What other trainers say...

Hello everyone, my name is Sabine Luttik and I also started the instructor training "Human & orse" from Greetje Arends-Hakvoort 2 years ago. Apart from the beautiful development that I have experienced for myself and my horses, you also come to an environment where you feel detached from everything that is happening outside the terrain. You are really detached from everything and you find yourself in a positive atmosphere, which promotes learning from this beautiful, pleasant and sustainable form of training. During our education Greetje launched her beautiful self-written study book, it was really too beautiful for words. The online platform has recently also been added and I am really blown away by how this has been set up again. This again shows the passion and love for the horse and you are completely absorbed in the pleasant atmosphere. What I also find valuable is that because of the different levels and breeds of the horses used, you can also see what you can run into with your own horse at home and what you can do to figure this out. This platform is a gift for you and your horse!

Almost 3 years ago my horse Zodiac and I started with our education at the Human and Horse academy. This was the best decision I've made for the both of us. We've learned so much and really are more connected than ever. 🤓During the classes with Greetje there's a really positive vibe and she makes you feel comfortable, therefore you and your horse can be at it best. 📙Besides the classes we also use a studybook wich is on it's own more a peace of art! The book is very pleasing to read this is improved by the fact that there are a lot of helpfull pictures in it. I use the book a lot if I want to study for example some particular things about the education or the physique of my horse. 📱Now there is also the platform which I use. Watching the videos of Greetje with her different kind of horses is very interesting. The videos are a good example of what you and your horse can learn together. I start by watching some videos about a certain topic and then I take my phone with me while I am training my horse so I can put theory intro practice! ☺️ We have finished our study at the academy last year but we are still connected with The Human an Horse Academy by following the masterclasses. Over the years we have learned so much and we have grown a lot. I know for sure I am a better friend and trainer for my horse and therefore a better trainer for my own students! t these beautiful animals too fresh

If you have the chance to follow this great education... Do it! ☀️ Both the Online Platform and the 10-day training at Greetje & Arien & Jolie on location are definitely recommended. You can be who you are, your horse can be who he / she is, no judgments, there is no such thing as a mistake.. Step by step at your own pace, you get closer and closer to each other and then you feel that overwhelming feeling of connection again and again! Woww 🙏🏼 That feeling gives you so much love and happiness! 🥰🍀 Everyone needs their own time. And if you have stopped for a moment for whatever reason? Not bad at all, because you can always start again where you left off. Greetje is pure and neutral. A beautiful, sweet, attentive and positive woman who takes you and your horse into her passion how it could be otherwise. 🥰 So cool! This training is very clear and above all understandable, from which I and my horses have learned so much and are still allowed to do so. It's so nice when the basis is there and you can always fall back on it.
