After 6 month period of cold, grey and rainy, snowy, windy weather in the Netherlands, it’s always a great pleasure to feel the temperature rising and to see how nature awakes and how it makes a new start, whether it's in the capital city of Amsterdam or in the countryside!
Also the pastures of my horses are exploding at the moment with lots of delicious grass, cleavers, and dandelions 🌱 ☘️ 🌼. Of course we carefully have to manage that they don’t get an excessive intake of it, because horses love 💚 this 'salad bowl’!
Although young, fresh grass appears to be a nice addition to the regular food, it also brings risks with it.
In May, fourteen (of the eighteen) ST Instructors from six different countries and four continents came to the Straightness Training Instructor clinic in the UK for an amazing and intensive five days of training, learning and growing together.
