When I met Hippach I had just started working with horses again. I did not desire a horse of my own. I just wanted to find that piece of myself back, the piece that has horse written all over it. Yes I paint and draw horses with all my heart but I needed to smell and feel horses again! And yes I am a healer for horses but I didn’t really acknowledge that. A long time ago when I lost the horse I loved more than life I threw away the key to my horse heart. So I hoped by being around horses to somehow find that key again. Luckily I found a training stable near me and I started to work there as a volunteer.
In the meanwhile I was exploring the horse world, reading about massage, straightness training and classical dressage. I wanted to find something more I could do with horses. Until the summer of 2015 when I met 3.5 year old Hippach, a troubled horse with behavioural issues and probably in pain. It wasn’t a pretty sight when I first saw him in the grooming box. But in spite of the fight I witnessed, I was immediately intrigued by this big dark gray dressage horse and even more… he called me and I heared him. His eyes told me our story had just begun. Then, totally unexpected and maybe even a bit unwillingly, I found that key and fell in love.
