Show jumping, horses and riders training

"To awaken a horse's willingness to perform and to fully develop its capabilities is one of the greatest challenges and most beautiful tasks in the training of horses."

Elmar Pollmann-Schweckhorst was born in 1963 and grew up on the family business Gut Bärbroich in Bergisches Land. Since 1990, he has been managing this property with his granddaughter Christiane as a center dedicated to performance and international show jumping.

The equine master and professional riding instructor attaches particular importance to the partnership and relationship with the horse. "Horses are as different as humans. Each one has its own character, its own temperament and its own physical disposition " Elmar Pollmann-Schweckhorst has made it his mission to respond individually to these peculiarities and with the help of his many years of experience to promote jumpers and their riders in the best possible way.

As a coach, he is on the road worldwide and among his students are numerous championship winners and successful riders. Elmar Pollmann-Schweckhorst has also made a name for himself as an author and lecturer with the book "Springpferde-Ausbildung heute", other books and specialized articles.
