The intention of classical dressage trainer Anja Beran's DVD series is to give riders a different understanding of dressage and to make it clear that dressage is made for the horse and not vice versa! Together with her mentor Manuel Jorge de Oliveira, Beran shows that only correct dressage work develops a true riding horse. With well-conditioned musculature, and mental as well as physical balance, the horse matures and develops into a self-confident and satisfied riding partner for his whole — and hopefully long — life. Beran explains how horses can benefit from proper dressage training. She starts with a physical evaluation of the horse's weaknesses and asymmetries, and continues with specific exercises to improve his body shape and muscle tone. Gracefulness, aesthetics, harmony, and ease are the fascinating result of her training methods.

In this DVD, Beran works with a Westphalian gelding named Flamingo. Although he has experienced many ups and downs, he proves a perfect example of how classical dressage training is not only for Iberian horses.

In addition, Dr. Gerd Heuschmann, author of the international bestseller Tug of War, explains the scientifically important aspects of classical training.

About the Author

Anja Beran spent a major part of her childhood at her grandfather’s hunting lodge in Bavaria, surrounded by hunting dogs and horses. There she decided she would one day either be a forester or a professional rider. Beran ultimately chose riding as her life’s work. Horses brought her to Portugal in 1985, where she initially rode with Luis Valenca, and later met and worked intensively with Manuel Jorge de Oliveira, who remains her mentor. At home in Germany, she spent 16 years under the tutelage of Marc de Broissia, training horses of all breeds before eventually managing and running Gut Rosenhof, an astoundingly beautiful mountain farm and training facility in Rudratsried, Bayern, Germany. Horses are now sent from all over the world to work with her and her outstanding staff—at Gut Rosenhof, every horse is allowed to develop at his own individual speed, gently, and with great care for the classical ideal of true horse and rider harmony.
