When we start educating our horse we always keep in mind its natural abilities and capacities. Our aim is for a balanced, strong, healthy horse that develops to its full potential.
We will find that there are certain steps in the education of the horse that are followed from the very beginning right until it reaches full education. These steps and their order have been the same throughout the history of horsemanship, since the first masters started educating their horses centuries ago.
We invite you to join us on this path aiming for a balanced, strong healthy horse that develops to its full potential.
The intention is to educate horse and rider along the path towards the ultimate goal of unity. Working towards this goal we offer a training program that touches all aspects of horsemanship. We work in an academic way, making sure you truly understand the methods and ideas behind them.
The program is never rigid and adapts to the natural abilities of horse and rider. We invite you to join us on this path aiming for a balanced, strong healthy horse that develops to its full potential.
Belinda gives private clinics around the world. Private clinics are for those students who like a more tailored approach than public clinics can provide. It offers a retreat like experience in which you can totally immerse yourself in the art of horsemanship with Belinda. The program is completely adapted to your needs; it can be focused on a specific difficulty you have come across; or a complete education in a recurring clinic.
A private clinic can be for an individual student or for groups of up to six riders, and range from two to eight days. The intimate setting allows students to advance rapidly and overcome challenges without distraction. Smaller groups allow the theoretic parts to be more informal, allowing for more discussion and greater understanding.

Belinda offers public clinics throughout Australia and overseas. Public clinics run over a two-day program and involve a maximum of eight riders. Each rider receives one-on-one tuition from Belinda in three intensive sessions so that progress can be made over the course of the program.
Practical sessions are interspersed with lectures involving all aspects of horsemanship; like the biomechanical concepts and theories behind dressage training. Questions are an important part of the program and ample opportunity is provided for participants to ask about aspects of Belinda’s training methods, so that a clear understanding of concepts and underlying reasoning can be gained.
Public clinics have up to eight riding students and also offer the opportunity to attend as a spectating student. The idea is to create a learning environment in which likeminded people can learn from each other’s challenges and successes. Belinda will focus on the individual riding students and use these encounters to illustrate her method to the audience. All students will take part in the lectures and there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
To find a clinic close to you please contact your nearest clinic provider.
Upon attending and working with Belinda at one of her public clinics, talented and committed riders are offered the option of enrolling in a masterclass with Belinda. Masterclasses allow small, selected groups of riders to work with Belinda four times a year on a consistent basis so that they can progress their riding rapidly.
These are invitation only events that are offered to those riders that show potential and are willing to fully commit to Belinda’s training program. No spectators are allowed during a masterclass to ensure riders can concentrate and work on progression in a guided, comfortable and private environment.
An internship with Belinda allows you to progress rapidly in your training and skills in the equestrian disciplines. As an intern you will work and reside at the Bolsenbroek Stud property; located in the lush green hinterland of Coffs Harbour. It gives you the change to work closely with Belinda and her horses. During your internship you will be training and handling different horses, from foals to stallions. Doing so gives you a more complete training, as each horse offers different challenges.
A minimum three month long commitment is required. This ensures that interns receive training for a long enough period to get a true understanding of horsemanship and dressage that sets them up with a solid foundation for the future of their equestrian career.Internship is a full time commitment. In return for your training and accommodation you will be expected to help with daily tasks required in the upkeep of both the horses and property of the Bolsenbroek Stud.
Internship places are very limited an applicants are carefully selected. Please write us a detailed letter of motivation accompanied by your equestrian resume to apply for a place in our internship program.
