What people say about us:
Significant improvement in a very short period of time
Really enjoying the hard work, enthusiasm and commitment Anne puts into training us. We have seen a significant improvement in a very short period of time, and not through ‘tricks’ or ’quick fixes’, but purely by being instructed on how to ride my horse correctly so the results are the building blocks for the correct foundation to continue up the levels.
Gives me a lot of confidence
I’m Hebe from Taiwan and I had four lessons from Carlijn this winter vacation. First, I want to thank Carlijn. She gave lessons from early in the morning to late at night and she was still enthusiastic about every rider. I haven’t ride horses for about 5 months but I still went to Carlijn’s lessons. I’m glad to see I didn’t forget how to ride. Carlijn’s lessons have good structure, she teaches step by step so there is no need to worry. She gave me a lot of confidence in horse riding which makes me know that I can do even more in dressage. When riding she also taught me some theories and techniques in dressage. In these lessons I improved a lot. I am looking forward to another chance to learn from Carlijn.
Focus on both horse and rider
Thank you so much for the 2 day clinic Jaap. It was so much fun, Duende and I had a great time! I really love how you focus on both horse and rider and worked on our needs. Can’t wait until the next one! Big hug Tracy xx
Composed, positive and extremely knowledgeable
Very refreshing way of training! I have the honers of training with Anne and she has been able to develop myself and my horse with such a positive mindset! She is very composed, positive and extremely knowledgeable. Amazing in her explanation! Can’t wait to continue our trainings.
Amazing kids program
Nicole took part in ESI horse camp this summer in Holland. She had a great week. Every day she had lessons imparte by Anne or Carlijn, both excellent teachers. Also every day she went riding with the other girls of her course and a teacher outside in the fields and woods. This was a great experience for her as she can never do that in the city we live in, Mexico City Also she learned a great deal about horses in general, their body, their health, what to feed them, how to know when they are stressed, how to care for them. There were a lot horse related activities and outings and fun classes like the typical Dutch chair dance with horses. Nicole enjoyed this very much and this activity in particular gives a lot of agility getting off and on the horse. It was a wonderful week for Nicole, Nicole improved her riding and had a lot of fun. She definitely would like to participate again!
Great knowledge and aftercare
During my time in Mexico I have worked with ESI trainers Anne and Jaap. The best thing about Jaap is that he has a great positive energy and has a lot of knowledge. Jaap tells my how, why and why not I have to do things. After a lesson things are clear and make sence to me. I was training for a competiotion, and still after the lessons he motivated me and texted me how it was going and gave me tips how to make my horse stronger and more flexible. I really appreciated that. With Anne I worked with different horses, every lesson is different and I learn something new. Anne has a great eye for details, but those little details are crucial! Besides a lot knowledge about horse riding, she has a good eye for the rider. She knows whats going on in the head of a rider and how to encourage riders. And for me, that is one of the most valuable things during a lesson.
ESI clinics were a really great experience for me. The teachers are amazing and the theory learnt on the classes were crucial to understand some tiny situations that were happening to me and my horse. I would definitely recommend this clinic because it’s really approachable in the manner of money, you learn so many things that can be applied wherever you ride and you get to understand the different situations where your horse can be and how to treat them. Do not loose your time and give yourself a chance to experience the most amazing thing in life.
