Instructor Confidence

3-Day Bootcamp with Marijke de Jong


Starting September 23, I'll hand over the proven success pathway needed to become an instructor, so you can do what you love, do what you're good at, do what the world needs, and do what you get valued for. 



You want to make a positive difference for horses and riders...

Only problem is...  you don't know if you have what it takes.


There are 3 main hurdles that keep horse lovers from transforming into the amazing instructor they're meant to be.

Which one is holding you back?

Problem #1


You're not sure if you know enough and are skilled enough in order to teach Straightness Training.

You feel unconfident, because you think you've not reached the rank of "expert".

Problem #2


You don't know if you have the skills as a teacher to be a Straightness Training Instructor.  

You feel unsure because you have no or not enough experience in teaching.

Problem #3


You think it's too late to jump into a new career or that you're too old to change your job or profession.

You feel comfortable but also a bit useless or empty because you don't do what you love.

It feels like there are SO MANY THINGS standing in your way of becoming an ST Instructor which is causing you to...


Stay in your old job or in your comfort zone while keeping things the same, so nothing changes...



You keep dreaming about how your life would be or should have been if you followed your heart.

Trust me... I get it.

I hear it all the time, my friend.


I meet a ton of passionate horse lovers who'd love to help other people and their horses, but they stay stuck.

But here's the secret:

Not a single ST Instructor in history started out thinking they've got this thing in the bag.

Every single one of us gave it a shot and followed a simple success pathway to become a Straightness Training Instructor.

If you're willing to learn how to get out of your own way and step into a career of contribution, so you, too, can make a meaningful impact on the lives of other riders and their horses, than this bootcamp is for you.


Hi, I'm Marijke de Jong

And this isn't my first rodeo!


I have helped thousands of horse lovers from all over the world transform into confident horse trainers who train effectively, have a great connection with their horse, create beautiful and meaningful things together.

I also trained 100+ instructors:

First, I had the honor to train 46 instructors in the Netherlands who got certified in three training pillars: groundwork, longeing and riding.

As of 2014, I trained 30 international Straightness Training Instructors in the USA, the UK, Austria, Germany, Estonia, Denmark, France, Brazil, and South Africa. They all who got certified in five training pillars: groundwork, longeing, work in hand, riding and Straightness Training at liberty.

This year, 36 trainee instructors are in training to become a certified ST Instructor at the end of December 2022.

And while that all sounds great, I started off exactly where you are today...

In fact, when I first started my own Straightness Training journey back in 2001, I struggled with the natural asymmetry of my own horse called Maestro.

However, over the years, I learned everything there is to know about how to rebalance a horse in body, mind, heart and soul, and called it "Straightness Training". 

In 2007, I was ready to share my insights with the world. Since then, riders from all over thew world have learned how to overcome their struggles with their horse, and they can even teach it to other people. 


Because I founded the Straightness Training Academy and managed to nail down the essential ingredients to become a succesful instructor - and I want to share them with you in this 3-day bootcamp!

If you want to become a Straightness Training Instructor, this is what we need to get serious about:

It doesn't matter how great of a horse trainer you are.

If you don't know how to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be, you're not going to be able to become the instructor you're meant to be.

Successful horse riders know that in order to get the results you're looking for, you need to stop dreaming en start doing. 

In fact, you need to have three things in place:

  • You have to develop the skill of Straightness Training.
  • You have to develop the ability to be able to teach Straightness Training.
  • You have to build the confidence to just do it.

Once you have these three ingredients nailed down, you're well on your way to become an amazing Straightness Training Instructor and build the dream career you've always wanted.

So let's do this!

Join the Instructor Confidence Bootcamp


A 3-day Bootcamp to Help Horse Riders Get Clear on the Skills and Strategies They Need To Become a Straightness Training Instructor.

Yes, let's to this »

By the end of the Instructor Confidence Bootcamp, you'll have:

  • A success pathway and your gameplan locked in and ready to go, so you can finally stop dreaming and start doing. 
  • The confidence that you, too, can be an ST Instructor that’ll allow you to make a positive difference on the lives of many riders and their horses, and a lasting impact in the world. 

Here's What You're Getting Inside The Bootcamp:

3 Days of live training to take you from "Do I have what it takes?" to "I'm possible!"

Training #1: Developing the right skills

One of the biggest mistakes instructors make is not taking the horse's natural asymmetry into account. They don't actually have the right knowledge about it nor the Straightness Training skill set to be able to even think about teaching. 

You need to develop essential Straightness Training skills, otherwise, you'll be fighting the symptoms and not addressing the root cause when training a horse.

On Day 1, we're going to get crystal clear on exactly what fundamental knowledge and skills you need to develop in order to train any horse effectively.


Training #2: Teaching made easy


A lot of instructors act or feel like a sort of "activity supervisors" keeping their students and their horses simply busy with walk, trot and canter. They don't use a logical system of progressive exercises in different training pillars - like you do. This sets you apart and help you stand out as an instructor. 

Inside this training, we're going to get clear on the educational program of a horse-rider combination, so you always know where to start and what to do next in your lessons, and never run out of ideas on what to teach.

Training #3: Your Succes Path

Once you know the skills you need to develop - no matter what your current experience level is - it's time for action. In this training, we're going to be creating your step-by-step roadmap based on YOUR unique goals.

I want to show you there is a clear path to become an instructor, and it's not as complex, as difficult, or as elusive as you think it is. Get behind-the scenes examples and shared experiences from real-life ST Instructors, so you can focus on what works and leave the rest.

You'll leave this training with a proven game plan and a "can-do" instructor's mindset to make it happen.

The Instructor Confidence Bootcamp is right for you...

  • If you're in your 20s and thinking about a career as a Straightness Training Instructor.
  • If you want to start a second career at 30. 
  • If you're over 40 and are thinking about a career change.
  • If you have still have lots to offer to riders and horses after 50.
  • If you think 60 is NOT too old to start a new career as an ST Instructor.
  • If you're almost 65 and retirement is not in your vocabulary.
  • If you're 70 and want to plot your comeback career in the horse world.
  • If you believe life begins after 80 and that it's never too late to show what's possible in life.
