  • Description


    I live on my own on the farm, It is a peacful place with love for nature and animals.I had a horse training stables, but am now retired.(I am 68) The stables I ran were all about the well-being of the horses and teaching people about that. I gave clinics and training to people and horses. I use essential oils, homeopathic remedies to care for the animals. Before I started the stables I worked 30 years in big international companies in human resources. I spent a student year in California after highschool and lived 2 years in Australia.
    I have a sister who comes regularly and helps out in the garden where she can. She is a gardener by trade and also retired.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in a rural area, beautiful nature and I can teach you about animal care in a holistic way, so I care for their physical, mental en emotional health, their all-around wel being and try to do the same for the dog and cats. We could do ground work with one or 2 horses and learn about what the horses show us, communicate to us. I can teach you Dutch and if necessary English and I can show you around in the area .
