In July my horse Romanesque and I went to Greetje Hakvoort to do some 'cow herding' and 'cow cutting' together.
'Cow herding' is bringing the cattle from one place to another. 'Cow cutting' is separating one or two cows from the herd and to keep them separate for a while. It's great to use dressage and riding maneuvers for a real purpose:

In August my horse Romanesque and I participated in the Level 4 and Beyond Clinic with Pat Parelli in Belgium! During this clinic we did cow herding and cow cutting.
WOW!!! The Straightness Training Live Event 2014 was F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C.!
In August 2014 about 70 amazing ST Mastery Students from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, US and the UK brought there fantastic vibes to the event and we had an awesome time together!!
I did some training sessions with Prince Elmelund and Romanesque in all 5 pillars of groundwork, work in hand, longeing, riding and liberty. There were some excellent lessons with students and their own horses and several lucky students won the opportunity to have a lesson with Prince Elmelund and Romanesque. A brilliant demo by Noora Ehnqvist about body awareness and a hugely entertaining and valuable demo by Rupert Issacson from the Horse Boy Method!

A delegation of the Military Mounted Police of the state Espírito Santo was present during the second Straightness Training clinic in Brazil. The day after the clinic, I gave some private lessons to Dr. João Luiz Leite Pacheco, veterinarian and major of the Military Mounted Políce of the state of Espírito Santo, and it was so great to see his natural feeling for horses and he very easily and quickly could integrate the concepts of Straightness Training.
Thereafter, Major Pacheco invited us, Victor Gueiros Freire (the organizer of the clinic), Marc and I, to visit the Regiment of the state Espírito Santo, led by General Commander of the Military Police , Colonel Edmilson dos Santos.
