Born in Amsterdam in 1945, Erik Herbermann moved with his family to Johannesburg at an early age, and ten years later moved to Canada. His initial equestrian training was with Patricia Salt FBHS, who studied at the Spanish Riding School under Col. Hans Handler, Richard Wätjen and Oberbereiter Lindenbauer. Subsequently, Herbermann studied under the late celebrated master, Egon von Neindorff.
Now residing in the USA, Erik Herbermann devotes much of his time to lecturing, teaching, and conducting clinics internationally. Besides having produced four editions of his perennial, best-selling classic Dressage Formula, of which he also narrated an audio version, he has written numerous articles for equestrian publications in the United States, Holland and Canada. This new volume From the Horse’s Mouth is a welcome addition to Herbermann’s insightful literature.

I enjoyed the first Erik Herbermann Horsema's Notes so it was not a big surprise that I also enjoyed this new expanded version. Mr. Herbermann is always thinking clearly and testing our knowledge and always makes you think about exactly what you are doing, when, how and why while riding your horse. Leadership not dictatorship is one of my favorite phrases of his teachings. This book will make you pause and think and offers a lot of sage advise for the rider. A great read altogether and one I would recommend to expand your mind.
