Erik Herbermann was born in Amsterdam in 1945. His initial equestrian training was with Patricia Salt FBHS, a pupil herself of the Spanish Riding School. Subsequently, he studied under the celebrated classical riding teacher, Egon von Neindorff. Now residing in the USA, Erik Herbermann devotes much of his time to lecturing, teaching and conducting clinics internationally. As well as producing three editions of his enduring classic, Dressage Formula, and narrating an audio version of its third edition, he has also written numerous articles for equestrian publications in the United States, Holland and Canada. Erik Herbermann is a staunch advocate of classical ideals. His ideology is based on an objective study of the horse's nature, which seeks the depth of understanding and quality of work perceived in the greatest of Renaissance Masters. In common with these luminaries he views equitation as a self-improving art, rooted in the utmost affections and respect for the horse.
