Very early on I only wanted one thing: to learn how to ride a horse. At the age of twelve I got my first horse and that was the beginning of a promising career as a show jumper.
But a serious traffic accident in 1995 changed everything. Since that day I have been in a wheelchair, running is impossible. But my passion for riding and horses remained. My horses are my anchor and my source of strength and inspiration. And so, after my accident, I began to look for new ways to follow my path.
It wasn't always easy, more low blows followed. But today I work as a trainer, author and give lectures all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I train horses of different ages and training levels and also give seminars and coaching sessions on personality development, motivation and inspiration. Both in my work as a horse mediator and in my lectures, I pass on my experiences with great pleasure. Success is the compelling consequence of perserverance and I know that everyone can do it. My goal is to create a new understanding for the well-being of horses and at the same time show people how much potential there is in each of us.
But it is not only professionally that I am always on the move. I prefer to spend my free time with my partner, my horses or ride a bicycle with my little dog Mia. There is no such thing as giving up for me. I get where I want to be and my new wheelchair pull device is a relief in everyday life. It's small, handy, manoeuvrable, a lot of fun and also a real alternative to the car.
