I have had a wonderful year. In addition to having the best work in the world and the world's best customers, the year has offered a lot of inspiration in connection with my overshadowing interest - the horses.
At the beginning of the year I had two riding horses and did not really expect that it would be very different. But it did. Today I can ride all 4 horses. This is due solely to Art2Ride.
The horses were until the middle of the year my only coaches except from Art2Rides Youtube channel , and they have been amazing to learn from.
Later I had great pleasure from Art2Rides Associate Trainers and in the autumn I sent my first videos to the founder of Art2Ride William Faerber.
Subsequently, I was admitted to the Art2Ride Associate Trainer Program and is now a trainer at foundation level. This means that I am approved to teach the work in hand, lunging and the basic part of the riding.
It is still unreal to me that the horses have developed so much during this year. And that I have learned so much. I owe William Faerber a big thank you because of this.
I would also like to thank all associate trainers and apprentices for their help, inspiration and challenge. Especially Anne Saari I owe to thank for the help with Noller.
In fact, the entire Art2Ride community has helped and inspired. The fan page on Facebook and my own website has brought me in contact with more Danes who are interested in this training. Which I am hugely pleased with. Thank you for your encouragement and stories about your own horses and the training.
I would also like to thank Peter Horobin Saddlery for making the most amazing saddles. Thanks to Gyde Wessel for all the time she has used to customize my saddle and help me how to use it on the different horses. Without this saddle the horses had not developed as much as they have.
Some things you can not solve with the training alone and I experienced that with Little Girl (Lucky Lady) at the beginning of the year. Helle Kornbek helped us and throughout the year she made sure that all the horses have been fit for fight. Thank you Helle.
Thanks to our faithful farrier for many years, Anders Helge. Never ever will we worry about shooing, lost shoes or waiting times. Always in a good mood, he helps keep track of the most important TV series and make sure we have breakfast
Thank you to our always happy vet Susanne Fønsskov, which we fortunately do not see so often
And last but not least, I would like to thank the world's most wonderful husband Palle. Thank you for the many hours you have spent behind the cameras during this year. Thank you for always convincing me that I can do it, even when I do not believe it myself.
The horses would like to thank you for all the goodies and because you have taught them to kiss, talk, dance, sit nicely, etc.
Crazy kitty - crazy man ❤️

It has been a wonderful year for me and the horses. We are all ready to develop ourselves even more in 2018. I almost can not wait to get started and see what this new year will bring.
I want to stop here wishing everyone a happy and blessed new year.
