Ten Broeck Farm & NEDA Welcome Frenk Jespers
April 24, 25 & 26th, 2009
Dressage and Young Horse Clinic
Frenk Jespers is famous throughout Europe and his native Holland as an accomplished rider, trainer, breeder and judge. Recently, Jespers left his position after serving nine years as a member of the Royal Warmblood Studbook of the Netherlands (KWPN) Stallion Selection Committee to focus more on training.
Jespers is a KWPN judge, rider, trainer and coach to Grand Prix rider Kirsten Beckers who rides the approved KWPN stallion Jazz. Frenk is also the coach of the Turkish Olympic team. He teaches classical dressage and stresses the need to take time and prepare the horses so they can be their best.
The audience and auditors always enjoy a highly interactive session when he evaluates the conformation and movement of each horse using the KWPN linear scoring. Last year the crowd touted Jespers as a “wealth of knowledge”, well respected by riders and auditors alike.
Jespers has described growing up in an area surrounded by jumping, yet says his heart has always been in dressage. Frenk brings a unique combination of knowledge to the arena. His astute eye for conformation and breeding experience is transferred under saddle where riders can benefit from his profound feedback. Frenk also spends a great deal of time evaluating each horse for confirmation, explains as he goes, and helps everyone understand what’s important to a judge.
Frenk Jespers has a very calming style that riders enjoy, he is appreciated for his international perspective, provides specific direction and he says that even with a quieter state of mind you can still get results.
