The essential joy of being with horses
is that it brings us in contact with
the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

Dear horsefriend, welcome to our website!
Welcome to the fascinating world of horses and harmonious, bit-less riding!
We are successful bookauthors and internationally renowned horsemanship trainers. Since 1998, we promote and teach non-violent methods of horse training. Be it with your own horse, or with one of our own well-trained school horses, our extensive knowledge and skills in training and educating horses allow us to confidently help you with deepening your practice.
Do you need support with training or stretching your horse or would you like to learn how to ride bit-less? If so, give us a call. We welcome riders of any level and riding style. We also cater for non-riders who would like to get introduced to the world of horses, people who are keen on learning the language of these sensitive animals or those who just want to learn to ride. We also offer private clinics at your stable. 
Come and join us in creating a better world, with no violence, for both horses and humans!
If you have any questions about clinics in the USA, UK or other countries, write us an email
