Inspiring, Elegant, Thoughtful

The way dressage was meant to be ridden.

An approach to the art of dressage as a whole and not as a series of recipes the rider can apply to fix the horse. There are no magic techniques or secret pieces of equipment. Just a clear and concise methodology that builds on itself to produce a balanced and happy horse.

 "I wanted to thank you, JJ and the whole team for this wonderful clinic!

The most encouraging aspect for me was how a master can communicate

so clearly the desired ideals for dressage rooted in the classical foundation.


From the theory lectures to all the riding sessions this was the best day

I have spent in years! Thank you for Team Tate Academy and organizing  this excellent learning experience. I have started applying concepts to my

riding and already feeling good changes!

Also love the weekly videos and worksheets!"

About Charles de Kunffy

Get to know our clinician!


2017-10-09 11.15.35.jpg

Charles de Kunffy, a member of the Austro-Hungarian nobility, was born and raised in Hungary. His parents were eminent horse breeders with derby winning racehorses.


Charles started riding as a child, always under expert supervision and instruction. His riding masters were educated during the golden age of equitation between 1900-1945. His teachers were the products of the finest riding institutions of the “inter bellum.”


These included Vienna and Wienerneustadt in Austria, Hannover and Berlin in Germany, Pinerolo and Tordiquinto in Italy, and Hungary’s Orkeny. Pal Kemery, Jeno Kosa-Reznek, Imre Bodo and Geza Hazslinsky-Krull attended these institutions, competed with great successes and mentored Charles for years in an institutional setting.

Cross-country riding, jumping and dressage were melded into one comprehensive system of training, adhering to the classical tradition of riding theory and methodology.

Diversification of activities, riding skills and the ability to improve any horse were emphasized in the academic training program. Charles de Kunffy was schooled with the strictest adherence to classical training traditions based on scholarship and a profound respect for the horse.


He represents the unbroken heritage of classical horsemanship handed down from generation to generation without compromise.
