FROM LONGING TO VOCATION
Animals and especially horses have always fascinated me and have magically attracted me from a very young age. I chose to spend time with them with every chance I got. And so it came with no surprise that after graduating from high school I answered the question of what I wanted to do with my life with "Definitely something with horses!"...
No obstacle that I encountered along the way was too big to overcome. After various internships, I obtained an education as an equine professional with strong emphasis in breeding and husbandry. Since I always had a strong passion for western riding, I got my first job as an assistant trainer with a well-known western horse trainer, who was riding for the German national team at that time.
After about two years in the international equestrian sport business, I realized that my passion was much more about the health and vitality of the horses than about winning ribbons and trophies. I remembered why I had actually started working with horses: Because I love them!
Health is not always achieved through medicine alone. More often, it is a direct result of inner stillness and peace in heart and soul. It is a result of laughter and love.
The intimate and loving contact with the horses, which was so important to me, was increasingly lost due to the daily pressure of the routine in the show ring. And so I reoriented myself and turned to those horses whose health could not withstand the pressure of the show industry.
I founded a rehabilitation center for horses and with my team of veterinarians, osteopaths and farriers, I took care of all those horses that came to us with unexplained lameness and chronic health conditions. Many of these animals had already been deemed incurable by the vet, so called hopeless cases. Nevertheless, we had a success rate of over 90% in rehabilitation.
Each one of these horses that crossed paths with me in my career became one of my teachers and provided layers of insights into the complexities and interrelations of equine health, nutrition, science of anatomically correct movement, hoof health and husbandry. In order to be able to help even more precisely, I studied energetic equine osteopathy, natural hoof treatment and other therapeutic modalities.

I began my study of spiritual healing methods to integrate body, mind and spirit. I know that the interconnection of these components is far greater than that which is visible on the surface. We focus our healing efforts on more than on the physical body.
This laid the foundation for energetic healing and animal communication in my work with the horses and thus I developed an even more holistic and multi-layered approach in most recent years.
Since 2016 I offer mobile services and visit horses for bodywork and therapy. I also advise and educate horse owners on common topics such as nutrition, husbandry, hoof health and communication.
I also offer online consultations. Learn more about my services here.
