Horses are the best teachers in the world, if you only listen to what they have to say.
I've trained over a hundred horses and everyone of them has its own personality and character, just like you and me. It is my daily job at http://www.koningsland.nl/en/ to train purebred friesians.
The friesians I work with, are trained on a trust base. I try to make myself clear to them in a way they can understand. The way I achieve that is simple. I just keep it friendly, honest and consistant. It makes the whole training process easy and stressless for both parties.
They learn how to trust their rider in any situation and it keeps them eager to learn. Teaching good groundmanners is a very important part of the whole training process. It makes them easy to handle for the new owner.
If they leave stoeterij koningsland, when they are backed, they have a neat basic dressage training and perfect ground manners.
Ready for a bright future with you!
