Retired FEI 4* Judge Angelika Fromming returns to The Equestrian Center with Johann Hinnemann, one of the best known and most sought after dressage trainers in the world. Our second annual symposium will examine the practical implementation of the six, inseparable basics of dressage - rhythm, suppleness, contact, impulsion, straightness and collection - as well as how a structured training system will help every horse advance.
Angelika Fromming's contributions to dressage as a rider, trainer, historian and judge are immeasurable. She masterfully addresses what she considers the essentials of judging: submission, relaxation, correct elevation, impulsion and lightness in the bridle. These qualities are the goal of proper implementation of The Training Scale.
Johann Hinnemann is recognized world-wide as a trainer and coach. He was Canada's Team trainer and the German National Coach alongside Klaus Balkenhol. His student roster reads like a "Who's Who" of Olympic medalists and various national champions, including Steffen Peters, Coby van Baalen, Marlies van Baalen, Ulla Salzgeber, Heiki Kemmer, and Alexandra Simmons de Ridder.
This 2-day event is part of the USDF Continuing Education for Dressage Judges program and USDF University. Thank you Maine Dressage Society for sponsoring the judges' program.
