Greetje Hakvoort

A warm welcome to the Human & Horse Academy! I am Greetje Hakvoort and as long as I can remember, my life has been all about horses. Whether you want to become an instructor, are already an instructor or have a hobby with horses, my goal is to make horse training easy for everyone. The basis of this simplicity lies in good communication between you and your horse. Together with our team, I ensure that your horse really understands what you ask of him. At the Academy we invite you to this transformation: of your horse, but certainly also yours! Whatever your level, the Human & Horse trainers will take you and your horse to a higher level. And ensure that you can continue independently. The training courses at Human & Horse are easy and enjoyable.

What other trainers say...

The home study contains incredibly interesting and extensive information that you can use a lot and can use with your horse from basic things to complicated ones, making it suitable for everyone. The book is also super nice, clearly written and a really nice addition. What I also think is a big plus is the app, so you can easily see the videos at the stable if you have forgotten something. I started it because I wanted to get more out of myself and my horses and I really want to do the training in the future! The way of working with horses is so nice, correct and harmonious. Highly recommended for anyone who is in doubt, you won't regret it!

2 years ago I started the Human & Horse course of Greetje Hakvoort. What a wonderful journey this has been for me personally as a person and as an instructor. My horses and I have both grown enormously! We have totally found ourselves in this great way of training with respect for humans and animals! We are finding more and more depth and even after completing the course I will remain connected to the Human & Horse Academy by following Master training courses so that I can continue to develop in training humans and horses. I recommend everyone to follow this training and / or the beautiful online platform to gain a better understanding of the correct and harmonious training of horses and to strengthen the bond with these beautiful animals 🦄
