Intensive Training Week

Novermber 12 -16th 2018

February 25 - March 1st 2019

What's the idea?

Go to the next level

To significantly increaseyour horsemanship in only 5 days. Teaching you on a platform of multi-disciplines that I strongly believe will make a huge difference in your horsemanship. 

All this in a great atmosphere of the Equestrian Art Academy and of course FUN. 

If you did the ITW last November, you have your spot for this new session, revised, improved and more advanced. 5 amazing and fun days to simply make you a better rider and horsewomen/horseman. 

Private rhythmic lessons, Private Pilates lessons, Private riding lessons, manipulations and releases, more riding time. More focused on classical dressage. Good food, good time. 

For those that haven’t participated in an ITW yet, the November session is reserved for advanced riders. If you feel this is you, sign up as soon as possible as space is limited.

If you don’t feel that you are at an advanced level, the beginner and intermediate session will be held in January – see details below.
