Kim-Jo Kesteloot

Poulains, that’s me and my team. From scratch when I was able to ride, I’ve been ‘bitten’ by the holy horse disease.
Since years I’ve been building my professional career, within the thing that lies closest to my heart: Creating harmonie trough understanding and sportsmanship between horse and rider.
Countless courses and equine educational self study  brought me to where I am today.
To be able to spread the word and travel te globe for getting the message out there. That communication, understanding though psychology is the base of good horsemanship that transfers to sportsmanship and performance.
