Find Authentic And Fulfilling Relationships with People and Horses

Worskhop of 5 days with Ulrike Dietmann based on Hero's Journey with Horses in Tuscany

Dear Horse Lover, dear Horse Owner,

Authentic relationships and a sense of love are the greatest challenge for us humans and at the same time they are the source of the greatest fulfillment. They are a key to success, partnership, marriage, collaboration, family life, education, teaching and health. And they are key to our relationship with horses. The way we treat horses is similar to the way we treat ourselves and the people in our lives.
In order to be able to experience authentic relationships, I must first perceive my own authentic feelings. To love others, I must first love myself. Horses are great teachers in this art. They do not judge us, they perceive us and love us as we are. For them, it does not matter whether we are educated, handsome or successful. For them only our presence, our authenticity, our awareness of our intentions and feelings count. They do not manipulate us and they do not deceive us. With them, we can be sad or ecstatic, like we are in any given moment. In this presence and connection we find love that is unconditional. Ulrike Dietmann

The Key To Finding Authentic and Fulfilling Relationships in 5 Days.


In the last ten years I have learnt everything about how I can be authentic, how I can discover my beliefs that hold me back from being the person I really am, how I can be a master of my emotions without repressing them or being victimized by them. I have learnt how I can feel and interpret energy and non-verbal communication that is so important in our relationships.

I learnt that in order to find the respect and the trust of a horse, I have to be 100 % authentic and 100 % in the present moment. I learnt that I have to train myself before I train my horse.

It is challenging for a human to look into the mirror and see what has been unconscious and hidden, because it is sometimes pleasant and sometimes not so pleasant. But the horses showed me every time that I was on the right path. They wanted the real me.

Want to know the secret I discovered? Here it is...

Putting all my efforts into looking at what really IS  instead of wanting life or people they way I want them to be. This acceptance of what IS allowed me to connect instantly with any horse I met. Travelling and working with horses of the most different races and backgrounds in different countries on numerous ranches and farms, I could experience the same thing over and over without doubt: the horses connected with me. I did not have to know the horse for months or years to find its trust, I could connect with any horse every single time, just by using my well developed sense of energetic perception and present moment awareness. Even with horses that lived in the wild I could find this connection.

This is what I teach passionately because it improves the lives of horses and humans immediately and on the long term.

And the path of finding this connection is a path of beautiful discoveries. It is no exhausting or repetitive training, it is a path of surprises and miracles. It is a path of getting to know yourself and the horse in ever deeper ways through this connection. It is a path of bliss and joy.


If you’re already feeling that this has been your desire, I can offer you the key through a step by step training: a path of eleven steps, The Hero's Journey Of Transformation With Horses As Teachers. I teach you to open your perception of how the horse teaches you connection and authenticity.



It Is A Journey Of Growing Beyond Yourself And Becoming A True Horse Man, A True Horse Woman. 

The way I teach is a way where each step builds on the one before and where all experiences come together in one big picture, one big transformation that will change your life and your horses life.

This is how change really happens: through transformation. Through activating our unconscious capacity to connect.

My workshops have the set up of a classical Hero's Journey. The difference between a traditional workshop and a Hero's Journey workshop is that in traditional learning you collect information, you make experiences but in a Hero's Journey Workshop you transform, you become a new Self. You meet horses is an whole new way. You understand that transformation happens on a much deeper level. You understand that the horses connect with you on this level. You understand that they take you there.

What you will learn in this workshop:

“You’re About To Discover An 11 Step By Step System For Finding Relationships With Horses And People Where You And The Other Are Seen And Valued For What You Really Are  - And It Is Not Work, It Is Pleasure And Fulfillment”
