"The horse is my partner, not my tool. It doesn’t matter at what level you are riding, the most important thing is how you treat your horse, making sure he is happy at work.”
~ Monica Theodorescu
I just heard that the FEI has named international dressage rider Monica Theodorescu as Germany's new dressage coach. I spent a weekend with Monica, an Olympic gold medalist, back in 2006, shadowing her on a chilly south-Florida weekend in February as she taught an upper-level clinic in Wellington, FL. I learned so much watching her teach and wrote a story about it for Dressage Today. Check out more about her new role in this article in the Chronicle.
