Testimionals

Dr. Michael Steinbach (Germany) said: "Dear Marijke, I spent the whole weekend watching your webinars and your videos and reading your e-books. These demonstrations of your art with horses made me just happy and grateful. Having been a rider and owner of horses the greater part of my life (73 yrs) I often wanted to know better what my horse needed and how to give it to him and how to make it a better and healthier and happier horse. And now you showed it to me so clearly and in the same time charmingly that I am just overwhelmed. Keep doing your great work for the horses and the riders and make the world a better place."
Mary Hagleitner (Austria) said: "I am very proud of my horses and they mean an awful lot to me! Therefore I have been looking for a respectfull way to train them! And found this in Marijke`s incredible training program! I made a big step forward!"
Gail Adams (New Zealand) said: "Thank you so much for all the information you make available. I am working through your wonderful Home Study course with my horse and we are both making great progress. My mare Cammie is so happy to work now that she is always waiting for me at the gateand gives me a lovely warm welcome every day.
Her happiness is due to your generosity in sharing your knowledge.
I am absolutely thrilled with my mare Cammie's progress
and will try and send you a before and after photo soon.
She looks like a completely different horse and even competed in her first dressage event two weeks ago. She was a bit tense but scored 60% and the judge gave her some excellent comments about her ability to bend on her circles and how supple she was. Cammie seemed delighted with herself and the organisers of the event gave her a prize for being the most astonishingly improved horse because they know about her sad history and were as excited about her progress as I was."
Jose Dijkstra (Germany) said: "I discovered the straightness training and Marijke de Jong just over a year ago now. Basically since then I have been reading, learning and practising according to this method. At home I am working with an Icelandic horse and he is doing so great! It is fun and so interesting to see his developments. I am so pleased with that (and he seems pleased too). The video's and documents from Marijke helped me a lot, and still do!! I am looking forward to learn more and share our 'adventures' and developments."
Lilly Catharios (Australia) said: "I am so exited to discover this training and Marijke, as I have been doing natural horsemanship for 15 years and my horse has been complaining to me for all that time and I did not understand what was going wrong or what to do. I have one horse and one tiny pony and have started straightness training with both of them. I can see that both horse and pony are much softer and happier since I started this, and I am looking forward to learning more via this course. I'm grateful to see this information in English."
Marisela Gould (USA) said: ""This course has dismembered in a organized, compacted and passionless way the reasons for the riding horse behaviour. It has confirmed that horses don't need to be reprimanded but put back in balance. Thank you Marijke. This information makes me inevitably look in retrospective continuously at those unaccountable horses still in my memory and now I see over and over the reason why one acted this way or another. The course compliments those empty spaces after the why's.
I have, admittedly, to read and watch over and over because as I am
doing it the memory of this or that horse pops up and I immediately
cease reading or listening while entangled in the memory.
This information also reaffirms the correctness of the decisions I
took then and every time: to do nothing about it if I could not
fill the space after why. I became a passive observer. I knew there
was something, but what? Now it is so much clearer now: it's a new
dawn."
Mary Jane Sindorf said: "I'm very thankful that I've found Marijke de Jong on the internet, now I've found a lot of answers were I was looking for and even more. Riding has become a lot more easier and natural.
Heleen Davies (France) said: "The eBook 'Natural Asymmetry
is is one of my favorite E-books written by Marijke.
I see so much more when I look at horses now! The hooves,
the muscles, the tail, there are many clues that will tell you
what the horse will find difficult to do, for instance just lifting up a foot! Horses are in my eyes no longer disobedient or 'bad', they just
need to have some help to be able to carry us. It's really nice to
see that after a while of straightness training the horses are
improving with exercises that are initially hard for them to do on
the stiff side or the less coordinated side."
Roz Richmond (UK) said: "I would like to say how much the ST has improved my horse Bob. I've only been applying ST to Bob since May 2013 when I participated in my first clinic with Marijke. At that time I also joined the ST Home Study Course which I think is absolutely brilliant. It is so well explained and easy to understand. I watch the video's over and over again and each time I learn something new. Bob has got a solid foundation from Parelli and also foundation work that I've learnt from an x Parelli instructor in Texas. Adding the ST work onto this has made a remarkable improvement. Bob and I enjoy showjumping nearly every weekend and during the week I apply the ST work. The balance and self carriage has improved enormously and now Bob and I are getting placed every weekend. His balance through tight turns and his actual shape over a jump is now amazing. He doesn't push through the bridle and when he lands after a jump he is just waiting for me to direct him. It has made such a difference I felt I had to post about it. Thank you so much Marijke for your wonderful training and home study course and thank Rebecca Gilbert for pointing me in this direction. It's the best decision I've ever made. ......................................................
