The first year under saddle sets the building blocks for the future of a riding horse: with a solid basic training he can do what is required of him willingly while remaining in the best of health. Twenty years after the publication of Reiner Klimke's classic work comes a new edition, fully revised and updated by Reiner and 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; lungeing; training under saddle; from suppleness to the development of impulsion; cavalletti work; jumping training; hacking; and preparing for the first competition.
Dr Reiner Klimke was the most successful dressage rider in the world; his achievements included Olympic gold medallist, World Dressage Champion, European Dressage Champion and European Horse Trials Champion. All his victories and medals were won on horses he had trained himself. Dr Klimke died in 1999. His daughter Ingrid Klimke follows in the footsteps of her famous father. A successful Olympic participant and European bronze medallist, she is one of very few riders to have achieved major successes at the highest level in both dressage and three-day eventing.
