In Klimke's three training DVDs, the Olympic champion shares her key ideas for the successful training of horses. The main components of her training method include dressage exercises to improve suppleness and collection; pole work (cavalletti); lower level jumping obstacles; and basic training for cross-country. Klimke is ably supported in the dressage training component by Major Paul Stecken.

This DVD focuses on the following:

  • Dressage: Refinement of rider aids; development and improvement of straightness, impulsion, and suppleness; half pirouette; rein back; counter canter; grid work; dressage outside the arena; and much more.
  • Pole work (cavalletti): Loosening and strengthening of musculature at the walk, trot, and canter.
  • Jumping: Gymnastic series; individual jumps; familiarization with different fences and obstacles; jumping on angles.
  • Cross-country: Work over individual fences and obstacles, as well as a series of fences and obstacles; work over ditches and water.
