Learning Center Testimonials

We would love to hear from you. Please send your comments to Thank you!





As a rider, trainer, instructor and person with horses, I find this web site the "missing link" to our partnership with our horses. As the "Rider": a very clear approach to understanding the horse, setting goals, having a plan and the "how to" riding information. As the "Trainer": each horse has it's own issues and it is not always "black & white", the trainer must find ways to help each horse. This is a great place for that resource; material and encouragement!

As the Instructor: This is a "Pot-Of-Gold".... Material at our finger tips! Forms and information to share with our students. A wealth of material on helping our students reach their goals. A chat forum to share with and seek ideas, continued education with clinic and modals and an e-mail "hot-line" when needed.

As a person with horses: a place to broaden our horizon with our horse; a connection with other "horse people". If living in an area with no instructor/trainer available; this is a great "self-help" site.

Henrik, I have found your simple, down to earth approach to working with horses and students my anchor in my career. It has been an honor the past 14 years to be your student and friend. Thank you for following your dream....and bringing us this web site.

To all those that have helped build "this bridge" for the good of horse and rider.... THANK YOU! You deserve a "standing ovation"!!!!!

I will end with my favorite quote: "The horse's beauty, given to him by God, must be maintained. It is not our right to destroy this beauty, to create a creature of our own design. Our obligation is to allow the horse to enhance his beauty through our training and our sympathetic riding. As we develop our own inner-harmony and our spiritual unity with the horse, we come to recognize that the horse's full natural beauty can emerge only with our most tactful, understanding and patient care. We are the custodians, not the creators, of his beauty." (quote from Jill Keiser Hassler)"

"I have found the Learning Center to be exactly what I have wished for since starting to learn dressage, a system for training my mare in a way that makes it easy for her to progress calmly and steadily.

Henrik's theory is completely clear, and I am the kind of learner who needs to have a theoretical basis for what I am doing. I have done quite a bit of reading on classical methods in dressage but have never found such a clear and simple explanation of how to translate the theory into specific riding practice. Henrik's text gives me the specific tools I need to achieve each result and then offers ways to test the results. He constantly reminds us to see things from the horse's point of view, which is so important to remember. After reading the entire book, I can now go to just what I need to know when I have a question. Yesterday I reviewed "the outside rein" and "the aids " which helped me be clearer to the mare and of course she went better as a result. Even though I take weekly lessons with Ulla, I cannot call her every time I have a question. Henrik's text is like having 24/7 tech support for my riding! All in all I think this book is a classic and belongs with those of the Masters!"
