About Straightness Training Events

Seeing Marijke de Jong or a licensed ST Instructor in person is a good way to add extra impetus to your learning and watching lessons allows you to see things develop right in front of your eyes.

The clinic will showcase a range of progression with riders and horses who have worked with Marijke for varying lengths of time.

The clinic provides you a solid basis for doing straightness training with your horse in hand and under saddle.

During the clinics the following training components of straightness training are addressed:

  1. Groundwork
  2. Longeing
  3. Work in hand
  4. Riding
  5. At liberty

You can participate in two ways: as a rider or as a surveyor.

straightness-training-brazil-lecture-2As a rider you will be receiving private tuition with your own horse and participate in the theory lessons. We'll put the theory into practice and we'll address the issues that you bring. After the clinic you'll have the information and confidence you need to continue independently at home.

As a spectator you will be able to watch the riders and you can bring questions about your own horse and get involved with the lectures about straightness training. You are much more of a participant than a spectator on these clinics, with hours of lectures to be inspired by and practical sessions where you see ST with horse and rider combinations being coached through the process. Get your questions answered face to face and see learning challenges become great opportunities that enable you to leave with a toolkit full of fun and ideas.

The intention of a clinic is that everybody goes home with a lot of inspiration and more insight in how to supple and straighten your horse.
