About the Author

German Olympic medallist and World Champion, Ingrid Klimke, rides internationally at the highest level in both dressage and in eventing. She has tirelessly championed a balanced, fair and caring system of educating and training horses to ensure physical and mental well-being for the very top levels of international competition. In 2012, she was the second woman to be appointed to the position of Riding Master by the German Equestrian Federation (Reitmaster).

Reviews

"Klimke has written an instructional book for sport horse fanatics that succeeds where many others fall short. ... She mixes in tidbits and funny anecdotes about her horses with the general training principles she uses to help them progress. The instructional sections are short and sweet and include diagrams and measurements, so you can set up her exercises. ... [A]n inside look at the training program that has brought [Klimke] so many accolades."--UnTACKED "She had the great, enviable advantage of being the daughter of the late legendary German dressage master Dr. Reiner Klimke. Ingrid Klimke carries on the family legacy and then some, excelling in dressage—although her primary sport is eventing—and becoming what many call the world's finest horseman of our time. "Students of dressage know the Kilmkes through their classic book, now called The New Basic Training of the Young Horse. Ingrid Klimke builds on that text with her new book, Training Horses the Ingrid Klimke Way. "This isn't a standard how-to dressage text. Instead, it's the closest most of us will come to spending an extended period of time in the Klimke stable. Klimke takes us through "My Guiding Principles for Training," including the equipment and the people who help keep Team Klimke and its horses happy and healthy. She discusses the elements of her training programs, from cavaletti to jumping exercises. In the final third of the book—perhaps the most fascinating—Klimke discusses "My Horses: Character Types from Shy to Go-Getter." She introduces some of her top horses, and outlines her training plan for each horse. It's a wonderful insight into a top rider's training decisions and how she customizes the work to suit the individual horse."--USDF Connection "Olympic gold-medal-winner Ingrid Klimke was born under a bright star when it came to fulfilling dreams of equestrian greatness."--Northwest Horse Source She had the great, enviable advantage of being the daughter of the late legendary German dressage master Dr. Reiner Klimke.
