In November 2015 instructor* Carola Beekman will return to your beautiful Western Cape for the 4th time to give YOU hands on coaching in your Straightness Training journey at private stable yards around the Western Cape.
Carola from the 12 till the 17th of November 2015, Carola Beekman will come to your stable yard for intensive training days. To train Horse & Rider in the Art of Straightness Training (developed by Marijke De Jong).
The intensive training days combine the theory and practice of Straightness Training. Carola will teach 4-6 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, body awareness exercises and Q&A. Each rider will have two individual lessons.
The (interactive) theory is a selection of the following topics:
Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance of horse and rider
Some examples of topics are: natural asymmetry; Straightness Training exercises, training pillars; 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. Carola will adapt the theory to each individual intensive training day, tailor made to the questions and level of the participants.
