“Horses do have a voice, learn to listen to your horse”.
My journey with horses started when I was 7, at a riding school in the Netherlands. In 1997 I imigrated to Australia and not long after owned my own horses. I realised that the conventional training was not my thing and here my search started to a more horse friendly and holistic way of training and looking after horses.
I have had and still have guidance of many people when it comes to horses but the following have inspired me the most:
Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling (Compact Schooling 2011)
Carolyn Resnick (Waterhole Rituals + Beyond the Waterhole Rituals clinic + private clinic 2012 – 2015)
Jason Wauters (private coaching 2013 – 2014)
Marijke de Jong (Straightness Training Mastery 2015 – ongoing)
Noora Ehnqvist (clinic and private coaching 2014 – 2015)
Belinda Bolsenbroek (clinics 2015 – 2016)
Jossy Reynvoet (Bitless Art of Riding, Academy and private coaching 2014 – ongoing )
Academic Art of Riding – Bent Branderup (on-line videos, books and clinic 2018 – ongoing)
There are many more people that inspire me and there is hardly a day go by that I don’t have my nose in a book that helps me on my journey with horses.
Bitless Art of Riding – Jossy Reynvoet Instructor since November 2019
No matter how much you read or learn from other tutors, you’ll learn the most from your own horse.
You just have to listen.
