Horses and horsetraining are my greatest passions. In my own riding I focus on balance and lightness. Both from a horse and a riders individual point of view, but more important, as a unit. Riding and horsetraining should be fun! For both of us!  A pursuit of balance and equilibrium in both horse and human. 

In the begining of my education I wanted to study hippology and become a more traditional horsetrainer. That changed 2001, when I started training Academic Art of Riding thaught by Katrin Wallberg. For some years I explored this woth my islandic horse Kolskeggur. This in turn led me to find Christina Drangel from Drangelska Ridinstitutet. Christina has developed my feeling and structure and has given me many different tools to work with. I attended to her education in the Integrated Art of Riding between 2008-2011. Integrated Art of Riding originate from the principles of classical dressage and the goal is that all training should add value for the horse. 

Around this time I also came in contact with longreining work and I for 2 years I was a part of a training group led by the dutch Piet Bakker. A lovely horsetrainer. Some of us rom that group continued educating ourselfs togheter, focusing instead on the teaching part.
 

It is my horse Koppar is the one who showed me the way to new education and he was the one who made me start training reward based in 2012. This with much help and guidance from  Carolina Thyselius- Fransson. This changed both my life and the life of my horses a lot and probably is the most important thing to happen in my horselife. It has not been an easy cross over but very educational. To learn even more and to be able to educate others I have also studied with Carolina in her online education. Back then, a year long distance education that really improved my structure and set up, working towards a more pedagocial way to explain to both horses and humans.

Since I did not want to loose contact with my roots in the art of riding, I also arranged a 2 year long education in the Academic Art of Riding with  Hanna Engström as instructor. Hanna has developed my eye for small details and a focus on hom much change small things can bring to the larger picture. Hanna also made me more aware of both my own and my horses body.

At the moment I immerse myself in the rewardbased horsetraining with the amazing people at Connection Training. I am studying to become a Connection Training Coach and during this year I have met  fantastic people from all over the world. In 2018 I will be a part of a new organisation in Sweden. Our aim is to spread positive reinforcement as a trainingmethod and to provide support, motivation and information for horsepeople looking for different ways to train and socialize with their horses.
