During TRT Live in the Netherlands, I had the pleasure to meet Electric Pleasure. This mare really lived up to her name! It took me quite a while to teach her that she didn’t have to rely on her natural instincts, but that she could manage herself instead. You can see clips from the demonstration […]
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.

One of our online members asked me what she should do when her horse is spooking and she feels that she is reacting in her body to when her horse spooks. If you have a horse that’s a little bit nervous or that’s prone to spooking, your anticipation to that spook is creating tension in […]
Last week I was at the World Cup Qualifier, the Dutch Masters, in the Netherlands to give two clinics. While I’ve been here, I’ve been really focusing on where the attention of the riders is when they’re bringing their horse to the warmup or when they are entering the main arena to ride their test.

Does he really know the trailer? It is a question I often ask myself. ‘He is just missing parts of information that he needs to know how to be relaxed about traveling.’ This is what I think when someone tells me of their trailer loading problem or horse. Some of you may have seen the […]
We all want our horses to enjoy their daily work. That each day they are enthusiastic and energetic in their attitude towards their training. We want to create a willing mindset in our horses, but how do we create this? It of course starts with the right mind set of the rider, which begins with […]
A horse’s learning begins the moment their feet hit the ground. The learning of how they should perceive the world they are born into, listening to their instincts and following the behavior of their mother. They are being shaped by their environment and their experiences. Left in this process to grow up with other horses […]
I often get the question what to do when a horse all of a sudden ‘explodes’. Before the explosion it seemed as if everything was under control, but then you get a burst of tension that you didn’t expect and it felt like it came out of nothing. It’s a very unpleasant situation, because how […]
The other day someone came up to me and asked for advice about her horse spooking in one particular corner of the arena. It didn’t happen every day, but most of the times riding past the corner involved increased tension. You can imagine that when you have this problem for a while, not only your […]
Imagine that your horse gives you an amazing feeling in the training. You feel him rising underneath you and it feels like your horse can read your mind by responding to the smallest aids. Wow! After practicing the dressage test at home and being convinced that you would for sure get a standing ovation from […]
