Experience with Horses

I have traveled many places to become a professional in the horse world. From the sandy planes of the puszta in Hungary (http://homokilodge.com/), the wild coast in South Africa (http://www.wildcoasthorsebackadventures.com/) to the capital of horses: Golegã in Portugal (www.equiliberdade.com), the Californian Riviera (http://santabarbarastables.com) and now back home working as a trainer with Arabian horses in Belgium; I was always inspired and amazed by the many ways of working with horses, the difference in horse breeds and the styles of riding. I have learned from each single place about horses and myself. I love nothing more then to be challenged!

Key Skills

I came in contact with Classical Dressage in Portugal and it stimulated me to master my riding skills and keep on improving. I also work particularly well on the ground with horses, I really enjoy work at liberty. I have gathered experience handling stallions and youngsters and can handle their temperaments with ease and direct them towards better behavior. I can connect with all kinds of horses. Hacking out/trailing is something I do with great confidence. Furthermore, I would say my eagerness to learn is my biggest asset. Last but not least, I do everything with a lot of enthusiasm and a positive mindset!

Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

Feeling the connection with horses, both improving and achieving goals (every time a small step forward, once in a while a step back and when lucky a big leap), becoming one with nature.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I always love to improve my riding and handling of horses, it will be a neverending journey.

• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

My Natural Horsemanship outlook gives me a special edge, I can handle a lot of responsibility, I work well independently as in a team, I am a kind, polite and open person who can deal very well with customers.


• What would you like to do or gain in your next job?

Have the possibility to improve my riding, advance my skills.

• Do you need accommodation?


• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?

Yes, but have a short notice period.

• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
