Master Your Horsemanship & Dressage / DressuurNatuurlijk 

More than 25 years ago Astrid vd Ploeg 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. 

The more you know, the more you know you don't know!

I am very happy with my experience with Astrid. I learned a lot about my horse and maybe even more about myself, I am still very grateful for that !!

Lydia Arendse-Reuvekamp Gille

I can only be positive about Astrid. Her knowledge of horses, dressage and people is considerable. It is not unimportant that she can convey this knowledge in a very structured and clear manner.
