Egon von Neindorff (November 1, 1923, Döbeln, Saxony – May 19, 2004) had a Riding Institution at Karlsruhe, Germany, where he trained horses and taught dressage. He was a world famous teacher and his methods are the standard for the German School. One of his famous students is Erik Herbermann, author of the Dressage Formula.[1] Von Neindorff was author of a book, The Art of Classical Horsemanship.

Von Neindorff first learned the art of riding from his father, and later from Felix Bürkner, Richard Wätjen, Ludwig Zeiner, Otto Lörke and also Alois Podhajsky. Von Neindorff founded the first riding school to be established after World War II, initially concentrating on jousting. In 1949 he moved his school to Karlsruhe, where he remained until his death. He was awarded the Bundesverdienstkreuz and the German Rider Cross in Gold. The Reitinstitut Egon von Neindorff-Stiftung (Riding Institute Egon von Neindorff-Foundation) continues his teachings.
