The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 12 | Lucie Klaassen

This week on the Whole Horse Podcast, I connected with the incredible Lucie Klaassen in the Netherlands, fresh on the heels of her first New Zealand/Australia clinic tour. I never know quite what to call Lucie, as her combination of tools and way of working with horses is truly unique and defies labels. In her own words: “I do not follow one method or trainer, I love to learn from different teachers and I try to stay open to everything and then find my own way. Now I have a huge ‘toolbox’ that I can use. I think there is not ONE method that fits every horse and rider. Every horse is unique so I do a lot by intuition and feel.  The horse will tell me what he needs…”

Here are a few of the treasures in her tool box: Straightness Training Instructor, Centered Riding instructor, EAD coach (Equine Assisted Development), Masterson Method Certified Practitioner, Holistic massage therapist (for human).

Lucie offers international Body Awareness workshops and Balanced Rider & Horse clinics and has had the pleasure of teaching in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK and is very open to traveling to new places in the world to share this work!
