Aagje Hardeman (1986) graduated from Utrecht University in 2012, as Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Afterwards, she did the BackBone Academy in Germany, to become a certified equine chiropractor.
In 2014, she moved to Germany to work at Tierklinik Lüsche, one of the biggest referral clinics in Europe, where she has been part of the orthopaedic and rehabilitation team. Simultaneously, she did her PhD, supervised by Prof. Dr. Rene van Weeren (Utrecht) and Prof. Dr. Lars Roepstorff (Uppsala). Her entire PhD was focussed on the clinical application of quantitative gait analysis in horses. She defended her dissertation in 2021 at Utrecht University.
After moving back to the Netherlands, she started her own business DataHorse, which focusses on the clinical implication of quantitative gait analysis in several clinics and practices, as well as for individual patients.
Grown up between horses and being a dressage rider (PSG level), instructor and judge herself, she is well-motivated to share her knowledge about locomotion and performance in horses.
