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…

Reaction vs Response

Whether a horse is reacting or responding to an aid actually makes a big difference in our training. During my first internship at Bent Branderup’s, Christofer Dahlgren spoke to us one evening about the difference between reaction and response, an idea which changed my…

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…

Why don’t you sell your horse?

…is a question I get every now and again from friends and students. What they all refer to is the fact that Nazir cannot be “used” like other horses. Due to his past and also his physical condition, he simply cannot be trained like…

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,…

Horsefulness Liberty Training Program by Karine Vandenborre

If you follow my blog you know that training my horse Nazir is not always a Sunday walk in the Park. By now, I know that I have sometimes failed to interpret his behaviour correctly in the past and that I would like to develop a…

When a horse decides to give you his best
