The secret behind our success - and yours

The six keys of Straightness Training

 

The foundation of the ST Academy is causal coaching. This means, that we focus on finding the cause of a problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms. This means, we never teach our students how to fight physical and psychologial imbalance with, for example, special bits and reins. Instead, we teach them how to reduce and counteract the natural asymmetry, which causes the imbalance in the first place.

Our six keys of Straightness Training and logical system of progressive exercises can solve any problem that is caused by natural asymmetry - from balance to behavioral issues. As you progress through our program, you'll learn and apply the six keys to your own horse in order to achieve the level of Grade 1 in groundwork, longeing, work in hand and ST at liberty. These keys will be life-changing for your 2- and 4-legged students too.

Your Unique Selling Point

Become Grade 1 in four Training Pillars. Empower others to do the same.

Groundwork

Groundwork is like the foundation under a house. It sets the other pillars up for success.

Longeing

With longeing, each horse can learn to how to 'turn' instead of falling on the inside or outside shoulder.

Work in hand

Many riding problems can be solved in work in hand, and it helps us prepare our horse for ridden work.

ST at liberty

Liberty is the pillar to see if our horse understands what we want and is motivated to do it.
