Our Philosophy

 

People:

I am a professional horse trainer with more than 28 years’ industry experience, based in Cape Town, South Africa but fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world to share our training and coaching methods.

My unique combination of classical dressage training, natural horsemanship, positive reinforcement and the belief that ‘there must be a better way’ has formulated my innovative training techniques enabling me to work with professional and leisure riders alike. Over the years I have come to learn how horses and humans communicate most naturally and our coaching and training modules are underpinned with this understanding.

I believe that, in training the trainer, we can extend our mindset and encourage more people to join our mindset - We focus on:

  • Positive reinforcement
  • Learning theory
  • Ground and riding skills
  • As well as natural collection and trains riders and horses in all disciplines. Jenku’s positive attitude towards life and his passion for learning has inspired many “ordinary” riders to accomplish extraordinary results with their horses

No matter what your time constraints, goals and aspirations we have a training module just for you!

I have been published in several different South African magazines and is a NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner.

 

Principles:

We believe our horses are a reflection of our own abilities. When we draw our attention to improving ourselves it stands to reason that the connection to our horses strengthens.

Our training focuses on self improvement in order to:

  • Understand our horses
  • Engage naturally
  • Educate our minds and our bodies follow
  • Learn how to learn
  • Reward desired behaviour
  • Give accurate feedback
  • Obtain natural collection
