Better Performance, Greater Confidence, a Healthier and Happier You!

A balanced seat and a balanced horse equal a balanced mind, body and soul. Whatever your discipline, if you are looking for someone who works with you and your horse with empathy, softness and understanding, Anke can help. Said to be a “tough cookie with an extra dose of compassion”, Anke will meet you where you are and help you soar to the heights of where you want to be!

Anke is a Certified Connected Riding® Practitioner. Her work with horses and their riders is based upon the philosophy of Peggy Cummings’ Connected Groundwork and Riding®. Taking into account both the horse's and the rider's mind, body and emotional freedom, Anke helps both bodies move forward with fluidity, free of tension or brace. Your horse will be happier on the ground and under saddle by learning proper movement and impulsion. Riders will learn how to guide their horses using gentle and efficient aids to achieve the correctness and self-carriage required for consistent and proper movement.

By focusing on a deeper understanding of what each body needs rather than a methodology, Anke is able to guide and coach both horse and rider gently forward. This creates greater confidence and a mutual understanding to be successful. Regardless of discipline, Anke is able to add value to whatever the horse and rider team are looking to achieve with authenticity, and kindness. 

Through Connected Groundwork and Riding® instruction, Health and Life coaching, Intuitive Energy Healing and a lifetime of being with horses, Anke’s mission is to help you realize and fulfill your dreams with your horse.
