’Wishing you all the very best Linnea, you have been such a help to us, truly you have made a great difference. My partner described it like singing. You’ve helped us find our notes. Things make sense finally. So 💕thank you💕 Linnea for all you’ve done to help us so far, it’s time to rock!’
– Alicia, East Sussex, U.K.
A huge thank you for allowing me to get off the carousel and giving me the chance to learn how to actually ride. I really, really appreciate it!
– Nicola, London.
”Linnea made me more aware in how your body, energy etc effects on how your horse moves, reacts and feels. She really (re)opened my eyes and renewed my eagerness to learn more.. how your horse is supposed to feel when riding, connecting the right way and sending your own energy to the horse. I’ve learned so much in just two days.. I can’t imagine how much I would learn when I would spend more time!
I feel challenged to ride better and train my horse the good way, so he can be the best he can, when he’s feeling at his best. Not being stressed, or not carrying himself the way he is supposed to.
I literally can’t wait to come back and learn more from Linnéa, because I know there is so much that I don’t know! Sending you love with all my heart.”
– Laure Notte, dressage rider, Belgium.
“Thank You for your help Linnea! Wonderful experiences this weekend! Next level, new paradigm. We ride on, well guided.”
