Going beyond second chances

It is amazing how a nice experience can change your perspective about things, persons or, in this case, animals. As I shared in my last blog entrance about second chances with horses, it is wonderful how feelings can change in such a positive way. I was not scared anymore about getting close to these medieval…

Learning a New Language

One day, before I began training the horses at HH Sensing, I stopped to watch the foals born in the barn where my business is located. One more time I got reminded of how many things, that are learned when you’re very young, follow you for the rest of your life. Anyone, child, adult or…

Beyond The Leader

There is a lot of talk in the horse world about leadership: What leadership is, who is the leader, if there is leadership in a horse herd, how to be a leader, leadership styles and if there should be a leader at all. I find this discussion very interesting and here is my take on…

Mindful Therapy, Colombus and Clinics

I am happy to announce that I will do a clinic at Marjam’s Ranch, close to Gardermoen in Norway the 26th and 27th of September. Marjam got in touch with me and was looking for ways to improve the connection with her horse. We talked for a while on FB and email and decided to do…
