"A celebrity of the international dressage world, Klaus Balkenhol has an impressive record at the highest levels of competition. With two Olympic golds and an individual bronze, along with innumerable German, European and World Cups wins to his name, he was a legend long before he assumed his role as Chef d'Equipe [coach] of the US Dressage Team [a position he held for 8 years, until after the 2008 summer Olympics]. ...Today, Klaus Balkenhol stands as one of the few international advocates of classical training principles. He faithfully adheres to the elements of the Training Scale, and convinced of its value, he fights for it, and isn't afraid of making himself unpopular if necessary..." During his legendary career he has worked with some of the top, international dressage riders and trainers, many of them World and Olympic medalists: Steffen Peters, Willi Schultheis, Linda Tellington-Jones; Nadine Capellmann; Leslie Morse; George Theodorescu; George Williams; Debbie McDonald; Nicole Uphoff; Isabel Wrth; Guenter Seidel; Alexandra Simons-de Ridder; Dr. Uwe Schulten-Baumer; Ulla Salzgeber; Robert Dover; Lisa Wilcox; Britta Schoffmann; Michael Klimke; Hubertus Schmidt; Ingrid Klimke; Anabel Balkenhol; Bettina Hoy. Reading this book is not only a full course in how to correctly and humanely achieve the highest levels of dressage, but the love and passion of Klaus Balkenhol permeates every page; the respect he has for each and every horse he has ridden and trained, as well as those who have trained him, and the high regard in which he is held world wide. I treasure my copy of this book, and as I'm schooling, repeat to myself many of the lessons he teaches, and has proven, to improve my own qualities and abilities as the eternal dressage student. ; B & W and color photographs; 0.8 x 9.7 x 6.9 Inches; 159 pages; Book has minor shelf wear.
