Vladimir Seunig, born in Trebnje (germ.: Treffen) in Dolenjska region (Lower Carniola) on 8.8. 1887 to a family of German descent, grew up and for many years lived and trained in Ljubljana. During his time in Ljubljana he was living at Bokalce castle which is nowadays unfortunately in a very bad conditi...on and is falling apart. He was riding his horses at a stadium of Slovenian National Hall and in a riding hall of Kolizej complex in Ljubljana.
He was educated himself at Maria Theresia Military Academy in Vienna, at Spanish Riding School of Vienna and at Care Noir in Saumur. He was one of the last royal stable masters of Europe, for several years serving to Jugoslav king at his stables in Zemono near Belgrade, Serbia. He was also very successful at international competitions. Attended also Olympics in Paris in 1924 where he ranked at 24th place.
Sometime before or during World War II (as far as I know) he left for Germany where he contiued his equestrain career for the rest of his life. Internationally known as Waldemar Seunig he was a respected rider, trainer and international judge. Moreover, he is still one of the best authors of equestrian literature, most famous of his works is an excellent book titled Von der Koppel bis zur Kapriole (Horsemanship). His non equestrian skills include writing short stories and drawing excellent drawings.
He died on Christmas eve of 1976, I believe somewhere in Germany.
