  1. Dear Learning Horses.

    I would really like to know about the upcoming activities.

    I’m a 25 years old Argentinian-Portuguese girl, living and working in Germany. I’m an animal lover and have studied Dog Training at the University of Buenos Aires, and have done many courses regarding horses ethology. Yet, like many others, I feel something is not right… The cognitive-emotional philosophy seems to be what I’ve been looking for and I would very much like to participate in one of your seminars.

    I’ll be looking forward hearing from you.
    Thanks in advance.
    Kind regards,


    • Hi Sofia,
      thank you so much for your interest! You are more than welcome! We know what you feel, as many others feel.
      If you write at, we could give you other information about zooanthropology.
      We are experiencing a time of great cultural ferments regarding our coexistence with other animals and not only.
      It’s time to change and you are welcome!

      Un grande abbraccio!
      Francesco and Jose

    Dear learning horses,

    I feel people train horses because they need control.
    Control over there own fear!
    Fear to be vounerable…
    There fear to open op themselves…
    Fear to be equaal….
    but this, being equaal, opening yourself ,and inviting the horse in for friendship and the fun ,
    learning together, is to me, so i have experienst, the only way to oneness!!!
    And in this oneness all is posible…..and all are happy….

    best regards Irene
