Anke grew up in Germany where she learned to ride as a child spending hours in the arena and out on riding trails in the forest.
Riding her bike to the stables while keeping her hands in her pockets against the cold helped develop her balance ‘I learned to steer my bike with my seat and balance similar to riding a horse – the more balanced your seat, the more balanced your horse.’
Working with horses Anke found that the safer a horse feels, the more they are happy to hang around and learn. Horses that are in balance and in harmony with their rider are a such a pleasure to watch. The horse starts to shine and dance with a sparkle in their eyes. They look after their rider and, as long as the rider looks after them, it is a wonderful and ever-growing partnership.
By now you can tell my work is my passion and I have spent years acquiring knowledge on all aspects of the horse as well as the art of riding.
Anke keeps studying and learning, to improve her own and her students riding and their horses. Subjects like biomechanics, physiology, neurology, mindset, movement, Feldenkrais, saddle fit, soundness and conformation are some of her interests. Her approach is always holistic for both horse and rider.
