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.
I have 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.
Have taken part Centered Riding OPEN clinics and planned to do the instructor course aswell (course coming up at the end of 2020).
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
