Van Gils Showtraining

I became a show trainer because I love this job. Because to me, there is no greater joy than to enter the arena with a horse that is snorting and dancing on my lead. A horse that trusts me and has fun in the show ring. As much as I enjoy that moment in the spotlight, that moment when I make the horse shine its very brightest…I also love the late night checks in the barn. The cuddles with all of the horses. Their big, dark eyes looking at me with love, their soft noses in my neck.
 
I train these horses with love and with joy.
I teach them to be confident. To explore themselves, to be proud of themselves.
Wherever I go I’ll show them what it means to be loved. And to be trained with patience and reward.
Only then they will do their utter best for me.
Wherever I go, whichever horse I meet they will all get a place in my heart.
