I’m a professional horse trainer and instructor and expert in relational and training problems between horses & humans.
Since I started working with horses professionally when I was 18, I have immersed myself in the behavior of horses and how to communicate with them so that they understand, trust and respect you.
I am known for my horse-friendly handling and training of traumatized horses

extremely fearful or defensive behavior.
I work with these horses at liberty and in this way, I give them back their self-esteem, self-confidence and trust in humans.

I am so grateful for all the insights it gave and still gives me. Thank you so much!
I recently had a conversation with a new student.

Some days, some situations, and some experiences can be difficult... You might wonder how you will cope with it, or if you will be able to solve the problem you're facing. This is also the case when it comes to horses and training horses...
Horses are intelligent creatures and are able to find solutions to problems, challenges or questions they are faced with. Take simply the fact of putting on a halter. What often happens is that the trainer brings the halter up to the head.
It has now been 1 week since my family and I returned home from a month-long road trip to and through Portugal. The trip was fantastic, and we made a lot of great memories. However, there's 1 memory I don't like to think back on ...
Young horses can be very energetic and boisterous. Because of that, you
may start to have doubts about how best to handle your young horse and

and reliable horse. A horse that is safe to handle and a pleasure to work
In this free training, I want to put you on the right track with the pdf "7 Tips For The Training Of Your Young Horse", and the 5 part video series. This will give you the confidence, insights, and clarity you need to do it yourself instead of handing over your horse to someone else.
