Desiree´s work starts where the vertebrae of two mammal connect. At first it is almost ridiculously easy, with unusual exercises like the "wiggly-waggly", cycling backwards and singing in all gaits. This already makes every rider who is too much in his head, and every scared rider stumble upon the first aha moment. It is easy to trust Desiree´s calm, attentive and charming manner.

It is unbelievable what we (Picobello and I) have achieved through your lessons: This ease of process - warm up in 10 minutes and off you go - this looseness in both of us - this load capacity, bending of the hand and momentum - this almost slow-motion galloping - a real pleasure! Some people wonder why there is so much smiling while riding! I look forward to our sessions very much.
The word “seated training” does not do justice to what Desiree was able to convey to us. It's a full program of body control as a rider and, associated with that communication with the horse. We are now fans. Regardless of whether you are a recreational or tournament rider, or your riding style, Desiree picks up everyone individually, encourages and challenges in a very friendly, but also efficient manner.
