One of the strongest memories I have from growing up is me sitting in the forest on warm moss covered ground. I am looking at a small peaceful stream of water running past my feet, streaks of sun shining through the firs, everything is calm and quiet. I feel totally taken care of by the forest surrounding me and I have this strong feeling that the earth is talking to me in the most relaxing and soothing way. It felt like coming home. Until the school bell rang and I had to join the other kids in second grade again…
I am a true dreamer and I also see myself as a creative soul and a woman who makes things happen. I have always felt more connected to nature and animals than to people and as a child I prefered to go to my mothers uncle’s barn after school to hang out with the cows and the sheep, rather than hanging out with friends.
When I got the chance to connect with horses, at the age of 9, there was no turning back. Horses have always been a part of my life in some way and what I appreciate the most about them is that they are so honest and true and I have always had the ability to understand them very well.
As an adult I have also had the opportunity to work with dogs and the last 15 years of my life the focus has been more on them than on horses. But my passion for horses is returning more and more and there has always been at least one horse in my life, even though they have been a little bit behind the scenery. But both dogs and horses have a very special place in my heart.
I feel strongly that my journey with the horses has only just begun and that they have a mission in stock for me. I just have to learn how to listen more carefully to find out exactly what my assignment is. Maybe I just need to find that place deep inside that I discovered when my childhood forest was calling me, maybe I will hear the message from the horses more clearly then. I know that I am walking in the right direction, I just need to find the path.
