Most important for me is to lay a solid foundation in a young horse's training. It's like building a hourse: when you have a solid foundation, you can continue building on that; if your foundation isn't solid, your whole building will be unsafe and in jeopardy. You can always rely on a solid foundation in your horse's training and get back to it when you later experience problems under saddle.

When starting a young horse, I focus on a solid foundation in all aspects of ground work (bending, turning, stretching, lunging, balance and trust), which is followed by work under saddle. The horse should work happily and without fear.

When teaching riders with their own horses, my focus is to built a partnership between those two. My main focus lies on bringing in agreement the rider's goals with the horse's potential. Honesty towards the horse's owner is my main principle.
