Doing liberty with four horses for the first time really made me feel like a beginner juggler, trying to keep all four balls in the air at the same time;
Because either I lost them all, or I lost three of them, or two, but finally I could keep them all in the air, phew 😉 .
In this juggling challenge I merged two solid duos:
Duo 1: Romanesque & Prince Elmelund
Duo 2: Maestro & Toronto
The members of each duo can get along really well and know the concept when they work together as a team at liberty. And all four horses are living together 24/7, so I thought it would not be such a big deal to merge these two duos to one team of four.

Rosan Veer: “What an amazing and inspiring days I’ve had! Together with my fellow Straightness Training trainee instructors Anouk and Zaneta (who came all the way from South Africa!) I was invited to Marijke’s ‘horselab’.
I had the honour to work with Toronto, a real giant compared to Ciaran! But a very lovely giant 🙂
