Dressage Masters: Techniques and Philosophies of Five Legendary Trainers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dressage Masters takes the reader into four of the greatest training stables in Europe. The master instructors express their philosophies and practices with regard to training horses and riders, preparing for and taking part in competitions, and the state of dressage in the United States and elsewhere in the world. They also share fascinating and enlightening stories about their own education and the triumphs and hurdles encountered along their paths to success.

The trainers are:

Klaus Balkenhol: Olympic individual bronze and twice team gold medal winner, who coached the German Olympic gold medal team and the USA Olympic bronze medal team; Ernst Hoyos: trained Ulla Salzgeber, winner of Olympic individual silver and bronze and two team gold medals, and Lisa Wilcox, member of the United States Equestrian Team bronze medal squad; Dr. Uwe Schulten-Baumer: trained Nicole Uphoff and Isabell Werth, each the winner of four Olympic gold medals. Isabell Werth also won two individual silver medals. These two riders are tied for the Olympic equestrian record of four gold medals. He also trained his son, Dr. Schulten-Baumer, Jr, winner of the Alternate Olympics individual silver and team gold, as well as an individual silver and team gold at the World Championships; George Theodorescu: trainer of many top international teams and riders, including his daughter Monica, three- time Olympic team gold medalist and twice World Cup champion.

Each interview includes insightful descriptions and sequence photographs of exercises and other teaching and competition techniques.

Already eagerly anticipated by the international dressage community, DRESSAGE MASTERS is destined to become both an instant and a perennial classic in the literature of classical horsemanship.
