The basics are the same because all horses are fundamentally identical.

The natural aids (voice, seat, legs
and hands via the reins) may be combined in ways dependent upon
your abilities and your mount's capabilities, and are traditionally
referred to as
"the language of the aids".

Christine Wolfe was fortunate to have learned from French
officers who had served in the North African non-mechanized cavalry. Her instructors were not world famous but their riding heritage was solidly grounded by their need to be good horsemen in order to stay alive. She also had instructors who studied
at the Ecole Militaire de Paris, an equestrian school created
in 1751 by Louis XV of France.

Her gods of equitation include Francois Robichon de la Gueriniere (1688-1751), father of classical French equitation; Colonel Alois Podhajski (1898-1973), former director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna; Janou Lefebvre-Tissot (1945-), who represented France
in the 1964, 1968 and 1972 Olympics; and ex-jockey Andre Sagaud, now unknown trainer of Olympic great Nelson Pessoa of Brazil
& his fabulous horse Gran Geste.

From 1991 through 2012, Tschuess, an energetic purebred Eastern-type Trakehner, ruled her life. Tschuess was unique
and irreplaceable. 

Christine still rides & her current mount and she trust each other, but the relationship is quite different.
