I found your site and have a question for you.. Because I'm busy with a documentary of the "brothers Spyker", I know about Trompenburg and the making of 'Spyker planes and engines!'
I also know that Wijnmalen was president of Trompenburg.... Do you have perhaps pictures of him in a Spyker plane?

Out of Print:
"DRESSAGE is the Art of improving one's horse beyond the stage of plain usefullness. An understanding of its principles is of inestimable value to all riders who wish to improve the performance of their horses in order to add to their enjoyment and success.
     The author explains that the nature of these principles is esssentially very simple. There is, he says, no fundamental difference between the methods employed in handling a new-born foal or in riding a high-school horse. It is only in the application of these methods to work of an ever more exacting nature that the difficulties increase."

Henri died on February 9, 1964 in Twijfford-Berks England.
