"I have always wanted to do something that I really love: Working with horses
Josefs' enthusiasm for horses is a heritage - his father has worked with horses. Being raised on the family farm "Hohenbögen" he spent his childhood on the back of horses- later on his own horse. Success on competitions were about to follow right after and therefore his passion was not only a spark, but a large fire!
After his commercial education, Josef went over to Paul Forkert in Bremen to be trained as a stable hand - horse trainer, closing this successfully in 1981. In 1993 he passed being a fully qualified riding instructor - achieving the "Silver Stensbeck"-badge.
Several winnings and placings for the trainee with renowned trainers like Johann Hinnemann, Siegfried "Bimbo" Peilicke and Manfred Kötter have smoothed his career start. In 1997 he has been awarded the golden badge for riding sports for his successes in dressage and jumping- one of the rarest combinations ever. Today he focuses on dressage.
Today, he even acts as a coach with pushing talents to their soft limits either on two legs or four hoofs. He sensibly reacts on talent, ability and power - always extending the borders.
To achieve the best results, Josef is able to gather from a large pool of experience from his collaboration with national and international sporting legends like » Sören Pedersen (Dänemark) and » Gerd Sosath.
