Welcome to International Equestrian Connections
the ''City of the Horse'' - Warendorf, Germany.
My name is Linda Christie, and I am a dedicated equestrian with many years experience in the field.
My love for horses started before I could walk and this passion has never left me! As a young professional I strived to find the best riding education for myself and for my students.
Along the journey I rode with many top professionals in America before connecting with a German trained “Reitlehrer” (Pferdewirtschaftsmeister). Once I experienced the systematic approach to his riding and training I knew that I had found what I had been looking for. With that, I packed my belongings and moved to Germany to continue the ride……..........
Here's what I've found along the way ~……… I hope it can help you on your journey, as well ~ whether it's riding education that you are looking for or a school master to help you achieve your goals ~ please have a look!
