Product description


A celebrity of the international dressage world, Klaus Balkenhol has an impressive record at the highest levels of competition. With two Olympic gold medals and an individual bronze, along with innumerable German, European, and World Cup wins to his name, he was a legend long before he assumed his present role as chef d'equipe of the US dressage team. So involved is he in the sport, one cannot separate his personal story from his training and riding philosophies, which are grounded in the timeless art of classical riding.Now, in this beautifully illustrated new book, you learn about both the man and his mission, as his biography is brilliantly interwined with his views on training the dressage horse. From fascinating personal anecdotes and reminiscences of Balkenhol's most famous mounts, to practical tips for choosing the right horse, adjusting the training scale to accommodate different rides, and even correcting specific upper level training problems, this book delivers both engaging memoir and relevant education.

About the Author

Dr Britta Schoffmann is a journalist, recipient of a gold German riding badge, Grand Prix rider, competition judge and instructor. She is the author of various horse books that focus on the value of a strong mutual bond of trust between a person and a horse.
