My name is Eda Vallimäe and this is my webpage about art of riding (classical dressage) and seat training for the rider. I live in Tartu, Estonia (EU).
I am certified physiotherapist for humans and work with patients with chronic pain and musco-sceletal disorders in Tartu University Clinic. With riders one of my biggest passions is seat training.
I am also a "squire" in academic art of riding and Level- 1 Centered Riding instructor.
I have also passed Introduction and Advanced level Therapeutic Riding course "Balance in Movement" (Analysis, treatment and training posture, movement and balance) concept for seat trainers with world-class seat specialist Susanne von Dietze- Pollok in Goteborg, Sweden.
My reasearch work for MSc degree has been on Estonian female equestrians low back pain and seat problems.
I have worked with horses since my youth and also spent two intensive years as a working student in different training stables in Germany, England and France learning about (natural) horsemanship and classsical dressage. I have passed groundwork and longeing test with Bent Branderup (Knighthood of academic art of riding) in 2016 and squire test in 2020 after spending almost 4 months of intensive training in Bent Branderup stable in Denmark.
Everything in art of riding is continuous process, a journey of discovery and awareness of oneself and the horse. I am forever a student myself and contiue to travel every year to Germany, Belgium and Finland to learn from other trainers.
I offer individual lessons and training days (clinics) in:
You can come to me to Tartu, Estonia to a little stable where I work (Sõbra Tall), we have nice atmosphere and indoor arena. I give training days all around Estonia and I am willing to travel abroad. I also teach in Latvia.
I also organize seminars with Reitmeister Marius Schneider (Gestüt Moorhof, Germany) who comes to Estonia for trainingclinic once a year. Infomation about that is HERE
