I See You Now

Bee and the horse

You might have noticed that it was a bit quiet around Nazir and I lately. That’s because I had almost given up. If you have followed my journey, you know that looking for a way how to work with Nazir, and him being totally…

New Home, More Freedom

If you followed my blog for some time you might know that the needs of my horses are always a top priority for me. For years, I have been searching for a stable that would allow the horses to live as naturally as possible,…

Must Be Love

My horse Nazir has a girl friend. Ever since Walia, a beautiful brown mare, has joined the group of horses in the paddock paradise in May, she and Nazir are inseparable. They do everything together: grazing very close to each other, exploring the forest,…

Springtime!

Spring is coming to Warsaw, finally! I grew up in the south west of Germany where winters are very short and mild, so the winter in Warsaw, even if it’s a relatively warm one like this year, feels like an eternity of frost to…

My Horse, My Touch-Stone

This year, I’ve met two of the greatest contemporary classical riders in Europe, Bent Branderup and Marius Schneider. I have started my journey in the academic riding, a journey, which also confronted me with a darker side of myself. With my impatience, ambition, and…

Magic Moment in the Sun

Today, for the first time, Nazir let me sit beside him while he was lying down. So amazing! I should mention that I never see him lie on the paddock or in his box, and he never rolls when I’m standing close by. Which…

Warm Days in January (Stable Zen 4)

You know you live in Poland when you’re calling five degrees Celsius warm… With the weather turning colder again, I want to share some pictures I took last week on a sunny, warm January day. We’re having a mild winter this year, more rain…

Wintertime!

Brrrrr it was cold today at the stable! -10 degrees. I had this great idea of taking my horse for a walk in the snow, but when I went to get him from the paddock, he looked at me like “Well, have fun!” So…

Why Horses are the Better Friends

Horse friendships are about sharing the present moment and giving each other comfort, regardless of size, colour, and breed. If we were able to learn from them and let go of our prejudices and preconceptions, we would find true friendships where we would not…

Letting Go (Stable Zen Part 3)

Do you know the feeling when suddenly something changed in the relationship between you and your horse for the better and it’s hard to put into words? I’m just beginning to realize how much the last three months have changed things between me and Nazir….

Stable Zen Part 2: Being Useful

A few days ago, it was another beautiful autumn day. Nazir dozed in his mini-paddock when I arrived at the stable. The air was warm and the smell of dried leaves and earth made  you suck in every sun ray with the knowledge that…

Girl’s Sunday at the Stable, Part 2

It’s a girl’s Sunday at the stable again! I love that me and Karolina seem to have a habit of driving out to the stable at the weekends. I wanted to post these photos already for three weeks, but you know how it is. With the…
