Thalya Willems is a qualified veterinary assistant. During her education, her interest in ridingproblems and the physical consequences of this was awakened. During and after her education she has done several internships abroad to get acquainted with classical and academic art of riding, something she is still busy with every day and continues to learn in this way. She has done internships by Ylvie Fros and Bent Branderup.
However, the appetite for knowledge had not been satisfied yet. Because Thalya noticed that many horses not only experienced problems due to the used riding technique, but also due to badly fitting saddles and physical blockages, she decided to continue her education. In November 2016, she graduated with a degree as a Jack Meagher therapist.
In June 2017 she graduated as a saddlefitter from Master Saddle Fitting Consultants.
