A better world for horse & rider.
Thanks to our knowledge of animal physiotherapy, anatomy and horse riding, we are able to build bridges between science and equestrianism.
In doing so we achieve a harmonious and respectful co-operation between rider and horse, on all levels ranging from recreational to professional competitive sport. Our mission is beautiful and harmonious horse riding and an ethical approach to the sport.
To achieve harmonious co-operation knowledge of anatomy, kinematics and horse riding are required. As experienced animal physiotherapists and top equestrians we build bridges between these areas of expertise. This knowledge is combined in the Riders Education. In our innovative learning system and casual learning environment we will guide you through the process step by step. You will systematically learn the “how, what and why” of all exercises and gaits with their scientific and theoretical substantiation. This knowledge is backed by IPOS Rein Sensors that give the rider real-life feedback on his or her aids.
Our two year, modular rider education is suited for every rider of every Icelandic horse that wants to develop him- or herself through solid education! The Riders Education is not a professional education, c.q. trainer's or instructor's education. Every course group consists of a mix of riders with different levels of ambition to stimulate co-operation and a mutual learning process.
The basic Riders Education consists of 4 modules spread over 2 years. Two modules per year.
