You and your horse have many abilities. We can help you to develop them to the maximum potential.

Your active participation in the process is necessary for achieving a good result and we give you the tools.

We help you to set goals and give you a system to work with.

The Positive Riding System

The Positive Riding System is the lifelong work of Danish Bereiter Henrik Johansen. This positive approach to training and teaching is based on the theories and philosophies of classical dressage, as well as an understanding of the horse's natural instincts, behaviors and psyche. By studying the horse's natural way of moving, and developing the horse's abilities using a language that the horse understands, we end up with horses who reach their full potential.
