I count myself lucky to have been aligned with horses from the age of 14. At the time, I was following a standard German horse path with my first horse & schoolmaster Ankara. A lovely gelding who allowed me to explore the horse world without major difficulties. Today I realise what a gift that was. My passion was dressage and I just loved those moments when we were dancing together.
It was only after I moved to South Africa in my late 20s, that with the appearance of my animal guides my perspective started to shift. My teacher and soul-horse Rohan asks – to this day – many questions and quite frankly I didn’t have the answers to most of them. Whatever seemed “horsie-normal” to me at the time, he questioned. Strongly!
He challenged most of my human requirements & clearly communicated his horsie needs, so that, over time, we could find a new balance and harmony within our relationship.
I realised then that he had entered my life because he wanted me to explore a different way of BEING with & RELATING to horses & all Nature Beings. I followed his invitation and found myself on a path which I call Conscious Horsemanship.
Conscious Horsemanship means seeing the horse holistically, as a physical, emotional and spiritual being. By listening and attentending to the needs on all levels, deep healing and transformation is taking place.
