"Inspired by our own journey of following our dream, creating a balanced lifestyle and forever learning from
and for our horses we love to inspire others on their path of personal discovery"

Our passion is to make the world a little bit better for horses. Although our passion is idealistic and we can only make it a little bit better, we believe that every little bit helps. We believe we can help by teaching riding and horsemanship lessons, training horses, offering a safe haven to troubled horses and sharing what we learn along the way on our equestrian lifestyle blog to inspire others to make the world a bit better for horses.

We strive to be a safe place for humans and horses. A safe place to learn and grow.



With our extensive knowledge of equine body language, biomechanics and psychology, and our experience in helping "problem" horses and traumatized horses find their way again, and getting their trust in people back, we are confident we can help your horse.



Teaching, helping people and horses, is our absolute passion! We are proud to be teaching in an empathetic, horse friendly and professional way. We teach groundwork and riding lessons to both kids and adults.

Over the years of running our ranch we have always taken in horses that have lost their way and needed help. We are exited to start setting up programs to be able to this on a larger scale. More info will follow soon!

It all started with our big move and lifestyle change, from city life in The Netherlands to connecting with nature on our ranch in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. 

A balanced lifestyle, living more mindful and our continued learning from and for our horses has inspired our blog. 

Check out our unique lifestyle blog for and insight into our lives here on the ranch, recipes, horse training tips and stories and to follow our journey into a more balanced and mindful life.
