Brand New From Marijke de Jong

Think Big, Start Small   

How to Get Started With Straightness Training

Whether you're an enthusiastic beginner, or an ambitious advanced rider...

From: Marijke de Jong

Lisbon, Portugal - 12 July 2018

Dear friend,

You're here for a reason:

Perhaps you're experiencing a gap between where you are right now - and where you want to be...

Because you'd love to have this blissful 'centaur' connection with your horse...

Where two become one...

And can do amazing things together!

But Perhaps You Have A 'Difficult' Horse...

It may be that you have a very crooked horse that is difficult to turn, or heavy on the reins, and therefore not easy to ride.

Or perhaps you have a horse that is a bit bossy, pushy, grumpy or nipping, biting and grabbing the reins all the time.

Or you have a horse that is spooky, jumpy, nervy, and easily upset and stressed about the tiniest thing.

And this could be holding your horse back from making progress and enjoying the work.

It probably makes you struggle to get your horse on the same page as you...

However, Perhaps It's Not Your Horse, But It's You...

Perhaps you're experiencing a bit lack of confidence...

Not being certain about where to start or what to do next...

Or when to move on to the next stage.

Perhaps you feel a bit worried about doing it 'wrong'.

Or you maybe not knowing how to get of your plateau and breakthrough to the next level.

And You Don't Have Access To An Expert To Help You Out...

So you're feeling a mix of confusion and frustration, because you haven't yet figured out how to turn things around.

And you can't find a way out of your problems... 

If you strongly believe that it shouldn't have to be this way...

That there has to be a way out!

That you and your horse are meant for much more than this!

That there's something big out there waiting for you, then...

Your Thoughts Are Spot On!

Your feelings are on point!

You've barely scratched the surface of what you and your horse can achieve, and you know it. 

But my guess is since you're reading this, you're ready to change all that. 

Whether you're a novice rider, an ambitious leisure rider, a professional horse trainer, or a riding instructor...

Whoever you are and whatever you do, there's one thing that's certain:

You, too, can experience the satisfaction and emotional bliss that comes from having a flourishing relationship with your horse!

Bringing out the magnificent giant your horse can be!

I Know This Firsthand... 

After having some very complicated horses myself and after years of teaching other riders, I can honestly say that developing a horse's well being in body, mind, heart, and soul to its full potential - is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding adventures you can experience in this lifetime. 

I also believe that the horse world will improve immensely when more horses are developed - not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually - by people like you.

People who put the well-being of the horse first.

Which Is Why I'd Love You To Join My Brand New Entry Course!

This new course - which is part of my ST Academy - will help you to fast-track your growth, achieve extraordinary results with ordinary horses, and save you years of trial and error and unnecessary suffering!

With this low-threshold course, you can easily take the first step in closing the gap between where you are today and where you want to be!

This uncomplicated system of training that is outlined in this course is based on what our horses need, and it's also fun and interesting for the human:

Whether you are a novice rider, or a professional rider, or a rider who's facing challenges, getting stuck on a plateau, or just ready to move on to the next stage.

The brand-new ST Mastery Entry Course can help and might be the direction to go for you right now!

The reason why will be fully explained in this important letter...

But First, A Warning:

Before we go further, let me make something clear.

The ST Academy and the Entry course will work GREAT for any kind of rider, and I believe it can help you too!

Even though this brand new Entry Course has been wonderfully designed to help you master the Straightness Training principles in a structured way as easily as possible, it still requires some dedication and persistent effort on your part.

At the end of the day, YOU are the only person who can make a difference for your horse, not me, not a book, not a set of ‘how to’ videos, not a spot in the ST Academy, not a brand new course…. so I’m not about to insult your intelligence by telling you this new Entry Course will do the magic for you. 


If you’re seriously interested in helping your horse and willing to take some action and put some effort in, then this will be of interest to you!

So let me jump right in and show you…

Exactly What You’re Getting

With the Mastery Entry Course you will ‘enter’ the ST Academy as a Mastery student:

As already said, the full Mastery Program covers the entire elephant, so the five training pillars groundwork, longeing, work in hand, riding, and liberty.

But the Entry Course zooms 100% in on the groundwork pillar.

So with this course, you’ll immediately get the entire groundwork methodology that all Mastery students use to create a solid foundation when it comes to gymnastic exercises.

And this firm base will set you up for success in all the other training pillars.

Plus, to make things easy for you, we have broken down the Mastery Entry Course into seven core training sections with supporting video content and complementary manuals.

And they are all designed to share with you how to teach the basic and advanced groundwork exercises to your horse...

In an easy to understand way... 

Whatever your language...

With a little knowledge of English, you can do the course...

Wherever you are in the world!

It’s MORE Than Just An Introduction To Groundwork

The Entry Course explains ALL groundwork exercises, from basic to advanced - from the circle and laterals to the pirouette, so you'll know exactly how to teach your horse these exercises.

All 'how-to' materials about the exercises are easy to understand, and more importantly, easy to put to use right away!

Plus, you’ll be combining all exercises in a sequence, which will increase your horse’s, symmetry, mobility, and strength even more.

As I said, there’s more to this course: I’ll give you the complete graduated structure, so you'll be following a series of lessons and in every lesson I'll give you all details, I’ve left nothing out.

So I’ll not only show you what to do and how to do it right, but I also teach you how to avoid pitfalls.

And I’ll present many ideas for dealing with special and difficult situations, and I’ll recommend many solutions so you can overcome the challenges you face along the way.

All well-structured and graduated course lessons - including downloadable videos, manuals, ebooks and more - are within your online Mastery portal. Everything is online. No travel required.

The course gives you simple, easy to use and proven strategies and tactics to help you not only develop your basic and advanced groundwork, but also grow the relationship and strengthen the bond between you and your horse.

But it gets better because you’re also getting…

Bonus #1: Live Consult With Marijke de Jong - Value 97 euro

And this can make a big difference for you and your horse, especially if you have the feeling that you're the only one doing ST or when there's no expert around to help you out if you're in trouble.

So you and I will meet live in a video conference, which is called a 'Mastermind session'.

And you can ask me all the questions you have about your personal situation:

  • You can discuss a challenge you encounter.
  • You can ask about something that needs to be cleared up for you.
  • You can ask for help if you can't figure things out in a certain exercise.

Instantly you receive help from me, I'll give you ideas and suggestions on how to deal with your specific issues and how to solve them.

So here’s where the Entry course differs significantly from the Home Study Course: it’s this personal coaching aspect.

With the Entry course, you’re not alone, I'm right behind you, you can ask me anything you want during the live consult.

You will also meet fellow Mastery students and ST Instructors, so these sessions will give you an invaluable blast of energy and motivation and your growing will be even more effective.

And being in the live mastermind session will truly give you a 'Master Mind': you can't help but think bigger and stretch beyond your boundaries when surrounded by amazing people!

And to help you improve and grow even more, here’s another bonus I would like to give you…

Bonus #2: Access To ST Evaluation- Value 297 euro

The best part of this bonus is that you'll be able to view other students, all over the world, who are doing the EXACT same groundwork exercises with their horses!

Through the ST Evaluation Program, you'll have access to a lesson library with hundreds of videos with different students and their horses doing groundwork.

Plus, each video is accompanied by an evaluation form, which includes many tips and valuable suggestions from an ST Evaluator on how to improve the series of groundwork exercises.

And you can learn LOADS from that! So your horse will benefit from that too!

That’s why I’ve spent years developing the ST Evaluation System I’ll be giving you, free, in addition to the ST Entry Course. 

And of course, my team of ST Evaluators and I would love to help YOU with your groundwork too.

Because in order to help you personally, we need to get to know you and your horse.

That's why you receive a free video lesson, so we can be spot on and help you tweak your work with the important 2mms:

Bonus #3: Personal Feedback On Your Video - Value 67 euro

The main reason why we give you a free video lesson - called a Touchstone - is the following:

Having purchased the Entry course is a good thing, and reading and watching the materials is wonderful too, but actually DOING something with it is what matters most to me!

And especially if you want to know what you do well and what you need to improve, doing a video lesson is essential and indispensable.

Often - especially when you're the only one doing ST groundwork - the biggest challenge is lack of feedback; if you've got nobody to check whether what you're doing is going into the right direction or not.

Of course your horses do give you proper feedback, but nevertheless you might taking paths that turn out later on as not so good.

Moreover, its very often the little details that do matter and that we're simply not aware of or find out too late.

Afterwards its mostly clear what went wrong, but in advance it's very hard to catch the important details.

So it's important to get valuable tips, and advice on your groundwork from an ST Evaluator, and with this feedback you can tweak your work to create the best possible training habits and skills.  

And this sets you up for a long-term solid fundament with your horse.

So you're right...

That's a lot of effective ways to keep you on track and avoid cracks!

Now, as attractive as this course is, not all ST enthusiasts will become a Mastery Student.

Although that’s okay with me from a 'business' standpoint, it still bothers me personally.

You see, I know how much Mastery students and their horses benefit from our program.

I read their emails, I talk to them during live webinars, I see them personally on one of my clinics, and hundreds each year tell me that the Mastery Program not only change their way of training horses, but that "it changed my whole life”.

Just listen to these Mastery Students from South Africa, Canada and the USA:

And just recently, I got this message in a survey:

"Can I give you a BIG compliment as your ST program is absolutely awesome, so well thought through, so complete, so clever and incredibly stimulating!"

And because of this, I just can’t stand the thought of someone not getting this course due to some error or omission in my explanation.

But thanks to the survey, I could figure out why you might say “no” to our no-risk offer, so here are the possible reasons and questions: 

FAQ #1. Will this work for me? Does this course suit me?

Yes, whether you're a novice rider, starting from scratch...

Or an ambitious leisure rider, but not a dressage person...

Or a professional horse trainer, or riding instructor...

This course will help you to fast-track your growth, achieve extraordinary results with ordinary horses, and save you years of trial and error and unnecessary suffering!

We think BIG, but start small, so in case the following questions pop up in your mind...

FAQ #2. Why is only groundwork covered in the entry course?

Groundwork is like the footings under a house.

Most of the time, we take footings for granted, but even 2mm of uneven setting is enough to cause cracks in masonry, tile, cement or plaster.

The same with horses:

Even 2mm off track in groundwork is enough
to cause cracks in longeing, work in hand, riding or liberty!

That’s why groundwork matters most!

And if you think there's a problem ahead in the other training pillars, just return to groundwork and kill the monster when it’s little ;-)


  • Without a good lateral bending, forward down tendency and stepping under (LFS) close to you, you'll never get a proper LFS on the bigger circle in longeing.
  • Without a nice yielding on the inside rein in groundwork, your horse won't give you the bend, then you'll never get your horse searching towards the outside rein in work in hand.
  • Without a proper preparation in groundwork, longeing and work in hand, chances are, that you'll have to deal with too much imbalance whilst riding.
  • Of course, liberty is a great place to start, but we're talking about ST at liberty here, so we want to do the lateral movements, piaffe and pirouette at liberty, therefore it might take a lot more development time if you don't shape the quality in groundwork first.

That’s why groundwork is the most fundamental and most crucial training component and we'd love to help you master it!

But here's something else that now might start to worry you....

FAQ #3. When I start doing the Entry Course, do I need to quit riding?

Well, don't worry, you don't have to stop riding your horse while you are learning Straightness Training (ST).

So you can use it alongside your usual riding and training activities.

Straightness Training - and especially groundwork - is really a wonderful ‘ADD-ON’ method and you definitely don't need to give up the other training pillars and you don't need to give up what you love!

We say: ST is for the horse, the horse is not for ST.

That means ST is not a goal on itself, it's a mean to an end.

It means, that we use Straightness Training to help the horse to do his 'job' properly and in the most healthy way!

Because if you have a straightened and balanced horse, you can do whatever you like:

Longeing, liberty, hacking out, jumping, crossing, racing, dressage, it doesn't matter.

A horse that is in balance can do the job with ease, no matter what training pillar or equestrian discipline.

And after a while, you'll start to experience that all the other riding pillars go much better, smoother, easier thanks to your solid groundwork.

Now to make a profound descision, it could be that you have the following question on your mind...

FAQ #4. What's the exact similarities and difference between the Mastery Entry Course and the Full Mastery Program?

The main similarities and differences are outlined in the diagram below, where you can see them at a glance:

If you want to optimize your skills and maximise your horse's potential in all five training pillars, the Full Mastery Program is the place to be.

However, the Entry Course is meant to lower the threshold to enter the ST Academy when it comes to time and funds.

And it will help you teach your horse all basic and advanced exercises in groundwork and you receive personal coaching and feedback along the way.

This way we’d like to help you to create a solid fundament and good habits on the level of grade 1 and 2.

It's all about setting you and your horse up for success in all the other training pillars.

Now, when the special offer to join the ST Mastery Entry Course with the discount and extra six bonuses sounds too good to be true, you might think...

FAQ #5. What's the difference with other online programs?

Good question, and just recently, I received this question:

“Does your program really does not help just people with years and years of horse training experience, but also a quite ordinary, horse in the garden type ladies and gents?

That we too actually can get this to work...if we put our minds to it?

There are many of us out there, you see, who watch things like this, even sign up, and by the end of the day...well, it is just another thing that will not really work, because one cannot get one’s head around it.

Full of good intentions... but it does not work, even when you try.

Been there, done that....”

The answer is...

The ST Academy and the Entry course will work GREAT for ANY kind of rider and I believe it can help you too!

But, as I already made clear in the warning on top of this page:

Even though this brand new Entry Course has been wonderfully designed to help you master the Straightness Training principles in a structured way as easily as possible...

It still requires some dedication and persistent effort on your part.

At the end of the day, YOU are the only person who can make a difference for your horse, not me, not a book, not a set of ‘how to’ videos, not a spot in the ST Academy, not a brand new course….

So I’m not about to insult your intelligence by telling you this new Entry Course will do the magic for you.


If you’re seriously interested in helping your horse and willing to take some action and put some effort in, then this course will work!

Also for novice and one-horse riders...

Whether they are in their 20', 30's, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s or even 70’s or 80’s (our oldest ST student is 83 years old!).

It works for riders who are still struggling, at some level…

It's for people with 'ordinary' horses would need something like this course...

But are a bit fed up with online promises.

We do know riders need help with what they are struggling with...

Or what their horses are struggling with.

So that's why we created this course!

And how are you going to know if this course will work... until you try?

That’s why you should come on board today – risk FREE!

Since I am so positive that you’ll benefit from taking this course, I will give you a...

100% Money Back Guarantee!

So here’s what I want you to do:

• Go ahead, get access to this course.

• Then test it out for a solid week, just take the lessons, watch the videos, download everything you can.

• And look, if it’s not for you, pay nothing, I give you an immediate refund.

• No questions asked.

• So you can cancel within 7 days and get a full refund.

This extreme and 100% satisfaction guarantee is my way of making safe that you won’t be disappointed, and that there is ABSOLUTELY NO risk involved on your side.

And don't worry about the word 'Mastery', especially if you ask yourself...

FAQ #6. Is becoming a Mastery Student automatically a path to becoming an instructor?

I know some of you think, you should only jump into Mastery if your interested in becoming an instructor.

Of course, if you would like to become an ST Instructor, Mastery is mandatory.

But Mastery is also perfectly suitable for you if you are completely happy to work on your own progress and that of your own horse.

So if you're not interested in teaching, you don't have to teach!

If you have no aspirations in that direction, you are very welcome to school yourself into a horse trainer expert with the help of the Mastery Entry Course and the Evaluation program.

To be clear: you don't even have to continue with the full Mastery Program or ST Instructor Program if you don't want to.

The full Mastery program is a stepping stone to the instructor program.

But it’s not a step that you have to take.

The full Mastery Program exists on its own even if you never become an instructor.

My only hope, for now, is that you'll love this Mastery Entry Course and that this course will be a valuable next step on your personal path to Mastery!

Now at this stage, the following question might pop up:

FAQ #7. I know that if I commit fully and apply what I learn, I'll get tremendous value. That said, how much time do I need to set aside each week?

Well, if you plan to work through the Entry Course, we recommend between 2-3 hours per week to watch the training and - if you'd like - engage with the community.

Many of our students go through the program as best they can, they pause and return to it as their schedule allows.

Besides this, we recommend that you train your horse 3-5 times a week.

Yet, if you're not able to carve out that much time at first, don't worry:

You get lifetime access to the course and can easily work at your own pace, on your own schedule.

And perhaps good for you to know:

Most of our students have full-time jobs and kids and families.

So yes, this experience is designed to stretch you, but it can also be customized to your life. 

Of course, the more focus and dedication you put into Mastery, the more you'll get out of it.

To be clear, there are no short cuts and the results depend on your commitment. 

Training your horse so that it makes a difference for your horse is not a 6-week or 6-month, linear event.

This course mirrors the reality of horsemanship - it's intense, time-consuming, demanding and something you'll work on for the life of your horse.

But it's worth it!

And it can become addictive!

So at one moment in time, you might ask yourself...

FAQ #8. What's next? After completing the Entry Course, can I continue with the entire Mastery Program or with individual training modules?

Yes, after completing this course you'll be able to continue with the full Mastery Program to continue with longeing, work in hand, riding, and liberty.

And once you do, you'll get a full refund on the Mastery Entry Course.

To be more precise:

You get a full refund of the EXACT amount of money you paid for the ST Mastery Entry Course, right after we received your final payment for the full program.

For example:

  • If you pay in 1 payment for the full Mastery Program, you immediately get a full refund for the payment(s) you did for the Entry Course.
  • If you choose to pay in 12 payments, you'll get a full refund once we received your 12th payment for the full program.  

This way you are guaranteed that you won't pay more money than if you would have enrolled in the full Mastery Program right away.

Now about individual training modules:

We have been seriously considering this modular option, but here's the thing:

When you look for example at the exercise haunches-in:

You can only develop this exercise to its fullest potential if you do this exercise AND in groundwork AND on the longe line AND in hand AND under saddle AND at liberty.

Because all training pillars give an exclusive quality and a unique dimension to each exercise...

And besides this, the whole will be more than the sum of its parts...

Plus, many longeing issues have to be solved at liberty...

And, many ridden issues have to be solved in hand.

So we strongly believe, and it also appeared already in practice, that it's not a good idea to focus on one training pillar at a time.

You need to have access to the wisdom of the whole encyclopedia to really get the quality you are searching for on all levels.

Therefore, we only offer the basic Mastery Entry Course and the advanced Mastery Program.

But before you continue with the full program, another thing you could do, is to submit an additional touchstone in the Entry course.

Uh, oh..

FAQ #9. Can I submit more touchstones than only one?

Yes! The Entry Course not only prepares you for the Groundwork Grade 1 Touchstone, but also for the Grade 2 Touchstone.

So once your Groundwork 1 Touchstone has been evaluated, and your evaluator tells you that it's quite good, you could continue with the Groundwork 2 Touchstone.

Now there's also another occasion to submit more touchstones than only one:

You could also submit more Groundwork 1 Touchstones, just to tweak your work a little bit more.

You see, the touchstones have to be perceived as lessons.

It’s not that you have to be doing everything ‘correctly’ or ‘perfectly’ at all.

In fact, the value is just getting feedback for where you are at this time.

The learning is going to come from the evaluator's instructions on how to make things better. 

So just send in a video of where you are, and the evaluation will tell you where you need to go, how to stay on track and it helps you to prevent cracks and avoid creating ‘bad’ habits.

So after your first lesson, you can have another one on the same touchstone if you'd like.

Just buy an additional touchstone (€ 67) and submit again to get another lesson and to get more feedback.

But make sure to take advantage of the freebee first - which will be valid for 12 months - and we have this deadline because we all know that procrastination is the thief of time and that 'tomorrow never comes'. So to avoid this, and to make sure that you start DOING something with the materials in the Entry Course we encourage you to take a video lesson within 12 months.  

So use this freebee while you can, even if you have no real riding arena, because if you ask yourself...

FAQ #10. Can I submit touchstones if I don't have a proper indoor or outdoor?

Yes, you can.

We have students from all over the world, and some of them work in fancy indoor riding arenas while others practice in an unlevel pasture.

And both end up with great results!

So just work with what you have, the most important thing is whether your horse is still able to perform the exercises.

Straightness training is all about balancing the horse, so if the ground is so uneven that it will bring the horse out of balance most of the time, it’s not the best idea. 

Your horse might for example experience more difficulties in shifting the weight back when going downwards.

On the other hand, everybody has to do the best they can, with the rescources they have.

So everybody has to make the best of what they have with their facilities and we understand that not everyone has perfectly level arenas.

However, when you start filming your touchstones, try to mark a certain rectangular area in your field with some cones or moveable poles and use that area.

As long as you keep the horizon level (so not having the camera tilted) and you and your horse are able to perform the movements too much difficulty then it is fine.

Then the evaluator will help you and give you the feedback you need.

And talking about feedback...

FAQ #11. Will I speak with or get feedback directly from Marijke?

Yes, you'll meet me in real time in a live broadcast, called a 'Mastermind Session'.

During every Mastermind Session I will answer personal questions from you and other Mastery Students and give tailored advice on your personal situation, plus I will share the latest news and insights concerning Straightness Training.

I always love these sessions, because it's great to experience the vibrancy of the live chat where we'll not meet only other ST Mastery students, but also many ST Instructors from all over the globe.

So if there would be a feeling of 'being the only one' doing Straightness Training, that will completely go away when joining a Mastermind Session, because you'll meet fellow students from over 30 countries!

Make sure to join your freebee, because the session will give you an invaluable blast of energy and motivation, and your growing will be even more effective.

And in case you wonder...

FAQ #12. Can I join more Mastermind sessions than just one?

Yes, and there's one more thing: once you enroll in the Master Entry Course you'll get immediate access to the recordings of last month's Mastermind session.

So you immediatel able to watch the most recent Mastermind session until the next one is live.

And after your live session, you can continue with the Masterymind session with payed sessions if you'd like.

Just email and we'll get you sorted!

So as you can see, there's a period of time in between two mastermind sessions and in between two video lessons, so in case you wonder:

FAQ #13. What if I need instant help in between my mastermind session and video lesson?

Well, support is never more than a few minutes away thanks to our members-only areas on Facebook.

In the ST members groups you have a team of professional ST Evaluators, outstanding support from ST Instructors and our ST Community by your side.

But I realize that there could be a hurdle to take, because....

FAQ #14. What if I am not on Facebook?

In that case, here's something to think about:

Being part of the ST Community on Facebook gives an extra dimension to your ST Mastery experience.

Because in between your video lesson(s) and mastermind session(s), you will feel the aliveness of this course on a daily basis.

That's invaluable if you're the only one doing ST in the riding arena... city... area.... country...

The daily life line will keep you going, you'll not lose momentum! 

So let's try to tackle this hurdle ;) : 

  • I you would like to join, but don't know how, just search for "how to make an account on facebook" on Google and you will find out to do it, it's really, really easy!
  • If you are hesitant to join - because of all the trolls and haters on the internet, or because of privacy reasons - remember three things:
    1. You can make an anonymous account, without adding pictures and detailed information.
    2. The ST members-only groups are 'closed' groups, so member's posts in these groups are not accessible and visible for the public. It's only visible to the group members.
    3. Our community is super cool! We have a really -  really - friendly - helpful - group of people who are very like minded and in fact they are the inspiration for what I share with you in the ST programs.

Because I know, horse training can be a lonely business especially if you are the only one doing ST out there!

So the loving support of the whole ST community including the ST Instructors, Evaluators and me is very beneficial to you, because you’re getting positive help constantly and we work with you and help you genuinely.

So let's say at this moment, you've decide to join the Entry Course, then....

FAQ #15. What if my ENGLISH is not so good? And do you offer the course in other languages?

Since we have customers in over 40 different countries, unfortunately, it is impossible to serve all these countries with educational materials in their own language.

But the good thing is, that I'm not an navitve speaker myself, when it comes to English.

Therefore, I use only simple words, short sentences and I speak slowly.

That means that also for students from for example Italy, Spain, France, Brazil, Russia or whatever non-navtive-English speaking country you live in, the program is easy to follow.

And people laugh about my 'Dunglish' expressions (Dutch + English).

And we always enjoy  the Sweglish, Danglish, and Genglish way of writing of our Swedish, Danish and German students.

We can understand each other perfectly and feel the message and good intentions no matter what.

We are not limited by perfection!

So if you speak a little Franglais, Spanglish, Russlish, or other exotic English variant, you're very welcome to join the club! 

So we have students from all over the world, and that leads to the following questions... 

FAQ #16. Why is there a slight difference in the payment plan and the currency conversion?

Indeed, the GBP and USD prices ares a bit higher than the price in Euros.

That's because we have to make additional costs for currency conversion.

Also the one payment variant in each currency is the best offer.

Because with more payments we have additional adminstration costs.


The 1 payment offer in Euros is the BEST offer.

And to get this offer, you could  converse your pounds or dollars first to euros on your own account and THEN purchase the course.

That's also an option.

And remember, there's no risk now and no risk later, so if you are worring about...

FAQ #17. What if I try and it doesn't work for me - can I get my money back?

Yes. 100%.

But even people even working out in a rural or isolated area from our online course appear to be successful.

Throught the course they gain enough understanding for training their horses without any real life help, by online feedback and coaching only.

But in case it doesn't work out for you...

We're not here to hold anyone hostage in our course!

So here's how our 100% satisfaction guarantee works:

  • Test drive all seven sections of the Entry Course.
  • If within 7 days you don't feel this course is right for you, just email our support team.
  • And we'll issue you a fast and complete refund.

That's how absolutely certain we are that you will find tremendous value in the course.
