Alessa Neuner  Horsetrainer | Blogger | Designer 🌾☀️🐴 My life is dedicated to horses. I love to find inspiration in the beauty of nature and foreign places.

I just can’t get enough of these october m o r n i n g s. Stepping outside in the dark and cold one can already feel winter coming ❄️ but when the first sunbeams made their way through the thick and swirling mist, a u t u m n starts to present nature in the most beautiful colors 🍁🌔
.

Nature and it’s seasons will never loose their magic for me. Day by day I feel such a gratefulness when feeling the sun on my skin, watching the c l o u d s driving by or listening the birds chatting in the green above me 🌿 This world is full of magic and beauty, everywhere around us. You only have to be a w a r e . . . .

Clean your body, clean your mind 💎
.

Yesterday I have had a facial massage for the first time. I would not have imagined it went out I really enjoyed it 🙃 I put away all my jewelry and the lady started washing and massaging my skin with very soft and slow movements. When I later on walked home, I felt so fresh and alive. I don’t wear my jewelry until today and I feel so free and energetic 🌿 Somehow like I now have space for collecting new moments, experiences and maybe jewelry again 🙃
.
Working with horses, I know this influence between body and mind so well. Yesterday I experienced this with my own body as well and decided to spend more awareness with this topic regarding my own body and mind 💛
.

I as well had to think about the healing stones my horses wear from time to time. To get their full impact, you have to clean them with clear water and reload them with the energy of the sun or the moon 🌙 I will try to treat myself like this - cleaning my body and mind to be able to gather all the beauty from this world again ⛰☀️

How proud could I be? 🦋
.
Yesterday I did a trailride with Piccolina, a 4 year old ponygirl I am training and riding since some weeks. Somehow my feeling told me I could take Gana with us, a 3 year old girl who is in my training since quite a time now 💞 Maybe one could call me crazy to go out with 2 horses, both very green and young, both bitless for sure 🤓 But I just knew it would work out. Not only this, I knew it would be great. And wow, how proud these girls made me when we strolled through the woods, enjoying the autumn leaves beneath our feet and the warm sun shining through the forest top 🌿☀️
.
These girls again told be to always build on trust. Trust in my eyes doesn’t mean to walk through the world with blind eyes, believing only in the good. It somehow means to be very honest to each other. So I asked my girls to follow my leads through the forest and they did. Cause they knew I would as well accept if they wouldn’t. And when we came to the point they both felt insecure I did not wait until they asked for it but dismounted and helped them both leading on the ground again.
.

Trusting each other somehow means to accept and to love without conditions. 💛 I would have praised and celebrated my girls doesn’t matter what they would have offered me yesterday. Since I know they try to give their best. I guess they know I always listen to them and their voice counts a lot. The way you treat your horse, your horse is treating you. So trusting in your horse and it’s abilities is the best you can do ✨🦄

What for?
.
I am (working) with horses every day. Every single one of them has their very own problems and projects we are working on. But I have one goal above all: spending a beautiful time with the horse 🌿 Am I allowed to earn money for having a nice time? It took a while to become aware of it, but today I know: I am. It is one of my greatest goals to lead horse and human back to a simple but yet so difficult task: enjoying. ☀️
.
We all are used to be efficient and that time is spend the best when there is some result afterwards. But how much can anything be worth it when the process itself isn’t feeling good at all? I don’t want my students nor my horses to „work“ and sweat and fight when they have lessons.
.
For me, there is only one goal that matters: that horse and human are enjoying each other’s company. It is the biggest gift my horses can make when they greet me by the gate day by day. Seeing them looking forward to our time together is what makes my heart sing 💛 Maybe I am a stupid little girl living in a romantic illusion. But I am a happy little girl - with happy horses by my side 🦄
.
So sometimes I ask my students, what they are making such efforts for? What is the most important part regarding my horse? In the end most of us just wish to have a harmonic relationship, a horse that somehow is looking at us with a loving eye. So yes, this is what my job is about: teaching horse and human to enjoy. To practice happiness, awareness and joy for the moment they are sharing right now, side by side 🦋
.
Thank you @flourishalona for capturing these lovely pics of my traininghorse Feivel and me, enjoying the water and Feivels cutest enthusiasm 🐳😍💦 Oh my, how I love this amazing horse!

Dogs for riders? 🐶🐎
.
Growing up with dogs, I miss it so much to have a four legged companion by my side these days! I spend lots of time with Finley, the dog of my mum 💛 but I feel it’s time to find an own friend accompanying me in my daily life now 😍🤭 I spend many hours with google the past days, to read about different breeds and rescue organizations. Uuuuh, so many information 🤯 .
.

I ended up felling in love with nearly every dog I found - not very helpful 😋 So I decided to ask you today - do you have a dog and could you recommend any breed / organization / breeder?
.

As I am working as a horse trainer, I definitely need a dog that likes to stay outside in hot summer and cold winter. He or she needs to be friendly with other dogs, humans and for sure horses. I definitely try to avoid to get a dog with hunting ambitions (already had a pack of 3 hunters - never again!). I totally fell in love with nordic dogs like huskies or wolfsdogs. But I fear they aren’t very comparable to my business life 🧐 Today I read a lot about the Belgian shepherd and somehow fell in love with this breed... but I am very open to any kind of dogs. So please - let me know what experiences you already made! 👇🏻👇🏻 If you have any dog - horse - accounts that are worth a view feel free to tag them too. Thank you all! 🐶💛🐶

Yesterday I had an intense talk with my brother @wacape and we among other things realized how society is educating us to always be as efficient as possible - during our jobs, our daily routine, simply everywhere. But is it really the best to always go to the limit?
.

Today I spend the whole day with my two- und four legged family. My grand-parents, my aunt, my parents and brother enjoyed laughters, conversations and a beautiful walk through the autumn woods 🍁🌲 No one of us has been efficient in any way (maybe except eating 🤪). And you guess what? I am feeling so deeply grateful and satisfied this evening.
.

When I was strolling through the october forest, Joschi stepping next to me, hearing my mum and my grandmother laughing in front of us, my heart felt so light. This is it. Life. At its fullest. These are the moments that count, that fill my heart with joy and my book of life with colorful new pages 🌼🌿.
.

What is it for you that brings your heart to sing and shine? Forget about society and it’s rules and spent time with things that really count - everything else can wait 😌🦋

Balance is not a permanent condition. It can feel light like a feather. Calm like a silent sea. Full of energy like a wild fire. 🔥 💧 🦅 Balance is something we have to find and define again day by day, movement by movement. When I work with body issues regarding my (training) horses, I try to stay very flexible with my aids. I don’t want me or the horse to build any resistance against each other. So when riding these days I tried to focus on what I can leave out, what aid or pressure in any kind I could let go. It is amazing to feel a horse moving with lightness and joy just because my own body starts to find balance. I am again and again fascinated how sensitive horses do react to our mental and physical aids. 🦋 And somehow during the years, Khayman and I found a balance I am so in love with. Some days are more energetic, some are calmer. Sometimes we focus on collection and fancy movements and the other day we just enjoy moving forward with long steps... there is no „the right way“ of riding. Every one of us has to find its very own balance - and everyone knows what it feels like when we once found it 🌿💛

The more years I spend on this beautiful earth, the more I learn to appreciate a state of h a r m o n y and b a l a n c e. 🌿 When I was younger, I couldn’t handle monotony and needed something adventurous every day. But slowly I started to see the beauty in calmness and the silent comfort of a balanced mind 💎 I am not always seeking for more and more. In contrast I can find more and more satisfaction and fulfillment in the already well known.
.

Maybe the best example is my little horsey herd. How I wished for another member for some years. We tried it out and failed. Still I can imagine to one day welcome another family member. But for now, I am so happy with the three of my boys and their very harmonic way of living together 🦋 sometimes we are training the same things and nothing is changing at all - except my feeling of being proud and happy about what we can share together. This f e e l i n g and love for everyone around me is growing very constantly 💛

Is there anything better than a soft small horsey nose? 💙 or: Joschi trying to be not too annoyed by my kisses 😅🤓 #ponyboy #heimatliebe #shetlandstallion

Maybe I am not that typical bavarian girl, but born and raised in Munich somehow I have been grown up with all these crazy traditions around Oktoberfest or Wiesn how we call it 🤓🍻💙 So I spend some really good hours with my friend @prinzessinsamirah | @mimishomestory the last days and for sure we had to take some pics with the horses, wearing our #dirndl 💃 I reaaaally love the results of this spontaneous shooting. It’s just been two days of laughters, blue sky and a hot autumn sun, some beer 🤭, wild rides with the horses and careless hours between beloved people. That is what a happy soul just needs from time to time 🌿☺️ Thank you Melanie for this beautiful time and our friendship! #girlstime #wiesn #münchnermadl #münchnerkindl

The safety of daily routine vs experiencing adventures 🌿
.
My horses do live in their herd on this land since many years. I know they feel very safe and comfortable with their daily life. They know the times we are with them, bringing new water and food (which is never empty for sure) and the times we work with them. They are enjoying the safety of their daily routine as a very stable herd of horses.
.
I know this routine helps them a lot to feel relaxed and calm and this is why they can do a lot of things I ask them for which aren’t natural for them - for example going for a trail ride without the herd or even being ridden at all! .
But besides this daily routine, I try to stimulate their bodies and souls with small adventures. It doesn’t need a lot, but in my eyes these little happenings are as important as their daily routine. So what am I doing to enrich their days? Today you can see some short clips where my horses are bursting with joy and having so much fun because they have seen me walking up the hill towards a part of the paddock that hasent been open for a while. I am sure they are really happy exploring this part today 🌿☀️
.
Sometimes I as well bring them food that isn’t ordinary, like branches, nuts or other stuff that I can spread in their paddock. I as well often leave objects in their paddock which at first might frighten them - but later on they have so much fun exploring it and just learning new things on this beautiful, wide world 🌎 .
It’s like with all in life: finding a good balance. I love to be creative with showing the world to my horses 🦋 so maybe you as well have some good ideas? Would love to read about it! .

Silverboy 🦋
.
Today my brother @wacape and I filmed some clips for a project with @pferdefluesterei and this boy was so amazing! These days he has a lot of power and energy 🔥 maybe he is already feeling these colder winter days he is enjoying so much. Born in february in Poland he is used to cold from his very first day on and he simply loves it! ❄️ It is so fascinating how different Khayman and Jimmy can be, even though they have a lot in common as both being arabian thoroughbreds. But like their coat color, they can be like Jin and Yang. And I so much love this contrast 🌗.
.
Does your horse prefer cold winter days or the heat of summer?
