About Ingrid Klimke- Germanys Olympic eventing gold medalist and Grand Prix dressage rider, Ingrid Klimke carries on her legendary fathers classical approach to dressage.
Often one hears riders in whatever discipline say that their aim is to bring the horse to a certain level or to place highly at certain shows. These goals are absolutely legitimate, but we must not forget that they are only a byproduct of what should be our highest of aims: To make our horses more beautiful and keep them healthy through their training.
Of course, my father, the late Dr. Reiner Klimke, always strived for Olympic glory, but he was well aware that he would not reach this goal if he took shortcuts. He knew it was better to wait rather than to rush a horses training. He taught me to be aware of the individual horses conformation and mind because we want to keep him healthy while he works. And to do that, we have to consider his conformation and any weaknesses there as well as his unique personality because keeping the horse healthy is only possible when we are aware that his body and soul work together and cannot be separated.
No matter if my father was training a very young horse, an eventer or a high-performance dressage horse, his training was always based on three principles:
Keep variety in the training.
Take small steps.
Foster the horses personality.
Whatever he did, he would have these in mind, and he instilled them in me.
