The general requirement for a license is the active participation in the Knighthood. Licensed trainers are pupils of Bent Branderup since many years.
They have shown their ability to train different horses and/or pupils, which makes them trustworthy and and a reliable partner in the education of horse and rider.
The trainer license is valid for one year and demands from the trainer that he/she meets some special regulations:
A Bent Branderup ® Trainer commits to have his/her own work with his/her horse checked and guided by Bent Branderup at least twice a year, and that he/she will continue to develop by improving on -or at least maintaining the - level he/she had during the previous training check.
Furthermore, the Bent Branderup ® Trainer will have the possibility to participate in update sessions for trainers in the Academic Art of Riding. Participation in at least one of these updates are required for maintaining the license.
An update can be training as a week student, or participation in a special training seminar.
We repeatedly receive requests, how the education of a Bent Branderup® Trainer is structured and
what the costs are. The truth is: there is no fixed structure and no package price! Every rider and every trainer is responsible for his or her own education. If you want to become a Bent
Branderup® Trainer, start with developing your own skills in the Academic Art of Riding and
learn to teach! Work together with and learn from other licensed Trainers, visit clinics of licensed trainers and come to Bent as a student in a clinic, as a week student or as a working student
or give him otherwise the opportunity to discover your skills. Be a dedicated student, be a dedicated rider, be a dedicated trainer and let Bent know about your goals.
