You want to do things differently

In the past years there has been too much focus on getting high scores and moving up the dressage levels.

Leading to all kinds of negative situations for our horses and bad publicity for the dressage sport.

Maybe you’ve come to a point where you want to do things differently.

Yes, you want to train your horse in a way that he learns to optimally use his body with looseness and the right balance.

But while ALSO keeping a focus on what your horse needs and if he’s healthy and comfortable.

Because your horse comes first

It’s not about the accolades and prizes.

It’s about the process together with your horse. The development you both go through.

Seeing your horse progress and you both enjoying the process is where true fulfillment lies.

And that’s not only in the dressage arena.

It’s not only the riding that’s important.

Also the management and the mental part is just as important.

To help you with that, we’ve developed the Rider’s Club Year Program.

Who is the Rider's Club Year Program for?

Do you recognize yourself in one of the following situations?

They went before you...

We have 9000+ members in 35+ countries.

"My horse is calmer, has a better connection, and more impulsion." - Marjolein
"She is now more open in her head-neck posture and moves with more suppleness from her back." - Mirjam
"She moves in a more horizontal balance, and my posture has greatly improved." - Evelien
"He now responds well to my aids and no longer walks behind the vertical." - Emmie
"She is more collected, and this without tension." - Deborah

and so can you!​

"Rien explains how to ride the whole horse and not only the neck, in a very simple way, because he divides everything into small steps..."

"Rien has an incredible depth of knowledge and understanding of the horse's psychological and emotional world with a great respect for the rider..."

"It's really great for people to have the ability to see and experience what it should be like. Developing your eye for what is good and what is not..."

"The dressage world needs this system, this method. It's not a quickfix, it takes time to develop a horse. But this system works for every horse..."

''With the online course you'll be able to break the whole dressage riding down into segments. And then you understand where it's all heading to..."

''I really enjoyed Rien's program, it's the kind of thing that I keep going back to, over and over again. Whenever I have a question and I want to make sure that I'm on the right track, I go back to the training...''

"This Year Program is suitable for all horses, regardless of breed and level."

– Rien van der Schaft

Can I do this on my own?

We now have so many success stories in the online platform that I dare to say that you can make a lot of progress through this training.

Don’t underestimate the value of watching the training videos and answering all the questions in the workbook.

You are challenged to think about aspects of your training that you may have never thought about before.

And if you get stuck, you can participate in the live Q&As and ask questions or even submit videos.

Moreover, we also have a very loyal Community that supports and helps each other.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve got riders and horses of all levels.

However, to get the most out of this training, it will be useful if you have experience with the basic principles. As the fundamentals are crucial if you aim to increase your horse’s level in the correct way.

Big chance it does. Rien’s method respects the way in which horses learn and it’s developed in a way that your horse’s body will become stronger over time. He has been training horses for over 45 years and he’s never encountered a horse on which his method didn’t work.

However, not all horses have the same level of talent, so sometimes it can take longer for one horse than for the other to improve his level. But Rien says that every horse can give you a good feeling and it doesn’t matter how much talent he has.

Rather, the training method will not suit every rider. If you especially want to ride your horse low, deep and round or with a draw rein and you are looking for a ‘quick trick’ to solve a problem, then this online training and training method is not for you.
