We invite horses into a close collaboration with human beings. We start a dialogue based on a close connection and the challenge ahead of us. The common challenge of the horse... and the human being.

Already in an early stage, the horse gets confident in having faith in his human partner.

Trust and collaboration in return for life-saving care. There are many ways to train horses, and we have developed ours: it's a process driven by love. Love is a 'do-it-word'; it includes at least protection and care. Christel de Wette is both; the one who convinces by putting love into action and... and at the same time she is the horse's greatest advocate I've ever met.
