Astrid van der ploeg
Founder & owner of Master your Horsemanship & Dressage and the dutch company DressuurNatuurlijk.
More than 25 years ago Astrid started to study the handling and training of horses that had an "extra challenge". Horses that had difficulty establishing contact, horses that had fear, horses with aggression, horses that showed undesirable behavior on the ground or under the saddle or horses that had (major) movement problems. She knew one thing for sure: there is still so much to help horses and owners!
Natural Horsemanship & Classical Dressage are the foundation for the training. Always looking to improve the communication and getting better results by finetuning your aids and techniques.
