Louis Seeger (1798-1865) was a German equestrian who published several books and was very influential on the development of dressage. Trained under Maximilian Weyrother, his methods were highly influenced by the great de la Gueriniere. Additionally, Seeger passed on this knowledge through his riding school in Berlin, the first privat school in Germany, and his students included Gustav Steinbrecht.
His book System der Reitkunst ("System of the Art of Riding"), published in 1844, received the gold medal. He also published the book Herr Baucher und seine Künste - Ein ernstes Wort an Deutschlands Reiter ("Monsieur Baucher and his Methods") in 1852, criticizing Francois Baucher's training techniques, after he had watched the French rider and was given the chance to ride several of the horses produced by the man.
