New cooperation with international trainer.
Since begin 2013 we are working together with the international trainer Tonko Barlagen in Germany.
Tonko was born in Holland. He comes from an establisched horsefamily. His grandfather was the first horseman who started breeding modern sporthorses in the 1920´s allready.
Tonko´s father was the national trainer in Holland from 1975 untill 1985.
Tonko competed at several European Championchips as Ponyrider, Junior and Young Rider. As senior he competed in international classes.
Twenty years ago he concentrated on training. Tonko has around 100 students in Germany.
With Tonko´s coaching juniors, amateurs but also professionals had allready a lot of succes in competitions up to 1.50m classes. Tonko´s students won 3 goldmedals and 1 bronzemedal on European Championchips for Pony Riders and Juniors.
Tonko has been also very active in other countries. Since 1993 he has been training a lot in Greece. In 2005 he became the national trainer of Azerbaijan to prepare the riders for the olympic games in Beijing. Other countries Tonko visits for clinics are Turkey and China.
Our son Venzislav and two other Bulgarian female riders stayed for three weeks on Tonko´s farm for training this summer. The last weekend Venzi competed very succesfully in a national show in Germany. In two starts he finished 2nd and 3rd in 1.20m and 1.30m classes which was a perfect preparation for the Balkan games in Turkey.
At Tonko´s farm there is allways the possibility to stay for training for a longer time.
Stabling, indoorschool and guesthouse are a few of the facillties.
