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
that have lost their faith in people and because of that exhibit
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.
Blaze and I are making great progress. Our relationship is better than ever, and we are enjoying the Liberty journey. I am so grateful to have found this, it was exactly what we needed! Incidentally, I was recently invited to observe a clinic that made me even more grateful, as the clinic was about “Forcefulness”, definitely not Horsefulness! It’s sad to me that dominance and fear-based training are still popular, but I do know many compassionate horse owners and I hope to be a positive influence.
Dear Karine, thank you for all your support which is a big win for me and for thousands of people and horses. It's the answer to the disorientation and all the questionable dogmas which still rule the horse world. I t shows a new, silent, harmonic and deeply fulfilling way to become aware of that what is really important in the relationship with our horse partners. It just makes THE difference. I am so grateful for all the insights it gave and still gives me. Thank you so much!
I was 13 and rode a horse for the very first time. I was immediately hooked and from that moment on I could only think of horses, horses, and more horses. Very soon I knew that I wanted to devote my whole life to them, there was no doubt about that. Only, my environment would not go along with it...
“You always remain so calm and patient when working with horses, also in challenging situations. How do you do that?” The answer is very simple: I just know that things will get better and a solution is on its way. This will be within 5 minutes, the next day, within the next week, or within a few months.
Tip #1 - When a horse doesn't feel a connection with you, when the
relationship is not strong, it will be harder/more difficult to train
your horse in groundwork. It's logical: the more trust, the deeper the
connection, the more your horse will be willing to do things together
with you ...
"I'm very emotional, and my horse feels that. How can I be less emotional?" "I'm too sensitive and soft to be able to train my horse well. How can I be more firm?" "Whenever I'm stressed I start to cry. And this also happens when I'm with my horse. I don't want my horse to think I'm weak."
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
what steps you should take so that your horse can develop into a calm
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.
