Dressage Clinics Weekly visiting Instructor

Richard Howard has ridden, trained and judged dressage for over 40 years. He was fortunate to come under the tutelage of Franz Rochowansky, former senior Oberbereiter at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, early in his dressage career, and privileged to work with "Rock" for over 25 years in Texas and in Europe. Richard has also ridden with Mr. Hans Biss of Hamburg, Germany, for the past 28 years, hosting numerous clinics at Reiterhof. Mr. Biss is the former head of the German professional licensing committee, an FEI judge and an internationally respected trainer.

Thus Richard brings to his students and horses a methodology based on the Spanish Riding School's classical training techniques coupled with the German school's tradition of competitive brilliance. Richard has competed through Intermediare II and has trained a number of horses and riders to successful Grand Prix competition.

Richard was the Region 9 Young Rider team coach in 1996, and has since trained several NAJYRC rider/horse combinations to compete successfully in this prestigious international competition. Richard has also been instrumental in furthering the careers of several young dressage professionals in Regions 9 and 10. Richard currently serves as the Region 9 FEI Junior/Young Rider committee chair, and is the regional representative on the USDF national FEI Junior/Young Rider Committee.

Richard has judged throughout the region since completing the "L" program in 1993 with the highest score ever recorded in the program. He currently gives clinics throughout Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado, in addition to training and teaching at Reiterhof , the family's training facility southwest of Austin, Texas.
