Happy second advent! I just realised I forgot to light the second candle today so I do this now, cosy times with christmas lightning although we've had outstanding weather here and my front door has been wide open until 6m!

This weekend I have selected new exciting PRE movement talents, trained the boys, went to a dinner concert and had visitors from Norway and Madrid- busy days are good days! Hope you had a great weekend too!!

And here's a greeting from Margaretha in Sweden who bought a PSG PRE this year;

Just want to write and tell how grateful I am for my beloved Nero. He has now been with me just over three months, and begin increasingly to get acclimatised. Kinder horse is hard to find, he is very social and friendly. Always ears forward and happy and willing to work, but at the same time very delicate. He is teaching me the button locations, and the riding just keeps getting better and better. There is a horse that always wants to please his rider and work as a team. It's always a bit of a lottery when buying a horse. Who is the individual and we will fit together? But I must say that Viktoria did the right match!

Best regards from Margaretha.

'Vill bara skriva och berätta vad tacksam jag är för min fina Nero. Han har nu varit hos mig drygt tre månader och börjar alltmer acklimatisera sig. Snällare häst får man leta efter, han är mycket sällskapssjuk och social. Alltid öronen framåt och glad och arbetsvillig, men samtidigt jättekänslig. Håller på att lära mig var knapparna sitter, och ridningen blir bara roligare och roligare. Det är en häst som alltid vill göra sin ryttare till lags. Det är ju alltid lite av ett lotteri när man köper häst. Vad är det för individ och kommer vi att passa ihop? Men jag måste säga att Viktoria prickade rätt i matchningen! 
Bästa hälsningar från Margaretha'

Happy monday, glorious winter has just arrived to Guadarrama sun, blue sky and snowy mountains, how does it get any better than that?!

Back from the best ever SICAB. F a n t a s t i c horses, just mesmerizing animals and the way they are being presented in this incredibly artistic way only spaniards know how to. I have selected new breeders and horses that made a great impression with a professional point of view. Personally I had so much fun I stayed another day just couldn't leave in the middle of the party and wow what a party!!! People letting go having fun and being themselves, so thank you so much everyone (you know who you are) for being you, you make all the difference!!!

Here a collection of some of my best impressions from SICAB 2015!

Hello from a autumn Madrid, have had some busy and lovely days with visit from a client that converted into a genuine friend, started to breed with the herd of PREs I sent to her over some 7 years, in the very north of Sweden where she lives with her family, home of the beautiful aurora borealis, santa claus and the reindeer! After my experience with the product ASEA we are now also collaborating with this business, I am dedicating some of my time to get this product on the spanish market as I believe we ca all benefit from better health, a residual income based on cooperative networking,. It's fun!

I want to congratulate Team Capriole Farms for their achievments and excellent results with their two Vikinga selected dressage PRE stallions in the US Copa USPRE! Now part of the USPRE Dressage Team!! 

Go Kate and Julie!


This weekend was time for Donoso VII to do his first Intermedia I. We drove 35 min up the road and didn't have to stay over which was great because I don't like to leave my horses anywhere. We arrived late so just unloaded and got up riding straight away. Luckily D is 100% with me no fuss and makes everything, relaxed and easy. I was not nervous just enjoying and so was D. Starting the PSG the sky opened, bring it on,. and whilst I was trying to grip the wet slipping reins Donut just went for it and did his best test ever!!! What a feeling! Next day in Int I we had a very heavy muddy arena but despite this he did a great test, nailed all trot extentions, tempi-twos and pirouettes, he was tired but he delivered - my hero! Amazing horse all the way, how I wish that everyone could get a horse with the same type of connection we have, it's simply the best!

Autumn is good and fresh, Start is peeled and with his thick rug on. SICAB is pinned on schedule and Donoso is signed up for his first Intermedia I! D absolutely did not like his new gorgeous perfectly fit Aurigan Sprenger curb bit as much as I did, he want his old one slightly to big and alittle bent. OkOk I hear you, old one it is. 

One of Donoso's USA born sons are now sold to Florida, amazing little gorgous guy we look forward to his development and career, congrats to new owners!

All fourlegged darlings dewormed and vaccinated, today it's raining so everyone inside munching away. So cosy to listen to everyone munching away on their dinner I didn't want to leave this evening. Quinto got a workout in pessoa and in between rainclouds Donoso got a light stretch jog. Start was happy to stay in. I am making plans for my young guys, they have now moved into the stallion stable and paddocks and especially Tico is super content! He is all the time reaching out wanting attention. I have decided that both Tico and Tino are going to start breeding next year and take part our breeding program! They are both so mature in body and mind so I reckon they are ready for that kind of work. Both are asking for action. Exciting with new home-made V-generation!

Artico VIK & Brillantino VIK


Baby Fiero is the most lovable of them all, awsome temperament and sooo beautiful, tall and he just takes my breath away. I have had offers on him thank you so much, but I have decided he will stay with us. And this little gentleman is now registered in PRE studbook;

Fiero the coolest guy.


I want to give some attention to the grown up D-girls and I was very happy to recieve this greeting from Lotta and Parvaneh, thanks alot and good luck on dressage arenas, you both look great!

Doña Parvaneh e. Donoso VII u. Palas.


And this other D-girl just arrived in the loving arms of her new person, we wish Raza and Sara much luck and a alot of exciting new horizons, look forward to follow your journey!

Ok so I promised to do a write-up on my healing process. I will focus on the two main processes.
1. Zen
2. Asea
I am that type of person that when the shit hits the fan I go competitive with my life. Fall down, get up and GO. When something crappy happens I decide to turn this event around and make it something which improves my life by blocking negativity making the space for postivity bigger. I am in charge of my life and I can choose what I want and I make it happen and I let it happen. I have done alot of of serious meditation retreats, yoga, food diets, I hardly ever read novels but my bookshelf is filled with books on self-help and selfawareness and all kinds of philospohy. After my teaching degree in Sweden I studied anthroposophy for 2 years at university in England. I decided I cannot have all this education and not use it for my life because this sucks and is unintelligent!

We all have our own healing capacity and I have always believed we need to use both spiritual and scientific methods to succeed. I studied Anthroposophy to get a balance for my stateschool teaching methods because I wanted to understand WHY we start to teach children at the age of 6-7, I could not accept the answer that's just WHAT we do. The mental abilities are as important as the physical so when I use spritual methods in combination with the scientific approach we get the holistic balance. This is what I know. I am not imposing my ideas I am just talking from my own experiences and maybe my story can give ideas for others. We have to help each other.

The first thing I did was to recover my zen capacity. When my foal Gacela died I was as low in energy as I have ever been in my life. I could not save her but I decided that something constructive had to come from this harsh experience with her. So I basically decided that even if I could not save her I could save myself. So I decided to get well from fibromyalgia. By a coincidence (there are no coincidences) there was a new zen course in Madrid already the following weekend after her passing. I had planned to do the course to be able to use zen on Gacela but even if it was too late for her I was now going to do this for myself. Zen is a healing teqnique you can use on a energetic level. Attending the courses is totally free and anyone can attend and learn the teqnique that was passed down from a government working man in Sri Lanka (my brother is adopted from Sri Lanka). When the men in these countries retire it is customary to go and practise some kind of refinement of your mind and dedicate yourself and what remains of your life to help and improve society. And this guy developed the technique called Zen. Now a irish woman called Suzanne Powell teaches zen on 3 day courses in Madrid and all over the spanish speaking world. She cured herself from cancer using zen. I have already attended her courses but as I did not keep up the daily meditation and I lost the capacity for the practice so I had to reactivate this. 

In a haze of pain and dizzyness because my baby had just died, I have no idea how I got myself out of bed into the car and ended up in the middle of Madrid where I had to be. I had questions but I could not muster the energy to speak in public in front of hundreds of people because I was overwhelmed of my pain. I knew I woud cry and this would have been embarassing because who would understand a broken hearted horse-mum in the middle of starving childen in Africa etc. But my questions got answered through the other participants's questions and basically I understood that when 'Ella' died it was her time to die. I had to take the lesson to accept this fact of life and let go and feel love for myself knowing I had pushed myself over my limits saving her over and over again but that in the end it was never going to be up to me to keep her alive. Accept and let go process started. And my goal was to get well from it.

I want to point out that I am certain the decision to get well was absolutely fundamental. I switched my mind to give importance to being well and not to the fibromyalgia symptoms anymore. So I meditated and I gave myself zen every day.

I have for over a year been taking a product called Asea. Asea works on a cellular level and is basically redox molecules that make our cells work efficiently and that we all have stored naturally in our bodies. These can work more or less efficient and Asea makes them go to work. They have with great scientific skill managed to store these in bottles of basic distilled water and sodium chloride and you take the product orally daily.

Over time diagnosed with fibromyalgia you understand there is no doctor that knows how to fix you. I had a discussion with rheumatology specialist at Puerta de Hierro, Madrid and when I asked him frankly if help for my condition lies outside the contemporary medical system he actually aswered yes. Finally I got an honest answer and it felt correct. So I decided to find my own way with alternatives and Asea seemed to ring a bell for me.

When Gacela happened I had been taking Asea for alittle less than a year but I had not done this with dicipline and I had been taking a too small dosis so I ended up with alot of bottles stored up in my basement. I decided to start to take this daily without failure and increase the dosis 4 times. When I did this something incredible happened. I woke up with a clear head, I had a constant energy and even high energy levels all day long! I was able to go out dancing to 6 am and I had a totally different power during the day for my work, working out my horses and normal stuff. It was an incredible feeling and this good feeling generated more energy and happiness and suddenly I realized I did not have any fibrosymptoms at all. Gone.

I am a very sceptical person so I didn't tell anyone until this condition had been constant for 1 month. I kept taking the 4x dosis and because I was not aware of how many bottles I had I was suddenly totally out of storage. From 4x dosis to nothing became a big chock for my system and I had very strong withdrawal symtoms, sweating and fatigue. This affirmed to me that this product was doing its job and that my system was supported by it. When next Asea delivery arrived I was back on track again. At the moment I am down to 2x dosis and I am now back to feeling like before with good energy and I still have no fibromyalgia symtoms going into my third month.

And that's that's how I changed my story, with the inspiration of this beautiful little horse. Thank you.
