Clinic information

The clinics combine the theory and practice of Straighness Training. I organize two, three or four day events. In a clinic I teach 6-8 participants in individual lessons. It is also possible to join as an observer/theory participant. You can observe the lessons and join the (interactive) theory blocks.
banner demo juli 2013In the (interactive) theory is a selection of the following topics:

  • Physical balance of horse and ridertheorie ST
  • Mental balance of horse and rider
  • Emotional balance of horse and rider
  • Spiritual balance of horse and rider

Some examples of topics are: natural asymmetry; Straightness Training theory; biomechanics; the seat; rider fitness, body awareness, how rider and horse learn; how to deal with fears of rider and horse: how to develop feelings of self-confidence, pride, etc in humans and horses.

Besides lessons in Straightness Training it is also possible to practice horse trailer loading.
