Since I can remember I have always felt a deep connection with animals.
When I was a child, all I wanted to do is to go outside in nature to be with the animals.Â Soon I fell in love with horses and the journey of finding myself began.
When I got my own horse, she was nothing like the horses I was used to ride with. I started to look more at people doing horsemanship and groundwork with their horses.
As a teenager, I was busy following classes and lessons with different horseman learning more about horses and their behavior. When I got my second horse I experimented with bitless riding and positive reinforcement.
After I graduated I followed a professional bachelor in agriculture and biotechnology to become a vet assistant. I started working at an office job and gave lessons to people who had trouble with their horse.
My herd expanded with 4 other horses and quickly I felt that my mind and my intuition came in conflict. Everything I learned sometimes didn’t feel good when I was helping horses. In that moment, I had the chance of following a clinic with Noora Enqhvist. Thanks to her and this experience, I started to work with horses like I always wanted and like I did when I was younger, from my heart and intuition.
After two years I started to loose my creativity and motivation at my office job. I was ready for the next step in my life and to do what I was meant to be doing. I changed my life, gave up my office job and became a full time horse instructor. When I saw how many horse owners had problems in the relationship with their horse, I started to educate myself more in the way our soul, spirit and body works.Â I was intrigued by what happened to our connection with horses when we become more aware about our body and mind. I started to follow courses in body awareness and graduated as a certified yoga instructor.
Next to this, I developed my knowledge about healing and participated in a course about aromatherapy with horses. I am now guided by Kaftan Mama whoÂ guides me with the oils and how to use them. I graduated as a certified energetic animal healer and completed my Reiki 1.Â I started a course about Triggerpoint,Â Bach Flower Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. At the moment I am studying Equine Acupressure at the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute in America.Â My life goal is guiding horses and their owners to a happy life by giving them the opportunity to understand each other and communicate with each other.
