Training with Jan de Boer (Dutch pony team driver, 2007 World Champion, 5 x Windsor CAI4* Winner (2010 – 2016), 2017 WC Minden Silver medal Winner) was held in Tipperary over the weekend. Report and photos are below.

“From Saturday morning to Sunday evening a dry and partly sunny training ground at Kilcoran, Tipperary was the base for a Jan de Boer training clinic.
Lots of young prospective horses and ponies (3-5 year olds), as well as some ‘old hands’ were put through their paces over the course of the 2 days.
Lots of emphasis was placed on rhythm and correct transitions, as well as a balanced body with an elastic topline.
Some spectators arrived from as far afield as Northern Ireland to witness Jan’s training method.
If there is desire by the members of HSI-CDS or NICDA in the future, we might ask Jan to return and fit in another training into his busy schedule.
Folke Rohrssen.”
