Vanda Oosterhuis about Connected Riding
When I met Peggy in 1998 for the first time when I stayed in the USA, I knew that this was a great method. When several years later I had the opportunity to go to Peggy's clinics with in Germany and bring my own horse, I was very happy to learn so many great new things that fitted perfectly to everything I was doing and teaching. I appreciate that you not only focus on the rider or the horse, but you work with both, "connect" them.
I like new input for my riding and teaching and everytime I go to a clinic I learn new things. The focus on the core and and finding better balance, improved my riding greatly. Not only my riding improved, I also have many more "tools" to help and work with my clients.
I especially love because I like doing groundwork and the more possibilities I have to train a horse the better.
