weekend course

By weekend course is meant a 1.5-day course with up to eight practical participants and any number of theory participants, organized by the interested party. On Saturday there are two theory lessons (45-60 min. each) and each practice participant has two lessons (30 min. each). On Sunday there is one lesson per practice participant and at the end of the course we have a final talk where we discuss what the respective course participant has for homework with his horse, so that the students can continue to work independently at home. In the best case a weekend or day course takes place every half year, so that no big questions or mistakes creep in over the duration.

For a 1.5-day weekend course with theory and practical instruction, the organizer pays 1980 € incl. VAT, plus travel costs (1.00 € per double kilometer plus VAT). or travel expenses incurred by a journey by train or plane. In this case, the organizer should also arrange for a transfer from the train station/airport to the hotel/course location and back. I will book the flight or train connection myself.

The organizer is responsible for the catering, also he determines the costs for the catering (coffee, cake, drinks and two warm lunches). The costs for my catering (incl. dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday in case of an overnight stay) will be borne by the organizer. 

If I have a journey of more than 100 km, I need an overnight accommodation in a nearby hotel. The organizer will book the accommodation and bear the costs.

If you would like to organize a weekend course, please contact me as early as possible to arrange a date. To do this, contact me best by email:

I ask for your understanding that in case of cancellation of firmly booked courses (not later than 8 weeks before the course date) I have to charge a cancellation fee of 25% of the course price. In this case, the organizer will also bear the costs of the already booked flight or train connection as well as cancellation costs for hotel or other.

I will be happy to provide you with photos for web purposes. Facebook also offers a good advertising platform.

Are guest horse stalls available at the venue? Often participants from outside are also interested. With a higher number of participants (theory as well as practice participants) a larger and more effective exchange takes place. However, it is not a must.
