26 | How To Turn Your Obstacles Into Opportunities

When someone tells me that they have a difficult horse or a problem, it doesn’t mean anything to me.

Seriously. It’s irrelevant. Why?

Because these horses make us wiser and STronger.

You can’t become the horse trainer you want to be on Easy Street.

Overcoming obstacles is a skill you can learn and practice, and when you do, you will be amazed at what you can achieve with your horse.

And that's exactly what Christine de Groef from Belgium did...

Weekly STory: Christine de Groef & Dimon

Meet Christine - who is a Scholar in the Basic ST Instructor Certification Program - and her Icelandic horse and "Viking Warrior" Dimon!

In Weekly ST, we explore how Christine found Straightness Training, the unique obstacles and tölt issues she faced with her gaited horse, and the 3 STrategies she used to get the results she was looking for.

When we see riders who look like us excelling, we believe that it is possible for us to succeed as well.

What Others Have To Say


Amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed this live session replay today!! Christine de Groef how wonderful to hear your story & to see how far you have come. I can say I identify with parts of your story. I know little on Icelandic ponies & the education relating to them was really enjoyed. I look forward to seeing more of you as you continue to spread your wings!! ❤


Being consistent and persistent with clarity of purpose shown here is a real incentive for me to keep trying to improve my on ground skills.


❝ I love that my fellow scholars' achievements are highlighted and celebrated here. Their journeys are inspiring and I feel privileged to be learning along with them. Looking forward to being a student of these upcoming instructors!
