  • " Joёlle`s treatments have had a significant and positive impact on my horses in competition. I have used a lot of physical therapists over the years but I have never seen such a remarkable change in my horses as when Joёlle works on them. Cadillac loves her! "

  • " I am a Belgian dressage rider and member of the Belgian Young Riders dressage team. My trainer is the Belgian top dressage rider Jeroen Devroe. Joёlle is regularly taking care of our successful horses. For the last few years I have been selected for the European Youth Championships together with Noémi Goris and Mieke Mommen also stabled at Jeroen Devroe`s yard. We all have had top results winning gold, silver and bronze medals at the Belgian Championships. Dressage is about the complete picture. Joёlle has been an important part of that team helping our horses to compete at top level. The horses benefit from her treatments. At the Europeans in Broholm I even received the `Classical Style award` among other things because of my horse looking like a happy athlete. "

  • " Reeds van kindsaf ben ik getroffen door het paardenvirus. Vooral de discipline dressuur is een echte passie geworden. Vandaag de dag rijden we op nationaal niveau richting Prix Saint-Georges en willen we telkens beter en bewuster gaan rijden. Een paar jaar geleden hadden we heel wat strubbelingen naar het zoeken van een passend zadel voor mijn toen 7-jarige merrie. Veel zadelpassers zijn over de vloer geweest maar elke keer opnieuw hadden we terug problemen. Paardenfysiotherapeute en MSFC zadlepasser Joëlle Steyt kwam toen op mijn pad en heeft mij enorm geholpen naar het zoeken van een passend zadel. Niet alleen het paard werd bekeken onder de man, maar ook de ruiter. Joëlle helpt mee zoeken naar een oplossing op alle vlakken, wat haar uniek maakt in haar job! We kunnen alleen maar positief zijn over de resultaten want nu, twee jaar later, loopt mijn merrie beter dan ooit. Ze heeft veel meer souplesse, rechtgerichtheid en werklust. Dat resulteert dan ook naar schitterende resultaten op concours! "

  • " I almost gave up on finding a devoted, highly skilled professional with the welfare of my horses at heart, and not handling only in the pursuit of money like a lot of so called ‘therapists’. But then, some years ago, I was introduced to Joёlle and since our first conversation Joёlle has made me more conscious about teaching and training in a way that I could never have hoped for. The hard labour she sometimes does on the horses and riders is priceless. She's the no-nonsense type! Listen to her advice and accept your own and your horses' weaknesses and you will be gratefully rewarded! "

  • " Wij zijn bij Stal Vink altijd heel blij als Joëlle onze stal bezoekt!! Na een zoektocht gezien mijn paard onstabiel op de trailer stond, en ik me zadel ook niet optimaal vond liggen, ben ik in contact gekomen met Joëlle Steyt. Na één behandeling en een nieuw passend zadel was het trailer probleem snel verholpen. We zijn van de klasse Z2 nu een Lichte Tour combinatie en startgerechtigd in de intermediaire. En is me paard rechter, sterker en fijner dan ooit. Ik en me topper We’ll See, maar ook zeker mijn leerlingen, zijn dan ook zeer tevreden over Joëlle der hulp, der luistert oor en al haar advies. Om zo nog beter te presteren, maar zeker ook om onze paarden gezond te houden. Zowel voor de professionele maar zeker ook voor de amateur ruiter-paard een grote aanrader!! "
