About me


Trainee Teacher

A childhood in Amsterdam but with a passion for nature, animals and horse in particular fueled the desire and determination of a lifelong journey with horses. It was my move to beautiful Vancouver Island, Canada in 2001 and the training of a sensitive QH mare that led me onto the path of the School of Légèreté. With lots of riding and studying I was lucky enough to get accepted into the Teachers Course in 2016. The clear and respectful method of Légèreté pushes me to be the best teacher and trainer I can be and so I can hopefully inspire my students in their journey with their horses too.
