You Love Horses...

You're passionate about your equine partner!

And you want to create an enjoyable riding experience.

Or a harmonious relationship so you can do great things together.

But You Are Struggling ...

Sometimes, it seems like you're standing still, not making any real progress with your horse.

You might have realized your horse doesn't always behave the same way on both sides: 

  • Your horse has a 'difficult' or 'stronger' side,
  • Moves more easily in one direction than the other,
  • Tends to fall in or out on the circle,
  • Is heavy on one rein,
  • Moves slow or irregular,
  • Or often falls into cross canter,

But you're not sure what to do about these riding issues.


Or It's Your Horse's Behavior...


  • Your horse is stubborn and refuses to listen to your aids.
  • Or it feels like your horse is the one in control - like you're just along for the ride.
  • Perhaps you have a horse that is spooky and easily upset about the tiniest thing.
  • Or a horse that is a bit pushy and stepping into your space all the time.

All this could be holding you back from making progress and having fun.

You Gave Your All...


You've probably spent a lot of time, money, or energy on these issues.

You've likely tried all sorts of remedies, treatments or therapists.

Some of which may have offered short term relief.

But that’s all.

Nothing seems to work long-term...

Doing activities with your horse is still complated.

Riding seems impossible.

But you can't fix it. 

The Worst Part?

The struggles can make you feel disconnected from your horse, like you're blaming your horse for the problems you both face.

Maybe you're even feeling rejected by your horse.

Or you find yourself feeling frustrated, not knowing which way to go.

Then it's easy to feel like giving up, and start believing that your horse will never improve...

And That's Just Not How It Should Be...


No one should go through unnecessary suffering with their horse.

An imbalanced horse is no fun.

If you STRONGLY believe that it shouldn't have to be this way...

That there has to be a way out...

Your thoughts are spot on!

You and your horse are meant for much more than this.

And you know it.

My guess is, since you're reading this, you're ready to change all that!

Here's the Good News...

  • It's not your fault
  • It's not your horse's either

It's Mother Nature!

Natural asymmetry is a  normal and common phenomenon in horses that affects their balance and performance if we don't address it properly.

It can cause a LOT of problems when riding your horse.

But we can fight this common 'enemy' together.

We Know Who the "Bad Guy" Is...

It's your horse's natural asymmetry.

Now, we are all born as asymmetrical beings

For example, all creatures are left or right handed - in the hands, feet, paws, claws or hooves.

And this of great help for survival.

But it totally backfires the moment we start riding our horse.

If we don't develop our horse equally in body and limbs, all kinds of "bad" things can happen:

  • rearing
  • bucking
  • your horse won't yield
  • goes against your hand
  • develops¬†an underneck
  • swishes the tail all the time
  • leans in on the circle
  • shows grumpy behavior
  • has a hollow topline
  • the saddles slips to one side all the time

Don't let this happen!

Let Me Help You Unravel The Puzzle

If you're new to me...

I'm Marijke de Jong, founder of Straightness Training, and I'm all about figuring out the 'why' behind what your horse does.

You see, back in 2001, I met a horse named Maestro. Boy, was he a handful! Hard to turn, always rearing, and really, really tough to ride.

I tried everything I knew to solve these problems - but nothing seemed to work.

Then one day, I discovered the root cause: Maestro wasn't just being difficult. He was asymmetrical in 8 different dimensions! That discovery changed everything, so now, I want to share what I learned about natural asymmetry with riders like you.

That's why I've created a Free Training: to help you understand why your horse is struggling and give you the 6 keys of Straightness Training to overcome those challenges.

Think of it as your Ultimate STarter Kit to solving your horse puzzle!
