Henry Wynmalen – A Talented Dutchman
As part of our studies concerning the theory of riding , I wonder how many of you have read or studied the work of Henry Wynmalen? This talented Dutchman, latterly based in England and a highly educated man , preached gentleness and tact at all times with his mainly TB horses.
Much influenced by the French School , he Wrote 3 very important books.. Dressage, Equitation and The Horse in Action. Having sustained a number of light aircraft crashes, he was quite unable to ride without considerable pain... Yet despite a crippled back, he persevered and his books show a depth of understanding and tact far beyond the work of most able bodied riders.
I do hope he is not forgotten?? SL
