2 Free and 11 recorded webinars (and more coming up!)
As it is not always easy (and in these COVID times, safe) to come to you to tell you about my experiences in endurance, so I have started doing webinars on several endurance-related subjects. This means I am no longer bound to distances and can talk to you from all over the world (well, that's mostly UK and the Netherlands in my case, but I have had already had people follow webinars from New Zealand, France, Italy and Portugal. How exciting is that!

4.Training phases and stimuli
5.Lunging for endurance horses (2 video's)
6.Quality work within your quantity training
7.Knowing whether you are training or just riding
Competing in endurance
8.The competition phase
9.Tapering and rest
10.Feed, feet and all other contributing factors

Free webinar: The unusual endurance suspect
There are 2 webinars that are available for you free of any cost and I hope you will enjoy these.
Let's start with the webinar I did recently. To celebrate 1000 followers on the Groen Equestrian UK facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GreenDistanceEnduranceUK/) I have made a free webinar about which horses can do endurance (spoiler alert: ALL! ;) ).
Of course, the webinar was recorded and shared in the link below.
If you like the webinars or other stuff Groen Equestrian has done, it would be great if you could show it by promoting the website, and please like the Facebook page (a review would be awesome) or share this blog with anyone that might be interested. As you might be aware, self-employed small businesses struggle in these difficult times and every £ is much valued and appreciated.
So I would like to thank you, everyone, that has liked my page, promoted me or has previously followed a webinar or any of my coaching. I love sharing what I have learned over the years and hope this knowledge will help you and your horse.
Enjoy! (but there is more ;) )
2nd Free webinar:
The second free webinar is about the characteristics we need for an endurance horse. And like the previous ones, everything depends on that your ambitions are, but I personally like to turn it around: What can our ambitions be to compete in a healthy way with our horse. Because let's face it: most of us already have a horse, and we want to do or are doing endurance with it.
To do that in a safe and healthy way we need to have as much knowledge ourselves, as we are the rider (or perhaps even manager) of our horse. So Have a look at this video, I hope it will help you and it might inspire you to want to learn some more, perhaps by checking out some of the webinars, or bear in mind that mid-November a new online endurance coaching course is starting.
In this course, I will guide you step by step through the preparation stages, the training and eventually the rides themselves.
Individual online coaching is also possible, look at the options available on the website and don't hesitate to email if you have any questions or need a tailored solution to your situation: https://groenequestrian.co.uk/online-training
You will find the video at the end of this blog, thank you for watching and I hope to see you soon at a webinar or in the online coaching group!
