My name is Imke, I'm a 27 year old woman from the Netherlands.
After 2 years of traveling I settled down in Bolton.
Now I'm settled down again, I would love to start training/working a horse again!
I have 20 years of experience.
I've worked with mares, geldings and stallions.
Broke in some horses and re-trained horses with bad behavior.
I have mainly done dressage, but also done some western riding (reining and cutting) and a little bit of showjumping.
I have rode some competitions and made horses ready for in hand shows.
Some breeds I rode: frisians, dutch warmbloods, welsh ponies, thoroughbreds, quarter horses and way more.
In the Netherlands I'm also a certified horse riding instructor, and I taught mainly (disabled) kids.
However I ride since I was 7 years old, I'm not very high schooled. My interest was always around the basics, train young horses and have fun.
I'm interested in natural horsemanship, but don't follow a set discipline. I try to combine natural and traditional horsemanship.
I'm highly interested in straightness training/classical dressage.
I love to bond with a horse, ground- and in hand work is a very important part of working a horse for me!
I always classify myself as a mare person, but of course open for geldings/stallions!
I'm around 5ft6.
I'm happy helping out with yard duties/mucking out
Do you have a horse and do you need someone to look after it for 2-4 days a week?
Just send me an email!
