I have always been passionate about horses, – ever since I was a small child, despite parental anxieties.  I was brought up in a musical and artistic household, but horses were always my passion and I always found a way to connect with them somehow. I drew horses obsessively and begged riding lessons, and started riding when I was very young.

“Who am I in my horses eyes” is a phrase I have heard Bent say many times and this is constantly in my thoughts as I train.

Every time we are with our horses, we are educating them, whether we mean to or not.

I am available for private lessons and run 1 day or 2 day weekend clinics at Stonehaven and also away from Stonehaven. Please contact me if you would like to organise one

Feedback from Relaxed Intensive Weekend 

‘Two glorious days spent fully immersed in gaining a better understanding of the biomechanics of how a horse moves and how we can help them to rebalance to carry a rider and for a healthier life in general.   Jacquie’s lectures and explanations were clear and well presented and  being able to work with her own horses on the ground gave me valuable hands-on experience of feel and timing.  The facilities at Stonehaven are perfect.   I came away with more knowledge and so better equipped to train my own horse at home.   Think more intensive than relaxed – there’s masses to take in.   The devil is in the detail and this clinic fed my addiction in spades. ‘

Best wishes – Anna

Wonderful atmosphere, and super learning experience that was horse friendly and kind, yet still effective.
Thoroughly recommend these weekends
Sarah

Such an idyllic place, and beautifully set up for a relaxed but intensive learning experience! Thank you for a lovely enjoyable weekend with horses and calm.

Love and best wishes

*******************************************

Stonehaven has hosted clinics every year throughout the summer months since 2015 with accredited selected Academic Art of Riding by Bent Branderup trainers, including Ylvie Fros, Kathryn Branderup-Tannous, Katrin Wallberg,  Christofer Dahlgren and Monika Sanders.

Covid 19 has made organising clinics with foreign trainers very difficult, but in 2021 Stonehaven orchestrated an online fully interactive clinic with AAoR accredited trainer Bettina Biolik, which was very successful and enjoyable for all participants. 

A Bluetooth speaker and microphone was used which made it possible for all to hear Bettinas tuition suggestions and communicate back to her as she taught each student with an HD  video camera tracking the student for her to view at her home in Poland.  Pretty amazingly good technology.
