A Passionate Vision
The Baroque Equestrian Institute™ was created out of the vision and passion of Tina Cristiani Veder and Bruno Gonzalez. They were each born into European equestrian families (Italy and Spain respectively) where the principles of Classical Riding were passed from generation to generation. Steeped in this understanding from childhood, they each also became avid independent students of the historical training methods and the artistry of Classical Riding.
Over the years they grew increasingly aware that the vast majority of American riders have not had the opportunity to understand and experience the powerful principles from the great Equestrian Masters of the 17th & 18th centuries. Through the Institute, their goal is to make these timeless truths accessible to the riders of today.
Your membership as well as participation in educational events will support B.E.G.I. in their mission to promote Artistic Horsemanship.
The current activities of
The Baroque Equestrian Institute™
There are many other exciting aspects now in the planning stages and under development. In the coming months and years, the Institute will offer a variety of educational opportunities, including instructional videos, books, online learning, and intensive courses of study with an aim towards accreditation of BEGI endorsed trainers and instructors.
“Practice, stripped of sound principles, is nothing more than routine that only results in a forced and uncertain performance and a false brilliance.”
