Henrik, I have found your simple, down to earth approach to working with horses and students my anchor in my career. It has been an honor the past 14 years to be your student and friend. Thank you for following your dream. —Kathy Y.
Many thanks to Henrik for his constant patience, sensitivity, insight, energy and expertise. And to Ulla for her vision, organizational skills and much more. —Merryl V., instructor
Henrik's theory is completely clear, and I am the kind of learner who needs to have a theoretical basis for what I am doing. I have done quite a bit of reading on classical methods in dressage but have never found such a clear and simple explanation of how to translate the theory into specific riding practice. Henrik's text gives me the specific tools I need to achieve each result and then offers ways to test the results. He constantly reminds us to see things from the horse's point of view, which is so important to remember. After reading the entire book, I can now go to just what I need to know when I have a question. Yesterday I reviewed The Outside Rein and The Aids, which helped me be clearer to the mare and of course she went better as a result. Even though I take weekly lessons with Ulla, I cannot call her every time I have a question. Henrik's text is like having 24/7 tech support for my riding! —Marianna A.
This has been the best, by far, riding/dressage workshop I have attended. I would highly recommend it to anyone. —Holly J.
The clinic was very positive. Henrik is very logical in how he presents his material and how he teaches. —Debbie F., instructor & 1995 PSG Horse of the Year
Not only did I learn a lot, but I finished this clinic feeling inspired and energized. ...Thank you very much for your time and effort. —Glynis S.
I felt comfortable asking questions and trying to answer without feeling scared about being put down. —Linda S., instructor
Henrik teaches you how to be a better instructor, not a method that is 'right' or 'his method.' —Cherie V., instructor
Ulla & Henrik work so well together, each consistent with the other. —Stephanie M.
I appreciate what these clinics are accomplishing. The material they cover and the information they give are invaluable. The way the clinics are structured supports the cohesiveness of all the instructors participating by providing an open environment for learning. —Kim M., instructor
