Clinician Biography:

Conrad Schumacher is one of the world's foremost dressage trainers, having trained many students to international Olympic and World Championship level. He has been an influential force in the successful teams from Germany, Holland, Great Britain and the USA. With his many years of experience, first as a rider then as a coach, trainer and judge, and his excellent command of the English language, Conrad is able to communicate with clarity and candour the correct path for over 4000 horse and rider combinations.

Enhancing the rider's physical and mental awareness to create maximum harmony with the horse is now the cornerstone of Conrad's training philosophy. This dressage training philosophy has developed into a system with which he has trained of 4000 rider/horse combinations around the world.

His focus on mental fitness and rider awareness are enhanced and developed through his training of the horse with the basic foundations of the scales of training, his prerequisites for optimum performance ,and his selection of working patterns to achieve correct execution of movements throughout the levels.
