The Equine Sciences Academy

 

Both Sabine and Jochen Schleese are on the Advisory Board of the Academy. As Advisory Panel members we review, critique and contribute materials to ESA courses in our areas of expertise. We share the deep commitment to research and education in continually seeking knowledge that will allow better care and understanding in providing for our domesticated equines.

The ESA looks to the life way of the wild horse as the model for equine health and soundness because it believes that equines (or any creatures for that matter!( that are kept in a manner consistent with their nature will fare far better in a domestic environment than those that are kept in ways alien to their physiology.

The programs offered are designed to give a thorough fundamental understanding of all key aspects of horse husbandry, as well as the tools to apply to equine care and management.

The ESA offers both an Equine Sciences Degree as well as the most comprehensive Certification in Natural Hoof Care program offered anywhere.

The Academy is founded on the belief that the practice of focusing on one aspect of a horse – the body, the environment, habits, etc. – without due consideration of other possible mitigating factors is a process which is inherently flawed. The science behind a thriving horse is complex, but the principles are simple. The closer he gets to a natural equine environment and lifestyle the healthier he will be in mind, body and spirit. The Academy is dedicated to both research and education to allow this to happen.

DSC_0050 Having spent years doing exercises to supposedly loosen my hips in an attempt to sit deeper in the saddle and prevent my toes from turning out while riding, I discovered when I ride in a ‘female’ saddle, I am immediately sitting deep in the saddle with my toes pointing forward – without even warming up. I wonder what unnecessary damage I’ve done to myself from years of putting torque on my joints from these exercises from a classical riding book. I wonder how many other women have unnecessarily hurt their body believing they struggle with ‘tight hips’.
