Henk van Bergen is a Dutch Master Trainer. He worked his way up through the ranks of the Brakkenstein Dressage Stable as a young man, and he eventually purchased the beautiful property, developing the business into a successful dressage training facility, as well as the host site for the Dutch National Championships for over 20 years. He became a Royal Dutch Certified Instructor in 1966, and some of the highlights of his career include the following: He first coached the Dutch Olympic Team in 1972, and they won the Silver Medal in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He also coached several private students in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, and coached the Japanese Dressage Team at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. He was hired by the British Dressage Team to coach their National Young Rider's Developing Team from 2002-2010, and was part and parcel of the development of the 2012 British Olympic Team, who won the Gold in the 2012 London Olympics, denying the German team the gold for the first time in decades! Henk has been a popular clinician here in the USA, and was the USDF clinician for the USDF Adequan FEI Level Trainers Symposium in 2009 and 2010. Currently, he sites on the FEI Judges Supervisory Panel, which was created by the FEI in 2011 to ensure the consistency and accuracy of international judging as well as to provide an additional level of monitoring at major FEI Dressage Events, including the World Cup, the Pan Am Games, and the Olympics.
He gives regular clinics in England, Spain, and the United States. USDF continues to use many of his training videos for its E-Trak Online Education Series and for their USDF Instructor Certification Required Reading List. His articulate, humorous, kind and classical approach to training horses and riders of all levels is the reason for his continuing popularity as a clinician worldwide.
