"I have time" should be the guiding word especially of dressage riders during the entire course of training and remind him of the fact that the goal of the classical art of riding is to be attained only by the gradual increase of demands."

Colonel Alois Podhajsky

Philosophy

 

Elena's philosophy fully embraces the quote made by  Colonel Alois Podhajsky (1898-1973), the director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria as well as an Olympic medal-winner in dressage, riding instructor, and writer. Classical dressage is the partnership and the harmony of horse and rider "dancing together" which takes years of hard, but fun, work, concentration, and determination to achieve.

Influences

 

Top trainers have influenced Elena's successful riding and teaching career. As an FEI rider she has trained with noted International Olympian medal winners: Edward Gal, Steffen Peters, Lars Petersen, Michael Poulin, Victor Ugrumov, and FEI Judge Christopher Hess. Elena has also trained with World Cup Finalist Jan Ebeling, as well as Walter Zettl, and Major Miguel Tavora.

Finding a suitable horse is generally an extensive procedure, all the more so as it now appears very trendy for many riders to look for a European horse. Fancy, possibly, but risky too. Elena will be happy to help you find the right horse next door, in the US or Canada. Based on her deep knowledge and expertise in all dressage matters as well as  her network of connections, she will find the right horse for you... and nobody else! She also takes horse on consignments to sell for the owners.
