Training Your Horse

What does it mean to “have the horse in balance”? What does it take to achieve this? Why can some riders do this and others can’t? Can you teach riders how to feel this? The truth is some horses are naturally very good at finding their own balance and others take a little bit more work.

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.

What's in a Name?

The 12-year old Dutch warmblood Whoopydoo made his way into Eurodressage's “What’s in a name" series not only for his colourful title, but also for his family orientated competition life as the ride for Dutch sister team Kyra and Rivka Klinkers. The strapping bay gelding, who is out of Kyra's Under 25 Grand Prix horse Tara, is home bred, reared and trained.

However, never before in their then 68-year old history had Olympic dressage been so much at a pinch as in July 1980.
