Rewardbased Art of Riding with Angelica Hesselius combines the science of positive reinforcement with the fundamental ideals of Academic Art of Riding to form a human-equine partnership. 


I focus on balance. Both emotionally and physically. Do you want to create a better relationship with your horse? Find a better physical balance and work towards straightness? 

Guided by learning theory I aim to create a fun and relaxed way of approaching dressage. Led by the principle from the Academic Art of Riding that the dressage is for the horse, not the horse for dressage. I think gymnastic excerices offers important brainwork for both you and your horse as well as improving both of your bodyawarenes. Love watching this transformation!

Im also looking for a balance between relaxation and motivation. A creative horse that wants to work with her trainer. It is up to us to set the horse up for success! I teach everyone who wants to learn and my goal is to provide yo with tools so that you´re getting better and better in helping yourself. I offer online-coaching via mentorship programs, coaching calls and webinars. I give clinics and courses wordwide. Weekstudents are welcome to our small homely yard in the middle of Sweden. If you want to know more about me, have a look at my CV.
