Our services for students

Individual training

Together with the students are individually tailored training plans designed to also include especially the dressage riding under moderate supervision, which forms the basis for a successful show jumper. Periodically, the training sessions are filmed and discussed together in a feedback meeting. This rigorous training makes it possible to pre-defined objectives, to work consistently and implement and achieve them over time.

Shows support

We accompany the students to shows in Germany, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, or even to Eastern Europe. In addition to these shows, we also go several times a year to 2-week events, such as Oliva Nova, Arezzo or the Baltica tour.

Practiced horsemanship

In addition to riding the students practiced “Horsemanship” is to be taught. This includes the coordination of a blacksmith, vet, feeding and the right attitude. In addition, our skilled and competent team regularly offers theory lessons to give students an optimal holistic knowledge of our partner the “horse”. Our students learn to be independent and to take responsibility for their partners the “horses”. These are important values ​​in our daily lives.

Central location

Our central location also allows our students to feel very comfortable in their free time by us. The proximity to Hamburg, a 30 minute drive, offers the possibility of doing something both culturally and leisure. The two cities Bad Segeberg and Neumünster, with the outlet store are only 15 minutes away by car.

International team

Our student team is very international. In addition to the focused training the team feeling is very important for us. We consider essential the organization of BBQs, time together or playing billiards in the Casino.
