The 2017 May ST Instructor's clinic, with Marijke de Jong, Marc Marsman and 14 ST instructors from around the world, was a totally unique and inspirational 5 days of fabulous learning. Instructors travelled in from all over the world - South Africa, USA, Australia, Holland, Germany and Austria. The 5 UK (trainee) instructors teamed up with 5 visiting instructors and we shared valuable tips - and tops - from each other during lessons and free 'laboratory' sessions with our horses. We all had lessons with the wonderful Marijke de Jong and she brought us fantastic new insights and details to our training.
The 5 horses belonging to the UK instructors were all superb - relaxed, willing and ready to learn and to offer their very best.
I took Marley along and he was a superstar, I am so delighted with his progress. He even showed himself to be a super professor horse.
I compiled some snippets from our videos to show our a little bit of longing and work in hand.
The first winter study group was a really great opportunity for local Straightness Training students to meet up and to take on some theory. 11 super, positive and enthusiast people came along and they created a warm and friendly atmosphere, sharing the process of figuring out the natural asymmetry in their own horses.
So thank you everyone for making the evening such a joy, and I am very much looking forward to the next one!
We have booked the same venue for the next meeting, on 16 February.
