History of LZ

It goes without saying that we wish to promote Western riding and the western horse here in Europe.  Lorenz Zilch has been involved in the sport since the first western riding shows began taking place in Europe some 20 years ago.   A lot has changed since those days! 

Lorenz is European and European Vice Champion, German and German Vice Champion, Bavarian and Bavarian Vice Champion. He has been All-Around Champion many times, and he is EWU (Erste Westernreiter Union) Champion and honorable member of the EWU.  He is a professional Western Trainer for All-Around Horses since 1992.


Sandra Zilch, the other half of LZ-Westerntraining, is a graduated geographer. She always had great interest in dogs and horses. Therefore it was no difficult decision for her to join Lorenz´ business. Besides managing all the other things that have to be done, she is responsible for the Australian Shepherds that are bred to work sheep and cattle.


Lorenz has trained the European Champion All Around 2006 (European Championship for Sportsarabians 2006), Martina Aulbach and her horse Cascaya.  Read more about their successes at the site www.western-arabians.de
