What other trainers say...

The first time I saw Greetje working with her horses, I was in tears. Moved by the collaboration and fusion, which I have dreamed of all my life. I therefore feel very happy that I have been training as an instructor at Greetje's Human&Hors academy for several months now. As part of the training, but can also be purchased separately, her beautiful book is included, filled with passion, vision and the Human and Horse method designed by Greetje. Greetje also has an online education platform. So that everyone, wherever you are, can train with their horse themselves. The videos are indicated per exercise, are well rolled out in small steps and short, making them clear and you can quickly grab them for your training. Especially if you download the app. In the videos Greetje shows her training sessions with different horses. Which allowed me to find the challenges I received with my different type of horse in Greetje's different horses. So when your heart starts beating faster from what you see Greetje and her horses doing, then the platform is highly recommended.

I am very happy that I followed the training at Greetje Arends-Hakvoort and that I am still attending the Master training courses. It has brought me so much in the education and training of my horses and I still haven't graduated 😊. Because I'm not next door, I have a membership on the H&H platform. In addition to the book, the videos are a valuable addition, not only for my own training, but also for teaching my students. Very nice that Greetje Arends-Hakvoort shows all facets with her different horses and thus also the different characters and/or issues in the training: sometimes you have to puzzle a bit to see what works for this specific horse and I see that supported by the instructional videos with different horses(characters). I recommend it! 👌 to strengthen these beautiful animals.

When I saw the trailer - my thoughts were - INCREDIBLE and real performance of my DREAM but not not sure if could be achievable for me... I was so impressed that decided to give it a try 🙂 When I started to watch the videos available on platform - I realized that it is really POSSIBLE to learn, understand and implement!!! The Platform is a brilliant tool for all levels of riders!!!! Clear step by step instruction, amazing quality of videos ... I do believe that tool might help many riders to realize their dreams of connection with horse and achieve high standard level of performance together!!! Dear Greetje! Thank You very much for all the efforts done to make it work this way!!!
