My Heart Centers – Ibiza & Portugal
Alegria – natural horse & life academy for young people | IBIZA
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The Alegria project was born in the summer of 2009 out of necessity. I had already been actively involved with horse protection for a few years and was tired of the stables always filling up with new misery despite rescuing many malnourished and abused horses. How on earth, we asked ourselves, can we really change people's consciousness?
How on earth, we asked ourselves, can we really change people´s consciousness?
We also asked our kids and got an answer: Start with us. Tell us what you know and show us how to do it better.
That is how in 2015 my school Alegria was founded in Ibiza. Children and teenagers not only learn how to ride but learn about everything that the company of horses brings with it. The nature of horses, communication with animals and humans, herbal medicine, shoeing, saddling, teamwork, creativity, meditation, energy work and the art of sharing your own knowledge with others.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
In 2016, when I contacted Danish Nadja Bieler in Portugal to help me find my Lusitano, I did not even dream that we would found a riding center together only a year later. Nadja found Habanero for me and that began a story that changed both our lives.
In Portugal the project gives you the opportunity to be part of the daily life at a professional Equestrian Center with High Level Lusitano competition horses and Schoolmasters and visit some of the Equestrian specialties Portugal has to offer.
You can discover the many aspects of improving your skills of communicating with horses in and out of the saddle, and with the specialized seat training lessons improve your balance as a rider. The goal at OWEC is teaching you how riding can become as light and easy as you always wanted, in respectful harmony with the horse – at any level.
Our riding holidays are about learning new techniques, understanding the reasons why, and improving your skills to continue growing as a rider – also when you return home.
FIND YOUR SOUL HORSE
What Nadja did for me, she can do for you as well. She found my soul horse for me. This requires above all empathy and profound knowledge of horses and people. Nadja senses the “Perfect Match” and brings you to your soul horse. She has a great contact with breeders and horse owners in Portugal and accompanies your journey with empathy and expert knowledge, during training in OWEC or at your home, where ever it may be.
