Dressage training: Background and Tips
All riders, whether competing or riding for pleasure, want to have a tractable, relaxed and mo-
tivated horse when they are ready to get into the saddle. This depends primarily on the rid-
ers’ understanding of training and training methods. The more riders know about their horse’s
physiology and psyche, the better their understanding of these training methods.
By following the practical advice in this book, riders will be able to achieve their desired train-
ing goals most efficiently, while at the same time handling their horses gently and keeping
them physically and mentally sound.

Knut Krüger learned the correct and gentle method of training dressage horses from
Paul Stecken, who emphasized the importance of repeatedly riding young and even
older horses in a lengthening position. Paul Stecken had a training system for old-
er horses that slowly and systematically prepared them for correct collection by
teaching them to bend the haunches and raise the forehand. Knut Krüger works with
the training scale to teach horses the principles of rhythm, relaxation, impulsion,
etc. and keep them healthy in mind and body while doing so. He also takes hors-
es that have suffered under severe training methods and guides them to recovery..
Dr. Konstanze Krüger studied veterinary medicine, has been riding since she was young and was active in 3-day eventing. From 2005 – 2012 she worked on the social behavior and mental abilities of horses for the Zoological Institute at the University of Regensburg. Since 2012 she has been working at the Applied University of Nürtingen as a professor for equine behavior.
Further Information can be found on her website and in Wikipedia.
In this book, Dr. Konstanze Krüger gives a clear description of the medical basis for her training methods and how to use them.
