About us


Natural Horsemanship, Education, Biodynamic Agriculture, Reiki, Animal Communication

Trained in Natural Horsemanship (Parelli NH, Académie de Firfol, J-François Pignon, Ken Faulkner), with a background in Psychology, Alternative Education, Storytelling and Shamanic Healing as well, MARIE has developed an approach that touches many levels of development and tailors to suit each individual and their needs.


Marie is qualified in Biodynamic Agriculture and incorporates BD practices both in the care of the horses and land and in the structure of her teaching. Goethean Science is part of the Holistic Horsemanship programme, and Marie created the first Natural Horsemanship training specifically designed for working horses.

Marie is also trained in Animal Communication and is a Reiki L2 practitioner.


She has been a student of the Alexander Technique for several years.
