Creating Grand Prix Horse K Balkenhol
“All of the work with a horse should be a game, and should remain a game, and it will become that much more successful. It requires a lot of patience and shouldn’t be taken so deadly serious. When one has arrived at this point, then later on everything looks easy.”Klaus Balkenhol
For decades Klaus Balkenhol has successfully trained and developed numerous riders and horses to the Grand Prix level using the principles of classical riding. Each horse and rider combination requires individual training methods in order to achieve their success. His work with master-class students like his daughter Anabel, Helen Langenhanenberg, Debbie McDonald, Mathias Rath and Günter Seidel, provide a view of training methods that are always connected to the basics of horsemanship.
