Reiterhof, a small breeding and training facility southwest of Austin, Texas, offers classical dressage training for horses and riders from beginners through Grand Prix. We have an extensive lesson program at our facility, with limited boarding for horses in training. Richard offers regular clinics throughout the Southwest. We are specialists in helping riders find suitable horses for their needs and desires, whether our own homebred Dutch Warmbloods or through an extensive network of breeders and trainers throughout the United States and Europe.
Hans Biss, international judge and trainer, will be teaching at Reiterhof, Friday through Monday, October 17-19. Mr. Biss, who was the head trainer and head of the licensing committee at Warendorf, where all aspiring German trainers go to be certified, brings years of experience, an extremely sophisticated eye, and a world-famous dry wit to his lessons--we have heard riding with Hans likened to "the graduate school of dressage"--his articulate and exacting lessons are of benefit to those who want to lay a good foundation for their young horses, for those working through the levels with particular attention to the basics, and for those polishing off their Grand Prix! (and for those learning by listening as well). You can read more about Hans's biography on our "About Us" page under the "Our Mentors" section.
Please call Susan at (512) 423-4424 to reserve your ride(s). Auditors are welcome for $25 per day or $60 for all three days (or any part thereof). Owners, parents and grooms (1 per horse) exempt from auditing fee. Please bring your own chairs to the clinic and leave your dogs or other pets at home (we have a number of resident dogs who patrol for outsiders).
