from Annika Kiehn

This book is dedicated to the parks and gardens between the large sea, the Baltic Sea, and the small sea, the Müritz.
From the millennia-old primeval park of the Ivenack oaks to the 100 large classical English landscape park of Schlitz Castle, all are highly interesting gardens by the sea in their own way. The result is a beautiful illustrated book under the patronage of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Association of Palaces, Manor Houses and Manor Houses and its chairman Manfred Achtenhagen.

from Jadasa Jablonowski

Jadasa Jablonowski 's riding theory is completely independent of riding styles and is written in a way that is understandable and relaxed for every rider.

Jadasa Jablonowski has used the almost two-year corona period to write down all her basic knowledge on how to deal successfully with the horse as a partner. The result is a completely new riding theory, loosely written, with over 60 detailed tap-by-step illustrations to make it easier to understand.

Franca Bartke

Sports scientist & professional rider

"I'm always thrilled to see how much horses and riders benefit from working on the ground."

Franca Bartke is a multiple European Champion, multiple German Champion in the Allround Western disciplines and German Champion Showmanship at Halter 2023.

She says: "Working with horses is always a journey with highs and lows. With your first start, you embark on an endless journey of desires, emotions and a passion that can't be compared to anything else. One of the most beautiful journeys I know. An endless journey with your partner, the horse."

Tobias Nikolajek

Poscaster "The GUTSHAUSPOD"

"People and their listed houses. A life between ideal and reality"

Does what you once imagined correspond to the current reality? Or to put it another way: What is life like between the ideal and reality?"
This philosophical question has always fascinated author and podcaster Tobias Nikolayev. With their podcast "Der Gutshauspod", Ralf and he have embarked on a fascinating journey through the world of manor houses and country castles. The history of these places is mostly well documented and there are only a few gaps. But what about the people who are actively working to preserve this indispensable cultural heritage for us and future generations?

Jadasa Jablonowski

Professional rider

"It was important to me to write a riding lesson that applies equally to everyone"

Jadasa Jablonowski was born in Starnberg in 1980 and has been in the saddle since she was a child. Jadasa Jablonowski - affectionately called Dasi by her riding students and followers - is now a very successful international western rider and respected trainer in many areas of equestrian sport. She has won the Quarter Horse Congress in the USA three times, was third at the World Championships and is a multiple German and European champion. This year she was able to add the 11th European Championship title at the European Championships 2022. Her students are also often represented on the winners' podium in top European sport.

At home in Bavaria, Dasi has been training horses for many years, from young horses to top athletes. She is known for her particularly sensitive manner and fair treatment of horses as partners. Long-term training is particularly important to her. She also gives riding courses for riders of all levels throughout Europe.

Her first book "Let's talk horse" summarizes the sum of her diverse experiences and insights. It reveals her view of horses, riders and training - and how riders and their horses can become a real dream team. The decisive factor here is not whether the rider is aiming for competitions. It's about pure, correct riding that allows horse and rider to grow into a bond.
