working with professional & non professional riders all over Belgium & Northern France, Germany and the US Breaking in as well as problem horses work. Clinics and lectures in classical Dressage....and on how to groom effectively. Real Estate
Over 25 years; moving from showjumping, to long distance, modern pentachlon and dressage under the tutelage mainly of Michel Henriquet & the commandant de Padirac...but also Rainer Klimpke...to vaulting and circensic training with Cabailhorse, shortly Hasta Luego and for 10 years the Théatre équestre de Wattrelos where I created, trained and prepared several shows.
show designing, Dressage & circensic clinics, a lot of young horses training for sale L/M level and a couple of Prix St Georges Horses. Although I am a firm believer of the Classical Dressage Methods ( I learned about the Oliveira methods at the age of 15 through Michel Henriquet) many of my students have proven that those methods are not incompatible with competition...and my former teacher and his wife Catherine Durand have also proven it during Olympics.
Back in Belgium
In classical Dressage and through breaking in my philosophy is a mix of influences. Podhajsky, Oliveira, Henriquet, Klimke but also K.F. Hempfling, Amaral, Luraschi, Lucien Gruss and even some cowboys...I pretty much learned a bit from everyone either through lecture, watching or working together.
won & placed several competitions between the age of 8 & 18 in Germany and Belgium.
