What were your lessons in 2020? What are your goals for 2021?

Don’t be afraid, this is not another coaching -post. I believe you are absolutely capable of living your live well 😉 Too many of the post that are around try to make us feel as if we are lacking something, and they try to… Continue Reading “What were your lessons in 2020?

Accepting the Character of Your Horse

For me, the secret for a good relationship with a horse is a bit like the one for a good marriage: you accept each other the way you are.  You meet the (wo)man of your dreams, you fall in love, you get married, you… Continue Reading “Accepting the Character of Your Horse”

Is Your Cup Full?

I find that I mostly meet two kinds of students: the ones whose “cup is full”, and the ones whose “cup is empty”. You probably know that zen story about the master who keeps pouring tea into the cup of his prospective student, and… Continue Reading “Is Your Cup Full?”

My Own Little Stable

As some of you might have noticed, we changed places yet again. This time I hope it’s going to be for longer, because I have rented a little stable myself. Together with my friend Anna, we were already on the lookout for a suitable… Continue Reading “My Own Little Stable”

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,… Continue Reading “Must Be Love”

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… Continue Reading “Springtime!”

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… Continue Reading “My Horse, My Touch-Stone”

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… Continue Reading “Magic Moment in the Sun”
