Thank you to Straightness Training certified Instructor Kim Steutel from Amsterdam for being the first ST clinician to our area. Every horse had 2 shorter sessions daily, to work on the ST program pillars: Groundwork with a cavesson and one line; In Hand, uses 2-reins, cavesson and/or bridle; some Riding -in Cavesson and/or bridle, with bareback pad to feel the movements of the horse better, and we introduced ST Liberty tasks by the last session.
Thanks to the Participants who travelled from 4-5-7hrs from North and South to take part in the workshop! this event was filled with a 3-horse wait list in 48 hrs, then auditor limit stretched, but we still had to cap it 2 weeks prior

6yo Dutch-CWb mare Sephora with her owner Gillian survived 6mos of Dressage Bootcamp , including No Stirrups and jump-lessons…with us…before heading out to the HJ shows, also getting some top ribbons in the flat classes.
Here are some words from Gillian about her experience training with us: “I am a jumper, and have brought 2 very challenging and (favorite!) young horses to Marcy, for her unique and very effective approach to training horses. Where she differs from other young horse trainers is her ability to also Coach:
…as a Jumper, my understanding of how to use my Core was so vague. People (even my family) would not recognize how I ride and sit in the saddle anymore- I am finally effective, and in harmony with the movement of my horse. Marcy broke down the elements of an effective seat, so my signals could be clear to my sensitive young mare.
With new confidence in my flat-work, Marcy geared her Seat work towards control and balance in my jump-seat, until I was ready to go specialize in show Jumping full-time. I highly recommend Marcy and her amazing facility, which takes into account the psychology of a properly socialized horse, the science of proper nutrition for performance horses, and genuine care of the these amazing animals we love.“
