General results and characteristics of the international clinic and multi day workshops:
I teach you to look at your horse with a holistic view.
Educating and training your horse is about balance and straightening. We develop spinal alignment, hull stability and self carriage through balance and straightening. These are essential characteristics for a good foundation.
When your horse experiences balance in its body and movement, it can relax. A relaxed horse is a pleasure to work with and can appeal to his ability to learn much better.
Only a relaxed horse can learn to contract his body in a healthy way. We go for: “A relaxed mind in an energetic body”
All forms of training work towards the same goal in terms of body posture, body coordination and healthy movement pattern.
As a trainer you learn to think and work in a progressive way; from teaching the horse so he understands you – to enable the horse physically – to increase the level and endurance of performance. Everything slowly, gently and gradually! You also learn to take into account where the boundaries of your horse are and how to move those boundaries slowly and gently.
Being a trainer for your horse requires a lot of yourself and as a result you learn a lot ABOUT yourself. My lessons contribute in a positive way to personal development and inner strength.
“Self carriage is not limited to collection.
Self carriage is the natural outcome of a horse properly developed mentally and muscularly.”
