 Horse Event in Deurne, The Netherlands, rewarding Team Van Baalen for its professional and successful management of their thriving dressage business.


Young Guns in Dressage

For German junior rider Lucas Alecco Roy his dressage career is one juggling multiple duties and learning from the "words of wisdom" he gets at school, from his trainers and from his horse. At the 2014 CDI-PJYR in Babenhausen on 11 - 14 September, 17-year old Roy and his Hanoverian stallion Wisdom finished third in the Kur to Music finals with an international personal best score.


French Equitation

When speaking of "modern French classical equitation" it might sound antithetical to some; to speak of a “modern” and yet “classical” approach. In that case “modern” just implies that an approach also takes into account the requirements of competition without neglecting national classical principles. General Durand, the former chief rider of the Cadre Noir and a very influential personality of French equitation in the second part of the 20th century, once defined it as “a moderate Baucherism grafted onto a classical tradition.”
