Discover the home study

The Human & Horse home study offers a unique all-in concept, where everyone has the opportunity to teach their horse with love and pleasure. Each person will begin by receiving an in-depth, printed "coffee table" book in their preferred language. The videos on the platform provide the opportunity to master the theory. Horse lovers of all levels can get acquainted with the exercises, but above all learn to “feel”. Young or old, small horses or big horses, everyone is welcome to have fun, love and train with your horse. In the study guide you will also find questions about the app and platform.

The Human & Horse Home Study is structured as follows:
Chapter 1: Working in harmony with your horse
Chapter 2: Horses and Humans
Chapter 3: Every movement is special
Chapter 4: One step at a time
Chapter 5: Human & Horse Care
Chapter 6: Groundwork, a foundation to fall back on
Chapter 7: Lunging, contact from a distance
Chapter 8: Work in Hand: becoming one with your horse
Chapter 9: Riding: lightness and balance
Chapter 10: Freedom and Control (including neckrope)
* The platform also provides advanced exercises, interviews and gives you a look behind the scenes.    Do you choose a deeper connection with your horse?

How does it work?

You will receive access to all videos

It always starts with a dream. Every horse is at its best when it shows itself, as if it were performing a dance, with expression, balance, harmony and ease. Enjoy working with your horse. For me, the videos are the end result of years of loving training of my horses. We can eventually train and ride our horses with almost invisible communication. I would like to inspire you and teach you how to achieve such a transformation and connection. For every horse and pony, for every level.

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 basics to sophisticated exercises, making it suitable for everyone. The book is also super fine, clearly written and a really nice addition. What I also think is a big plus is the app, so you can easily watch the videos at the stable if you have missed something. I started it because I want 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 wonderful online platform to gain a better understanding of the correct and harmonious training of horses and to strengthen the bond with these beautiful animals.
