Horses as Teachers

0

Since 1997 hade I been working with horses in many different countries. I never trained the horse, I trained the humans (owners and groomers) how to get more out from your horse. (And yourself)

Psychology, health, training, competitions, but mostly, communication between each other.

When the horse becomes a machine, and the horse only “stands” there, the danger have occurred.

His spirit is “locked down”! You will never become a better rider (owner) when you stop listening to your beloved team mate.

One groomer put her horse carrots on the ground outside his open box.

He saw them and it was a delightful temptation for him.

Other Horses with their groomers walked by. The horse with his carrots without reach, put his ears back and threaten the passing horses.

He looked like a crazy horse! Evil!

I could see why, but the others didn’t understand him.

The groomer got irritated and slapped him, not ones, but three times, hard in his face.

This is what I teach. The small signs the Animals shows us, the small communication that gives us the big picture. To become a better teammate.

Animals don’t judge. They are actually our teachers and I, am only the translator! It is difficult not to judge, that is why I admire Animals.

We humans, will always be students our whole life!

That’s Amore!

Learn from Nature!

I am feeling so blessed to have our horses at Hirschof (Southern Germany) Every day I go there I can breath and slow down.

Horses are reading us faster than we are trying to describe ourselves to someone.

❤️ Hi Everyone,

First and foremost, I want to thank you that has donated and shared this campaign. GoFundMe<<<<<<<
eason for me starting to rescue horses are many. I love horses, they are not only beautiful but also intelligent as many of you already know.

<<<<<<<
hat many doesn’t know is that after a terrible horse accident when I was 9 years old, made me depressed and terrified for life. I didn’t want to live!

After surgeries, my mom tried so hard to help me. — she joked with me asking if I couldn’t start playing golf. But I wanted to be among horses—

One day she found Hirschof Ridingschool and there was a horse named Sunshine.

He listen too me when I told him about my day. I could cry without him rolling his eyes. Together with him I was in the moment, he brought me back to life.

Miracle is the handsome 26 y old horse that I rescued from Italy. He is amazing and can see when you are sad or happy. He sees your shattered heart.

I want so badly to save Gummi Bear and Rihanna and create, not only a senior retirement place. But for other children with broken hearts that can come out and receive healing from these horses.

I want to give back! Please help me help other children to feel seen and not judged, to feel“I am SomeOne” To meet the best healers.

<<<<<<<
cannot do this by myself. A beautiful child therapist will be part of my team and many other educated people.

Your gift will be given back to both Animals and Children !

From my ❤️

Yours Olivia

Never label a horses character.  They are full of emotions and feelings. Every child is unique, and so is every horse.

Horses Minds and Hearts

You enter the horses mind and hearts respectfully while listening to their wisdom.

You know your knowledge, but the horse knows his potential the best. 

Listen and you will grow!

That’s Amore!

SENIOR SANCTUARY IS BECOMING TRUE

Note to readers; the barbed wire is only symbolic and doesn’t exist.

Everything comes to you when you are ready, and your thoughts are no longer like a ping pong boll game inside your head from doubts. When your thoughts are in peace somewhere else working with something totally different than your dreams.

Our Miracle 26 years old came to us like the biggest surprise ever. I wasn’t looking after a Senior horse. However, we do recall me saying some months ago, when a person asked me why I didn’t ride?–I thought I joked when I answered, ‘I want a very old horse to walk around!”

Little would I have known.

The story that I wrote in my column this Thursday in Swedish, I will absoloutly translate into english, and publish here.

And….. our Senior Sanctuary is becoming true. I want to help as many Seniors as possible to have their last time in life as relaxed and full of love and care as possible.

Together in the stable we got experienced horse people that keeps and eye on our Seniors, and ….. also the best veterinarian team with Veterinarian, Stephanie Spöthl in the front.

We will have more seniors coming up, however, we need you, Friends of AWL, to help us get them up from southern Italy to Southern Germany. Where I, and my team will be ready to give them the best last months/years as possible.
