Creating a learning atmosphere where both - horse and rider - can be confident and open up to learning is just as important as finding individual solution for every horse-rider-couple. My goal is to help human and equine students learn the skills needed to lay the foundation for true connection and harmonious communication. Although I specialize in the work with gaited horses and dressage all breeds and disciplines are welcome. The inter-disciplinary dialogue can be quite enriching and leads to great results.
I received my trainer license through the German Icelandic Horse Federation IPZV and have been working as a horse trainer and riding instructor since 2004. Regular continued trainings with Master Trainers in Germany as well as clinics and trainings with wonderful horse(wo)men in the US and internationally allow me to be a student myself and continue my learning journey and widen my horizon.
Outside the Icelandic Horse World I have worked with (amongst others):
Lessons can be held in English or German. Knowing how important it is to learn how to ride on a well trained horse, I am offering a limited number of lessons on my own horses.
Helmet mandatory! Our insurance and we require that all riders wear a helmet. Please bring one.
I now offer lessons and clinics at our new farm in Trout Lake, WA. Our 2024 schedule is available under Events! Of course I will continue to be available for offsite lessons and clinics. Get in touch!
