We believe that the world needs riders who have an amazing relationship and magnificent life with their horses.
A world without unnecessary suffering for horses and riders, because life’s too short to suffer.
The online ST Academy is designed to support riders and their horses - wherever they are in the world.
In the ST Academy, you'll discover the clear concepts, tactics, and strategies that helped thousands of riders across the world to get confident and overcome struggles, plateaus, setbacks, and challenges with their horse.
The ST Academy aims to form a worldwide professional group of loyal and dedicated horse trainers and instructors who commit themselves to the cause of improving health, joy, and beauty in working with horses based on the principles and essences of Straightness Training (ST).
It empowers riders to create an amazing relationship and working partnership with their horse, to spend time wisely and well, and to lead a magnificent and fulfilling life together!
Now to make this dream come true, we use the concept of:
'Each one' who enters the ST Academy starts to 'teach one' horse.
Every time we can make a difference in a rider’s life, and really get them to use StraightnessTraining where they OWN it...
where they don’t just make the change in their horse...
but understand HOW they did it and WHY they did it...
then that person is able to really make a positive difference for his or her horse!
With the 'each one, teach one' principle we are changing the world one owner and one horse at a time, and this leads to this GIGANTIC multiplied and worldwide effect!
Now to make a life-changing impact, we're doing everything we can to educate and empower you!
It all starts with the ST Mastery Program, which helps you develop understanding and motivation to fast-track your growth, so you can achieve extraordinary results with your 'ordinary' horse - no matter what age, breed, size or conformation.
The next step is the ST Evaluation Program, which is designed to evaluate and measure your level of skill and that of your horse. It enables you to progress at your own pace, stay on track, and guide you further on your journey.
Riders who passed a certain set of evaluations in all five training pillars of ST - which are groundwork, longeing, work in hand, riding, and liberty - can be invited to the international ST Instructor Program.
The ST Academy is designed to walk you STep-by-STep through the Mastery, Evaluation, and - if it suits your ambition - the Instructor Program.
We already helped thousands of Mastery students across 50+ countries, and we'd be honored to work with you too!
The ST Academy helps you to optimize your knowledge and skills, and as a result, you can actualize your horse's potential in body, mind, heart, and soul:
To enhance this personal process, we believe in the African Proverb which says:
"If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together."
A lot of riders are 'the only one' doing Straightness Training in the riding arena...
Or at the barn...
Or in their home-town...
Or even in the country...
But that's the wonderful thing about the ST Academy:
You’ll reach like-minded Mastery students and ST experts all across the world, but you never have to leave home!
We strongly believe in 'together is better'!
And thanks to the internet we can do great things together, and get far!
We can build a world in which the vast majority of riders go home every day feeling empowered and fulfilled by training their horse!
We believe in a bright future and our ability to build it together, so we'd love 💕to have you join us!ACCESS ST ACADEMY REVIEWS
