I founded Horse Conversations to offer horses and their owners a new angle of their relationship. Times are changing and riders finally see in their horses more of a friend than a just a sports equipment. That's great and pays off! A strong bond and good communication ultimately lead to a better performance and certainly more value for both rider and horse.
I work only with freedom based and respectful methods, compiled from my rich experience with different disciplines, visions and goals. Horse Conversations stands for the conversations with horses that are made possible through body language and self-reflection.
I believe that the equestrian world develops there, for recreational riders and riding schools as well as in sports and professionals. With my work I would like to contribute and improve the quality of the life of horses, but also that of their owners.
Training and coaching therefore belong together for me. It's for both continuous learning and a lot of awareness.
Are you ready?
I involve the owners at every stage of the training process and I find that with this holistic approach, owners benefit just as much, if not more, than their horses from this. Find out more about my unique combination of training and coaching.
Driven by my passion, I have worked and trained with horses since my early childhood.
I was allowed to get to know many different approaches and I was able to find and create my own style.
In Germany I learned the art of Natural Horsemanship.
In Spain I was allowed to look behind the scenes of horse breeding.
In Italy I guided horseback riding and gave riding lessons.
In the Netherlands I studied applied psychology,
I obtained the Reiki grade 2 with specialization for animals
and further develop myself as an Equine Bodyworker.
Since October 2021 I am trained as a systemic horse coach.
Since June 2022 I study at the ATN Academy to become a Horse Behavior Consultant.
My greatest teachers have always been the horses. Without support from my background, I started working at riding schools as a child to earn my riding. And later as a permanent co-rider I always had those horses that were "not easy". Young horses, old horses, sick horses and also stallions.
I got the chance to train and guide young horses as well.
From that arose my passion for working on the hand and from the ground. Here you meet a horse at the same level and therefore also yourself.
WHY NO ORUN?
About diplomas and visions
First of all, there are only a few official KNHS diplomas that support groundwork and work on hand.
And those that exist are therefore linked to the conditions, vision and working method of the KNHS.
That is nice and fine for those who want to work that way.
My view, however, is far from it. I mainly work freely or with few resources. I prefer to work bitless and treeless, just to name the biggest difference. For me it's about connection, not about performance. That's why a KNHS diploma is for me neither possible nor necessary.
I create trust in my clients with experience, expertise and precisely the vision of a violence-free approach of dealing with horses and by putting their needs in the foreground. And taking a course for a few weeks doesn't change that - except that I would have to go beyond my own moral limits.
Of course I will always continue to train and develop further, I discuss my working method with other professionals, I stay informed about equine psychology and physiology and I also look to visions beyond mine to ensure quality and safety. Whether you prefer an ORUN as a client or not is your free choice.
