Found the course superb and very instructive
The course Equine Sports Physiology has made me aware of some pitfalls and misconceptions in horse training. It has made training with a heart rate monitor into a daily practice, and that gives us a lot of useful information.
An interesting course that everyone that has to do with training horse should follow.
Interesting course with good alternations between theory and practice. I‘ve got more insight in interpreting heart rate measurements.
I found it an enrichment in general knowledge of horses and training principles which is actually necessary for every equestrian! After this you should be more capable to lead and train your horse. With, as a result, a happy athlete who is able to peak at the right time. This knowledge is offered to you in a pleasant interactive way with a good and solid link between theory and daily practice.
Very educational and applicable in all disciplines and all levels. I was able to convert my humane knowledge to the concept of horse training.
The course has taught me enough to make my own training programs and I’m now able to measure the results of the training programs by means of heart rate measurements. Also sufficient theoretical basis and pointers for further development and reading.
Inspirational course with important information to teach you how to reach optimal performance in a horse. Useful lessons, with a clear translation to daily practice!
I found it all very interesting. I sat on the edge of my seat the entire time! It has motivated me to want to learn much more about this. I found sad when the training was over. Very interesting and practical. In a clear but scientific way.
Very interesting and with a practical approach. Clear information but still explained with a good scientific background.
Clear information. I have got more insight in organizing training sessions. And the applicability of the heartrate monitor is much larger than I expected.
Instructive course, drawing up training schedules and practical output, with wanting to have even more practical cases to learn
