Availability: Available now

  • Multi-disciplinary approach.

  • Exercises in all four areas of dressage, pole work, jumping and cross country.

  • Enhance skills and compensates for weaknesses.



Ingrid Klimke introduces her multi-disciplinary approach, using exercises in the four areas of dressage, pole work, jumping and cross country to produce a versatile, confident young horse.

If one were to conjure up an image of an athletic, forward moving and motivated dressage horse and accept the German FN guidelines as the basis for training horses correctly, only one name would immediately come to mind, Ingrid Klimke. She learned to ride correctly from the absolute basics right through to the highest technical level and continues in this vein today, single-mindedly, passionately and with the utmost success in all of the three disciplines of dressage, eventing and show jumping. Those who learn from her can be certain of being on the right track.

In these three training DVDs, the Olympic champion shares her key ideas for the successful training of horses. The main components of the training include dressage exercises to improve suppleness and collection, pole work (cavaletti), jumping and training for cross-country. Ingrid Klimke is ably supported in dressage training by Major Paul Stecken.

Ingrid Klimke, Olympic and World Champion follows in the tracks of her famous father, the dressage legend, Dr. Reiner Klimke. She is the only professional rider in the world, who rides successfully at international level in both dressage and eventing. Ingrid Klimke has also taken the motto of Dr. Reiner Klimke, her father, firmly to heart, namely that “Riding should improve the beauty and strength of the horse”. With this in mind, she trains her horses to be as versatile as possible. Forcing young horses to specialise too soon can prevent them from developing to the best of their ability. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, she enhances skills and compensates for weaknesses. Under Ingrid Klimke’s tutelage, young horses learn with enjoyment and enthusiasm. Away with the same old daily routine! The training of horses should be fun, allowing both horses and riders alike to shine.
