Clinic with Jutta Schott

Trisha and Zippy had a terrific first lesson with Jutta Schott.

Jutta Schott was certified as a Reitlehrer FN in Warendorf, Westphalia, Germany in 1981, which authorizes her to train and teach up through the FEI levels. She holds the German Bronze and Silver medals and after teaching a number of years in Germany, moved to Austria where she obtained her Austrian instructor's license and worked for seven years as an assistant head trainer at the barn of Arthur Kottas (Chief Rider of the Spanish Riding School) near Vienna. She presently lives and teaches in Redlands, California, giving clinics not only in California, but also in Montana, Oregon and Nevada.

i googled the net out of fun these days for foals by rohdiamant: you can't find any for sale.

We have 2 Rohdiamont grandsons for sale, Zippy and Ripley.

Why shop for your horse in the USA? (copied from a forum)

At today’s exchange rate:
$50,000 US = 32,338 Euros
$75,000 US = 48,407 Euros

If you are looking at paying 32,000 Euros for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 15,000E – 25,000E, with commissions accounting for the rest. If you are lucky and have very good contacts and a good agent, you could probably find a “decent” 7-8 year old in that price range.

If you are willing to pay 50,000E for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 25,000E – 35,000E. That would get you something a bit fancier, or something with a solid M show record, or something not as experienced but with an AA temperament and still enough talent to make FEI.

... Just remember that importation to NY plus USDA quarantine is running about $7000 now.
