Marieke was terrified of riding horses for years. It wasn’t just the strength and speed that horses
have that scared her. The fear was deeper. Afraid to lose control, no trust in her own abilities and
scared to lose the trust between her and the horse. Riding is absolutely not the most important thing
for Marieke, but when she is on an adventure together with a horse she feels free and at the same
time more connected than ever to nature and life.
After Marieke did all the inner work to get over her fears, she started Happy Horse Academy. The
place where people and horses are listened to. Where feelings such as fear, anger and insecurity do
not have to be hold down. This is a place where there is room to be who you are. With everything
you feel. For people ánd for horses. With the Happy Horse Academy Marieke helps people reconnect
with themselves and their own pure soul. So that they can start to feel that pure, beautiful
connection with their horse directly from the heart.
