The widespread success being achieved with aquatraining is making it increasingly popular. There is a drawback to this success, however. An aquatrainer is a piece of equipment that requires knowledge and expertise. Unfortunately, lack of knowledge means that in practice a lot of horses are being trained incorrectly, with all the consequences that this entails. Horses’ well-being is Leen Soldaat’s top priority, and we are keen to halt this undesirable trend in the market by offering knowledge and training. What’s more, research and experience are generating an ever greater body of knowledge, which Leen Soldaat is keen to make accessible to everyone.
The training is intended for anyone interested in aquatraining or regularly working with an aquatrainer, such as riders, stable managers, grooms, veterinary assistants, vets and veterinary physiotherapists.
Owners of a different brand of aquatrainer to the iDots aquatrainer are very much welcome too. The course is divided into four different levels and specialisations.
The iDots Aquatrainer Academy is an initiative of Leen Soldaat and his team of Aquatrainer Specialists: Morgan Lashley (vet), Beatrijs Bunte (certified veterinary physiotherapist) and Evelyne van Mol (certified veterinary physiotherapist). At the Aquatrainer Academy, you can follow a variety of training sessions and courses at different levels.
