Horses have been an important part of my life since the age of seven. When I was 15, I met a young, stunning Friesian gelding, seeking my attention in a field in Vestfold, Norway.
A few weeks later, the curious black beauty became my own. Batman is the best coincidence of my life so far. Batman and I have grown extremely close the past seven years, and developed a strong, unbreakable bond. It has been a long journey – two insecure souls not sure about what to do about anything, which grew up together and learned a lot about teamwork, harmony and trust. Combining classical dressage with riding based on equal trust and light signals, we fly through the Norwegian woods with freedom in our minds. Batman is a wise, sensitive and proud horse who stands by my side along the way; no challenge is too big for us.
You can’t force such a huge and magnificent animal into doing anything, you must work together as a team. Equal respect is stronger than any rope.
My goal is to inspire other equestrians to dare to walk in another direction, in order to fulfill their own dreams. Throught my blog and social media, I reach out to over 200 000 horse-lovers world wide every day. I feel extremely grateful, given the possibility to actually help others who is in the same situation as I was a long time ago, to reach their goals together with their beloved horses.
Be brave, fight for what you believe in and make your dreams your reality
