You Are a Dedicated Equestrian on a Personal Path to Mastery

You love working with horses. Perhaps, you also find joy in teaching others. Either way, you're always looking to get better. 

But sometimes, it feels like you're stuck‚ÄĒas¬†if you're in checkmate.¬†

You aim for a smooth ride when training and teaching...

But Your Plan Doesn't Match Reality

You know what to do and maybe you have years of experience. 

Yet, life has a way of throwing unexpected obstacles you're way.

Stormy weather, sudden injuries, accidents, or illnesses can prevent you from achieving our goals. 

Doubt Can Cloud Your Journey

Thoughts like, "Am I really cut out for this?" or "Can I overcome this challenge?" starts to creep in. 

Feelings of confusion, overwhelm or lack of confidence prevent you from being your best self.

But here's the thing:

The external obstacle isn't the only thing that's holding you back...

Meet Your Invisible Opponent

When we face obstacles, our biggest enemy often lives between our own ears.

It's our brain's bias for negativity, overshadowing the positives in our lives.

This tendency, known as positive-negative asymmetry, is completely natural but not always useful.

And here's the key point:

The Problem Isn't The Problem

The real issue is our thinking about the problem:

  • Thinking that we shouldn't have¬†problems.
  • Believing that our equestrian life should be obstacle-free.
  • Or that everyone else's journey is¬†without problems, except ours.

But let's face the truth:

  • Equestrian live isn't like a Hollywood movie where "they lived happily ever after".
  • Life has never been, nor will it ever be, a constant¬†parade of rainbows, unicorns and daisies‚ÄĒ not for¬†anyone!
  • Life has always been a mix of highs and lows ‚ÄĒ and it's the same for everyone, without exception.

Therefore, the art of equestrian life isn't about avoiding obstacles but about learning how to transform them into opportunities for growth and finding meaning.

Let Me Help You Get Over, Under, Around or Through Any Obstacle

If we haven't met yet...

I'm Marijke de Jong, not only a master horse trainer and mentor instructor, but also a fellow traveral on this challenging journey called life.

Like you, I've faced many challenging situations, both personally and with my horses.

Each obstacle seemed like a test, making me feel like I almost wanted to quit...

But during these moments, I made a crucial discovery: 

  • The obstacles weren't working against me, they were actually unfolding in my life for me.
  • An obstacle isn't a roadblock‚ÄĒit's part of the journey that helps¬†you grow. Yes, the obstacle IS the way.
  • Our brain is the most sophisticated tool on the planet,¬†yet an unsupervised brain can not only ruin our training sessions, but our enrire life!


  • It's essential¬†to not just train our horses but also train our own brains.¬†¬†
  • With mental gymnatics and the right¬†mental exercises, we can¬†transform any stumbling block into a stepping stone.

I discovered an ancient, yet highly effective and transformative tool to turn any obstacle into an opportunity for incredible growth.

That's why I'm excited to invite you to my Scholars Program. 

Here is the Plan

Your Journey to Self-Mastery

Here's the best part...

Just by joining Self-Mastery Scholars, you'll unlock even more benefits:

But before we continue, first a quick 'heads-up':

Even though Self-Mastery Scholars has been wonderfully designed to help you overcome obstacles in a structured way as easily as possible, it still requires some dedication and persistent effort on your part.

At the end of the day, YOU are the only person who can change what to think,f eel and do‚ÄĒnot me, not a book, not a set of how-to videos, not a brand-new membership‚Ķ. so I‚Äôm not about to insult your intelligence by telling you¬†this program will do the magic for you.

However, if you really want to feel better on a consistent basis, and are willing to take some action and put some effort in, then this will be of interest to you.

You can learn how to apply a groundbreaking tool that can change your life in an instant.

So let's dive in, and explore what you'll receive...

Hear From Our Members

Don't just take our word for it - read what others have to say:


"The 8 'From Obstacle To Opportunty' Stages are awesome! Thank you!! Self Mastery is so important. I don't want to be stuck any longer. Bring it on!!"


"I really enjoyed the 'From Obstacle to Opportunity' workshops, they have really helped me. Thanks! What has really helped me is just to analyze where this thought is coming from, is it true? Is it real? This has helped me on my journey. My first instinct sometimes when things go wrong is to panic, but I have tools now that enable me to rationalize quicker."


"What a relieve that we have the freedom to choose our thoughts... It took me some time to really grasp & fully understand this ... yesterday, the coin finally dropped (by unlocking the door), right on time.... Already because of this awareness, I realized that my horses are not as difficult to work with as I was thinking (I allowed to believe it, but it is not the truth). So cool to realize this, and I noticed it works for all my thoughts, so now I already catch new limiting thoughts quicker! I am ready for other options/liberating thoughts!"

Everything Is Online - No Travel Required

  • The entire¬†membership is based online, so you can participate from home
