The New England Dressage Association

is thrilled to announce that

Olympic Gold Medalist, WEG Gold Medalist,
and two-time German Champion

Dorothee Schneider

is making her U.S. teaching debut in New England
at the 2019 NEDA Fall Symposium!

The symposium will take place
October 19-20, 2019
Mount Holyoke College Equestrian Center
50 College Street, South Hadley, MA

The German “Championmaker” and elite dressage rider’s “build” versus “buy” approach has repeatedly landed her at the top of the podium. Join us for our first–class educational event featuring this Olympic Gold and Silver medalist, WEG Gold Medalist, and two-time German Champion. Schneider has made two Olympic appearances receiving Team Silver in London 2012 with a 7th Individual and in Rio 2016 Team Gold with a 6th Individual. She also holds a Team Gold medal for the European Championship and rose to the top of the German Dressage Ranking in 2018.
A true testament to her ability to develop and train, she dominated the Dressage World Breeding Championship for Young Horses with unprecedented consecutive victories by winning the 5-year-old, the 6-year-old and the 7-year-old titles with the stallion, Sezuan. Four times since 2012 she has won the German Title of the Best Upcoming Grand Prix Horse. Her well-decorated career includes more than 15 horses that she trained to Grand Prix with two starting at birth—her homebred Van Deyk and Kaiserkult (son of Van Deyk).   more...
