Jadasa Jablonowski

Let's talk horse

The secret of perfect communication between rider and horse

The riding theory of Jadasa Jablonowski is completely independent of riding styles and is written in a way that every rider can understand.

The author has been asked so often: When are you finally going to write a book in which we can read about your training philosophy outside of your riding courses and apply it to our daily training at home?

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. With success! The result is a completely new riding theory, written in a relaxed style, with many examples from the everyday life of a professional trainer and over 60 detailed tap-by-step illustrations to make it easier to understand.

Maria Romahn-Schmidt

My perspective around the year

It is often the little everyday things that enchant us

Dhis book is as magical as a day in Maria Romahn-Schmidt's garden or a stroll through nature. On 160 pages Maria Romahn-Schmidt takes the reader on her walk - early in the morning at six. When the mist rises drowsily from the meadows and the hoarfrost slowly pearls off the leaves. Always with them: their camera or cell phone to take quick snapshots. The author captures the little magical moments and turns them into works of art for her readers with her pictures and collages. She achieves this so quietly. More reserved and impressive at the same time than any other amateur photographer.

The most beautiful mood board motifs from the book are also available to order as high-quality folding or decorative cards. 

Hardcover (German), 160 pages, size 23 x 25 cm, 39,90 €
Decorative card set, 10 pieces, format 15 x 15 cm,16,90 €

"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.
