    Default At least Matthias has learned something from Sjef Janssen

    At the press conference at Hagen Matthias said. "From now on I stop trying to please the crowd and only take decisions based on my own feelings" and "I already got used to the fact that if we win it's Totilas that won and if we lose it was Matthias that lost"

    I don't think he learned that from Sjef.

    Sjef could take a lesson in personal grooming from Matthias though.

    @MelantheLLC: I thought Sjef looked pretty good in his interview with Larry King:

    Exclamation moreover

    It also says that, in the past the horse had been ridden to world record scores by Gal who, is one of the riders from the dutch school where RK developed; also, in the EM a little "freshness " was permitted and the scores were not good. It implies pretty directly that EG used RK with Totilas to obtain his high scores

    Thumbs up the author actually says this!

    It states fairly directly, with RK/ force came high scores, world record scores, without come poor scores, no medals; also, though the horse brought a promise of Gold medals to the German team, and was worth millions there is now no oneto lease/ support him; his value lies only in past records

    I don't think you want to see more of the training

    But if you want to see more : Go to Vienna 06.00 AM, have breakfast in Sacher and sneak in the Riding School before the tourists come.
