The return of Gaia

Heart connections are forever. Yesterday I meet Gaia after 4 years. She was stolen from our center in 2012. When I saw her I called her, she called me. It was very beautiful and touching. Even though she lost some body weight she had not lost her beautiful mind and spirit. I will soon share…

When I meet the horses I saw something I had never seen before

Awareness. I came to St. Vincent horse school because I want to learn how to develop a real connection with my horses. After just one week I have learned already so much! I have two miniature horses. Every day I spend lots of time with them to provide in their needs, but I’m missing something….

Achieving a State of Calm

The Waterhole Rituals and the Lead Mare Lessons can create a a mutual trust and forever loyalty with a horse. Learning these skills also help us how to better communicate with other humans and other beings. There is a fine balance between the pause, the acting, the support, leading, following, speaking and listening;  all this, we…

2017 – Fifty, Fat and Finished…or..

Fifty, Fit and Fantastic? Starting the new year, I realized I am going into my fiftieth year and I had to make some new decisions to be better fit for riding. The first one was to shred some weight that had sneaked on in 2016 and the second was to once again exercise my riding…

Petra: No big discussion, no drama, no impatience

I came to St. Vincent and the Grenadines with big expectations. Since my childhood I live together with horses and those beautiful animals have always inspired me to search for new ways to be and communicate with them. As the commercial way of training horses doesn’t please me, I tried a lot of different methods…

My Journey to Trim (1)

My horses are “left over” from an abandoned equestrian center in the 90’s. We rescued them 2007 and it took a year to get the horses healthy. The horses were dewormed, we set up paddocks and pastures, stallions were fixed and we made the first few steps to connect with the herd. I set up…

I cannot teach you how to ride..

What I can do is to share with you our journey, as happy amateurs on an island with no riding instructors, on untrained horses,  how we connected under saddle. I think it is only nice to ride a horse if the horse would like to ride with you. Here are some videos how we started our horses under saddle….
