When starting your young horse, it’s an excellent moment to give your horse the tools they need to be successful in our human environment, but also to show them how to manage themselves.
About Tristan Tucker
Tristan has learnt from the best trainers from dressage experts to Australian horsemanship gurus and circus trainers. He has realized that it’s of great importance to really understand a horse and have a good understanding of horsemanship.
Tristan has proven with his TRT method that every (dressage) horse can be confident and relaxed but that it just takes the right training. It’s his mission to show horse owners that they don’t have to take certain behaviour for granted and that it can be changed.
Due to the overwhelming demand for training and clinics worldwide about the TRT method, Tristan has launched the online program with co-founder Conny Loonstra. This way, ambitious riders all over the world can now work with the TRT method.
