Sandra Mauer / Founder
Horses have always been my great passion. In 1996 the Rhineland-German cold blood gelding Arthur came into my life as the first horse of my own. Here, however, I often reached my limits and had to assert myself against refusing to dressage- ride a cold-blooded horse instead of trying to draft the horse in front of the carriage. I was looking for a casual dressage training, but with a horse that was not created for dressage. The riding accompanied me intensively alongside my full-time job as a nurse, as well as a studied nurse and quality management officer.
In 2004 my love for nature led me into the cold blood horse scene, into a 5-year collaboration in ecological horse-operated agriculture and forestry and into self-employment. During this time I started teaching as mobile trainer, wrote a book, published in 2008, wrote content for horse magazines and organized my first horse events with around 600 visitors.
In 2009 my life took a decisive turn. With the takeover of a horse-facility, my work developed into europeanwide teaching and the development of trainers (Train the Trainer), as well as further eventmanagement. In addition to my full-time job as a trainer and coach, in 2011 I had the experience of becoming the mother of a wonderful daughter.
In 2017, however, my life took a fateful turn and I started to work in healthcare again. Last but not least, it was my daughter who expressed the wish for a horse in 2018 ... In 2019 I resumed my original thoughts of a training concept for riders and my original orientation.
