Equine exercise physiology
During this multi-day training course you learn all about the correct and efficient training of your horse. At the end you will know exactly which training principles exist and how to apply them in the best way possible. It is a hands-on course with a theoretical, scientific basis. Among other things, you will learn about the cardiovascular and respiratory system and the functioning of the muscles. You will apply this knowledge directly in the various cases, demonstrations and other practice assignments. You will also learn to interpret the data of heart rate measurements for various disciplines and process them into an optimal training program.
Basic course ‘Optimal training of your sport horse’
This one-day course introduces you to the basics of sports Physiology in horses. You will discover the differences between humans and horses and you learn how to put these new insights into practice. During the course we are going to work with some horse-rider combinations so you will experience how theory translates into daily training sessions. The basic course gives you a first insight into the world of exercise physiology and gives you, when desired, a nice preparation for the multi-day training. The course can also be given as an in-company training in a shorter format.
Online course ‘Optimal training of your sport horse’
It is also possible to participate online both for the basic course as well as for the multi-day training sport Physiology of the horse. The basic course is available in Dutch and soon in English and Spanish, the multi-day course (only the theorical part) will be available soon in English. You will determine the pace at which you go through the course. The advantage of online learning is that you can watch videos and exercises at your own pace. The courses are offered by online course Center Anivado in collaboration with Moxie Sport.

Found the course superb and very instructive.
The course Equine Sports Physiology has made me aware of some pitfalls and misconceptions in horse training. It has made training with a heart rate monitor into a daily practice, and that gives us a lot of useful information.
An interesting course that everyone that has to do with training horse should follow.
Interesting course with good alternations between theory and practice. I‘ve got more insight in interpreting heart rate measurements.
I found it an enrichment in general knowledge of horses and training principles which is actually necessary for every equestrian! After this you should be more capable to lead and train your horse. With, as a result, a happy athlete who is able to peak at the right time. This knowledge is offered to you in a pleasant interactive way with a good and solid link between theory and daily practice.
Very educational and applicable in all disciplines and all levels. I was able to convert my humane knowledge to the concept of horse training.
The course has taught me enough to make my own training programs and I’m now able to measure the results of the training programs by means of heart rate measurements. Also sufficient theoretical basis and pointers for further development and reading.
Inspirational course with important information to teach you how to reach optimal performance in a horse. Useful lessons, with a clear translation to daily practice!
I found it all very interesting. I sat on the edge of my seat the entire time! It has motivated me to want to learn much more about this. I found sad when the training was over. Very interesting and practical. In a clear but scientific way.
Very interesting and with a practical approach. Clear information but still explained with a good scientific background.
Clear information. I have got more insight in organizing training sessions. And the applicability of the heartrate monitor is much larger than I expected.
Instructive course, drawing up training schedules and practical output, with wanting to have even more practical cases to learn.
