Who we are

The Equine Sport Sport Academy is the brainchild of Tamar Van Wezel. Tamar is the owner and operator of Equine Sport Support in Roswinkel, Netherlands.

We bring you in touch with top quality instructors from all around the Netherlands.

Choose from veterinary advice or riding instruction, and follow our guide to make a great video. Once you submit a video we treat it as strictly confidential. The video will only be assessed by your chosen expert. However, occasionally we may feel a different member of our team would be more suitable to help you. As such we may suggest a change, however the final decision always rests with you.

The more information you can provide us with the more you will get from the session. So please be generous when you fill out the form before submitting your videos. Please make sure you read our video guide before you start. Make sure you have a friend to help you, who is familiar with making videos.

 

We also feel that remote examination by our specialised veterinary surgeons can be of huge benefit*. This is especially true for unusual situations such as non specific lameness cases. Our vets are also available for any questions you may have regarding day to day care of your horse.

The report we will send you is designed to help you . The team at Equine Sport Academy will be here to answer any questions you may have and we will help you to move forward with your ridden work.
