German Olympic team and individual medalist who already received a perfect 10 on her seat at the Olympics told Dave Thind during a DTM session that 'as riders we can always improve and the goal is to find out how we can make small improvements first in our body and then in the horse. For example, how to make the right pirouette as good as the left."
- Improve for a more beautiful, deep, supple and effective seat - regardless of your level or riding discipline.
- Release tension that blocks your horse, whether a small tightness in one hip or more visible chronic asymmetry.
-Unleash your horse’s scope and full potential
- Break through old performance barriers
- Say goodbye to pain through improved biomechanics
- Reduce and take charge of anxiety
"Having experienced what Hanna Somatics ( based on Moshe Feldenkrais' teaching ) have done for my personal life and my riding, I hope many other riders will think outside of the box to help their riding while exploring their body. It helped to bring my body into a neutral state free of tension, and heightened my body awareness through movement. Thumbs up for Dave Thind to encourage people to help themselves."

"Dave Thind holds a ‘Trainer A’ license from the German Equestrian Federation. This high level degree is a level III, the highest possible, and one step higher than the ‘Bereiter’ title. An International Level III means certification as a Master Instructor. This level of certification allows Dave to act as an ambassador for both the principles and correct application of the German classical system of training. The panel of judges was thoroughly impressed by Dave's abilities as an instructor and awarded him an almost perfect score."
