I was born in 1989 in Lodz (Poland). I had the good fortune of being the son of a horse lover, and my dad soon introduced me to these amazing animals. Already as a child I had a special bond with horses. I just enjoyed being around these gentle giants, even before I started riding at the age of 13. I could always sense and assess the potential, the needs and also the limitations of the horses I was entrusted with, and I would take the necessary time to work with each and every one of them. The horses would pay me back in their own, special way: with cooperation and trust, which is why I was never in any conflict. Today, after many years' experience, this mutual understanding is still one of the fundaments of my training system, true to classical riding methods. I use competing in dressage tests at all levels as stepping stones in the horse's training and to assess the work I have done. I am very proud of the names of the trainers or institutes from whom or where I have had the honour to forge my own 'signature':
Basic training of young dressage horses with Inge and George Theodorescu
Training to become a Pferdewirt (professional rider) with a focus on classical riding with Susanne Miesner.
Ground work with sporthorses up to piaffe and passage.
Alternative approach to breaking and training, especially with problem horses or horses who need desensitising.
Preparation of stallions for approval/licensing
Training, competing and presentation of breeding stallions.
Master’s degree in riding, with a focus on classical riding and training under the supervision of Martin Plewa und Reiner Jäckel.
Correct long-reining work.
The turning point of my riding career: cavalry principles correctly applied to classical riding and training.
Movement awareness training following Eckhart Meiners helps me to achieve and maintain a supple seat and, consequently, the highest possible harmony between rider and horse.
Another milestone on the path of my equestrian development was laid by Alexandra Storch. She showed me the world of classical equitation from an different perspective till then. Developing a willingness to collect through the most in precise bending work with the slitest aids, to help me make my training and corrective work with the horses go beyond what was thought possible for each horse naturally and develop more trust and willingness to learn.
