In 1993 Katja Lange completed her apprenticeship to graduate as a Master in Equine Husbandry with Distinction, winning the Oskar-Maria Stensbeck plaque. She has been working successfully since 1996 as an independent trainer and coach for dressage horses in various stables all the way to Grand Prix levels, winning top classes in Germany, Luxembourg and in the USA.
For 10 years from 2000-2010, Katja worked together with her husband Stefan to run their own training facility „Auf der Wintermuehle“. In 2011 they moved to the Kronenhof in Langen (just outside of Frankfurt, Germany), where she has been running her company „Dressurreiten(er)leben“ (Experience Dressage) since 2013.
She has continued her professional development in business, marketing, and logistics specifically for equine related businesses since then, and received her certification as an Equine Ergonomist in 2012 and as a Saddle Ergonomist in 2013. She works together with Saddlefit 4 Life® in Germany to train other potential ergonomists in various courses.
