First of all, I want to say that it is very difficult for me to write something about myself in English.
It even has kept me from writing a topic, because I am afraid of making stupid mistakes..
However, I persuade myself today and now I'm typing
Allright, to the point
I'm a nineteen year old girl from Holland, and for a long, long time I have a great passion for horses.
However, most girls who love horses in Holland go to the riders school (is that the right subsciption in English?) we call in 'manege' in Holland.
But because my parents thought it was too expensive, they didn't let me go.
Today I am actually thankfull for that, because I think that I never had learn Natural Horsemanship if I was went to the riding school in my younger years.
When I was 15 years old, I decided to earn some money so I could pay the riding school lessons myself.
I hoped I should found the same girls as me; full of passion for horses, to feel the horse and to start a journey together.
But I was so disapointed, I found nothing of the things I was hoping for.
The girls all got there to ride
the horse, not to have a partnership
with the horse..
I never went back there.
From that they I searched on the web and in the library for articles and people who were searching for the same thing as me: a partnership with a horse..
I found many things, and I've been reading many different theories for years now. Since I were 14/15 years old. (5 years)
Finally I can buy a horse myself, he is 2 years old, his father is an Arabian horse and his mother a Haflinger.
But I really don't know where to start now. Or maybe I know too much..
I mean.. You have Parelli, Monty Roberts, Nevzorov, Klaus Ferdinant Hempfling, AND, etc...
I think I will start with Parelli (I have the levels on DVD) but actually I want to do AND as well.
But I don't know how to mix it in a cind of way..
I hope you can help me though this forum..!
Ps; I'm sorry if I used the wrong words or orthography..
Pss: Some pictures with me and horses I have taken care of:
