People and Horses
I have always loved animals and grew up with a dog, rabbits and later two parakeets in southern California. However, my university studies in international business took me in another direction for quite some years and in 1993 I moved to Switzerland. It was a few years later that I recognized the potential of having humans interact with horses when I worked with handicapped kids and horses. When I lost my job in 2001 due to a company re-structuring, it was then that I decided to focus on working with people and horses. Thus I spent the next three years on large ranches in France and the U.S. (Colorado, Nevada, Montana) learning about horses – how they think, act and behave. I brought a beautiful black Quarter Horse called Hummer from Montana to Switzerland.
