My Life with Horses

  • About me : living abroad, both as a child and adult, have given me an international spirit and excellent language abilities (Belgium, France, UK, Italy, Spain and USA).

  • Horses have always dominated any spare moment in my life, I actually started riding at the age of 10, doing my first jumping competition when at 12. At 16, my equine training was entirely focused on Dressage and has been ever since.

  • Having attained a university degree in Economics, plus a master in both Accounting, Public Relations and Marketing, my career was destined to be grand and interesting though slightly boring and certainly without horses. In 2007 I attained an Agricultural Certificate with Equine expertise.

  • In 2005 I said goodbye to the private sector and have gone working as Financial & Commercial Director for Global Business Organisation & EUCCE and other Int'l Media & IT oriented projects. This career move has allowed more flexibility for my horses.

  • After an office accident (2000) I became a Para-Equestrian, and after a serious lunging accident in 2016, I saw my Olympic Dreams (RIO 2016) vanish, after surgery I am still working on getting stronger and coping with my injuries, in everyday life as in riding.

  • Since 2005 I started intense training sessions David de Wispelaere (Aachen). (3years). Later on Jan Dupont (Jan & Liselot Dupont), whilst my competition-wise training has been supported by the sadly missed Jan Meersmans (former I.O. Judge). Since 2014 I have been training with fomer Belgian Int'l Grand Prix Rider Mario Van Orshaegen & Mariette Withages. Since the passing of Jan Meersmans, and a a lengthy competition break due to my 2016 accident, I have slowly started training with Int'l Dressage trainer Vicky Smits and thinking about competitions again. 

  • After an office accident (2000) I became a Para-Equestrian, and after a serious lunging accident in 2016 I am still working on getting stronger and coping with my injuries.

  • Regular Training Clinics with various International Riders & Trainers to broaden my skillls : Clive Milkins Int'l Para Dressage Trainer (UK Canadna), Portugees Olympic Dressage Rider Carlos Pinto, Portugees World Champion WE & Int'l Grand Prix Rider Gilberto Filipe Silva.

  • Various clinics : “Centered Riding” Sue Leffler, Canada, Lammert Haanstra(NL) longing techniques. Core Stability with Wouter D'Hoore

  • Through my continues struggles with health issues, my training is under supervision of Kelly Seghers together with her outstanding expertise in health, mobility & morphology Equi-Pura, she takes care of my horses' health as well as guiding me in my riding with regards to my fysical problems





Full body scan with Healy frequency therapy. For both analyzing and treating all systems in the body. Very effective in chronic pain, skeletal pain and mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression.

1st intake assessment and treatment can be coordinated by myself.

Possibility further follow-up treatments with deeper, more specific, cranio-sacral, osteopathy or straightness evaluation is done in cooperation and via Equi-Pura Kelly Seghers (who comes to Spain on a monthly basis) for training & treatments.


The health scan is carried out using the Healy medical device. Healy is a German medically certified device that works with frequency therapy. The leading figures behind Healy's development are Marcus Schmieke and Nuno Nina. Marcus Schmieke is a researcher and inventor of the TimeWaver, which many therapists use in bioresonance. Nuno Nina is a Portuguese specialist in integrative medicine and cell biology.


How does it work?

The basis of the Healy health scan is quantum mechanics that says vibrations are the information carriers of all matter. Each cell in the body has a vibration frequency and a voltage potential. This voltage potential is necessary for the exchange of substances and therefore the health of the cell.


Based on 144,000 different frequencies, the scan can analyze where there is imbalance. He organizes them based on more than 120 programs that he can run within the following groups:

• Gold cycle

• Pain/psyche

• Learning

• Fitness

• Sleep

• Beauty/skin

• Mental balance

• Meridians

• Bioenergetic balance

• Chakras

• Protection programs

• Deep cycle


He can also read the following supplementation: Bach blossoms, homeopathy, vitamins, Australian Bushflowers, Alaskan Gem Elixirs, Schuessler cell salts and I-Ching.

Another useful feature is the Aura analysis that analyzes the current state of the energy field and emotional background



Appointments in Spain will be coordinated by local contact. Possibility for 1st intake or necessary assessment / diagnostics via Healy Treatment prior to the treatment can also be booked through
