On one of the finest Swedish summer days in 1990 a Scandinavian fairytale had a happy ending in the venerable Olympic stadium of Stockholm. This fairytale had started in Denmark in 1982 and which put Finland on the map of international dressage.
In 1959 two men trailered a horse to a dealer's yard in East-Westfalia, where they intended to exchange it for another, which would be more suitable for dressage. It was nothing uncommon in those days to do such exchange deals
France is well known for being a country where classical dressage got its most important impulses from masters such as Robichon de la Guérinière, Baucher, L’Hotte or Decarpentry and many others who did not write down their knowledge.
