My name is Eda Vallimäe and this is my webpage about the academic 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. And therefore, one of my big passions with riders is seat training. 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. Course will end with a Diploma (to be attained in 2018). My reasearch work for MSc degree has been on Estonian female equestrians low back pain and seat problems.
I give seat training lessons (no matter the discipline) for people with their own horses. I also teach natural horsemanship and academic art of riding (by Bent Branderup). I have 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).
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 to Germany, Belgium and Finland to learn from other trainers.
I give individual lessons near Tartu and training days all around Estonia.
I also organize seminars- Reitmeister Marius Schneider (Gestüt Moorhof, Germany) comes to Estonia for trainingclinic once a year. Infomation about that is HERE
