All of Holger's students, whatever their age or skill level, can count on getting an all-inclusive training service. It doesn't always start with buying a new horse, but otherwise the procedure is always the same. First of all an individual training plan is developed with suitable objectives for each lesson, week, month or even year. Holger helps to plan competition entries and the rider is supported at the competition when walking the course and warming up before the class. And they also get feedback after the round. That's why many riders from all over the world trust Holger Hetzel to help them improve their performance.

In the meantime the yard became a real equestrian centre with the best possibilities for international rider. This is why a lot of national and international showjumping professionals are renting stables as a temporary home between shows or- like the Americans- for their summer stay in Europe.
