At the Vechtehof, training courses can be held all year round with Sabine and Wolfgang Egbers. Together with you we agree on your desired date, the number of days or weeks and are provided with a box including feeding service so that you can fully concentrate on your horse. Whether A dressage or Grand Prix rider, we take the time for your personal and individual training course.

Courses at your riding facility
Especially in the winter months, Sabine and Wolfgang Egbers run decentralised courses on various weekends throughout Germany and neighbouring countries. The bases for courses with Wolfgang Egbers in Austria are near Linz and Schloss Graschnitz in Styria.

Training courses followed by tournaments
This new concept is something very special for you and your horse. We would like to break new ground and offer training courses before our shows. The aim is to introduce horses to foreign environments in an even more relaxed way, so that an even more relaxed and stress-free performance is possible, especially with nervous horses. We are committed to preparing horses for new tasks in an animal welfare-friendly manner and want to give them enough time to do so.
The two-day courses take place in the respective test arena, so that a relaxed acclimatisation of rider and horse can take place. The participants of the course are invited to the show as individual riders by the organiser.

Successful course participants
I travelled with my 2 horses and enjoyed 4 days of full programme. On Thursday & Friday I took part in the training course with Wolfgang Egbers with both horses and was able to show my horses all the test arenas at my leisure. On Saturday and Sunday the dressage event took place at the Vechtehof, where I won the M* and secured 3rd place in the M**. We will definitely meet again.Iris Scheminowski
At Klaus Balkenhol's course, as well as with Wolfgang Egbers, I was able to take away many impressions for both horses, so that I was able to celebrate my first S* victory the following weekend.Thassilo von Lösch
The most frequently asked questions about courses
How long does a training session last during riding lessons?
In principle, a lesson lasts 45 minutes. At the beginning of the training session the horse does not necessarily have to be loose. This will be worked out during the training session.
After consultation, lessons of 30 minutes can also be booked, whereby the warm-up or release phase should take place independently beforehand.
How many days can I book a course?
The Vechtehof is very flexible regarding the period of the course. Should you wish to book a course at the Vechtehof for several weeks, you must discuss this with Wolfgang Egbers early enough, as the box occupancy must be planned accordingly. Of course, there are also rest and recovery days for the course participants, which can be discussed individually.
How many weeks in advance do I have to book a course?
Optimally, you contact us with your request at least 1. month in advance, if not even earlier, that the desired date can actually be met. The earlier you contact us, the sooner we can guarantee your desired date.
Can I stable my horse at a training course at the Vechtehof?
Of course, horses can be stabled at the Vechtehof. However, this should be requested from Wolfgang Egbers in good time, as the boxes are usually very full.
What are the minimum requirements or level for the dressage course?
On site at Vechtehof the minimum requirement is A level dressage. The minimum requirement for away courses is L level.
