Wellington, FL (December 21, 2012) – Some of the biggest names in dressage are coming together February 9-11, 2013 in Wellington, FL for the first ever Dressage Summit – including Christoph Hess, Walter Zettl, and recently joining the superstar lineup, Charles de Kunffy.
Charles de Kunffy can best be described as “a gentleman and a scholar,” and most importantly, an indomitable ambassador for the horse. Raised in the classical tradition, Charles is a firm believer in schooling the horse in a comprehensive system of training, including cross-country, jumping and dressage. Charles has also written six books on the classical dressage tradition, and is working on two more. His experience as a dressage judge, trainer, and author make him one of the most sought-after dressage masters and clinicians today.
We are excited to welcome Charles de Kunffy as a presenter at the Dressage Summit – his deep understanding of the classical tradition, coupled with his gift for imparting the theory and true purpose of dressage, makes him the perfect addition to this groundbreaking event.
