TSB Author Anja Beran’s Lusitano Stallion Performs in World Famous Circus Krone

The world-famous Circus Krone, based in Munich, Germany, is the largest circus in Europe and the only one to occupy a permanent building (with seats for over 5,000 spectators). Along with fantastic displays of acrobatics, exotic animals, music, and comedy, the circus has always promoted classical equestrianism, first under Director Christel Sembach-Krone, and now her successor Jana Mandana Lacey-Krone continues the tradition.

Lacey-Krone has collaborated closely with TSB author and horse trainer Anja Beran for a number of years, so it only made sense to have one of Beran’s horses star in the show during the month of March. Beran’s stunning dun Lusitano stallion Ramses wowed crowds with his performances. But Beran’s intent was not to only demonstrate classical dressage movements (the exterior of the horse) but also to prove how her method of training according to classical principles cultivates manners, willingness, composure, and “sparkle” (the interior of the horse).

Ramses, bred from a famous Portuguese bullfighting line, performed happily, unruffled by the large crowds, applause, lighting effects, and dramatic music. He was the perfect gentleman!

If only we could all say as much about our own horses’ appearances in public!

Check out Anja Beran’s book CLASSICAL SCHOOLING WITH THE HORSE IN MIND and her DVDs ELEGANT DRESSAGE TRAINING 1, 2, and 3 at the TSB bookstore.

All-New HUGE Selection of Horse DVDs: Classical Dressage, Driving, Vaulting, Trick Training, Friesians, and MUCH MORE

The much-talked-about meeting between French master Philippe Karl and German trainer Christopher Hess--and the debate over training philosophies.

TSB just added a huge new selection of horse training and riding DVDs to its bookstore. We’re honored to now be the exclusive North American distributor for the highly respected equestrian filmmaker Pferdia TV.

Featuring internationally renowned riders and trainers such as Philippe Karl, Dr. Reiner and Ingrid Klimke, Linda Tellington-Jones, Anja Beran, Peggy Cummings, Richard Hinrichs, and many others, these DVDs are a “who’s who” of movers and shakers in a number of equestrian disciplines. You’ll find titles on classical and competitive dressage, starting young horses, driving, vaulting, in-hand work, long-reining, and trick training, as well as a number of incredible films focusing on breeds, including Friesians, and famous stallions, such as Donnerhall.
