Basic Training of the Young Horse: Third Edition by Ingrid and Reiner Klimke
Model Number: 9781908809254
Over thirty years after the first publication of Reiner Klimke’s classic work comes this new edition, with completely new photos and updated by his daughter, Ingrid.
Based on sound, practical and theoretical advice, this instructional handbook gives advice on establishing a specific training plan for recreational riders as well as competition riders to enable them to train their young horses successfully. Every aspect of the education of a young horse is covered, including:
Basic education and handling, from foalhood
Lungeing and free-schooling
Backing and training under saddle
Developing impulsion from suppleness
Assessing and improving basic gaits
Preparing for the first competition
The name Klimke is synonymous with good riding. The late Dr Reiner Klimke was the most successful dressage rider in the world – not only was he an Olympic gold medallist, World Dressage Champion and European Dressage Champion, but also European Horse Trials Champion. All his victories and medals were won on horses he had trained himself.
His daughter Ingrid Klimke follows in the footsteps of her famous father. An Olympic and European gold medallist, she is one of very few riders to have achieved major successes at the highest level in both dressage and three-day eventing.
