I’ve been a horse trainer for over 20 years and my students come from all disciplines. I’ve always cross-trained my horses in different western disciplines, dressage, jumping, pole work, liberty and trick training. And, of course, a lot of hacking out.


I love to communicate with horses the full way; body, mind and soul. Tapping into horse’s genuine point of view, they show us how to unfold and rediscover our true authenticity.


I’m also the author of 10 horse training books, with a total of 938 pole work exercises.

Born in 1983, raised on a horse farm outside Flen, Sweden.
In my teens, I started with liberty dressage and trick training. Not long after, I competed at an elite level in various western disciplines. My best discipline was Trail, where you ride a pattern with many poles in different technical obstacles and pole series. Through this, my interest in creative and developing pole exercises was born!



At the same time as I competed in western classes, I also trained the horses in dressage, showjumping, and trick training. I started working as a trainer, and my students came from all disciplines.
Training only one single discipline has never suited me. Instead, different horses showed me, bit by bit, how I could build up a complete signal system, which was based on both intuition and technique.
Thus began my journey in what I named Authentic Horse Communication. A holistic signaling system I learned from the horses, and I am still being taught today by them.



For me, each horse is a new source of inspiration,  techniques and spiritual knowledge. Being around horses helps me to align with the magical side of life.
I have no interest in obedience and hierarchies.
The energy communication with the horse, being in tune with the horse and thereby finding the perfect way of connecting, has always been my guiding star.
From there, the horse and I can, together, create all imaginable movements, exercises, and achievements, from animated play to honing their buoyancy in piaffe, passage, and pirouettes.

Creativity is a natural part of me and something I happily share with everyone who wants more variety and inspiration.


I competed at an elite level in the early 2000s, mainly in Performance disciplines such as Trail, Western Horsemanship, Reining, Western Riding, Versatile Horse and Pleasure.

I placed top 3 in 70% of my rides. Top 5 in 89%.

Silver, Swedish Championships, in Versatile Horse

Bronze, Swedish Championships, in Reining

I’m surrounded by great people and horses who all contribute to the business and world of Horses of Zachanox.
In the support, you’ll meet my heroes, Stephanie Stjärnlöv and Sarah Karlsson. They are doing a fantastic job of assisting you if you need any help with your order or if you have other questions.
Here’s a lovely photo of Stephanie and Tiger.
My horses Tiger and Jeni help me to create new exercises or topics. They are both Quarter horses and have lived with me since they were yearlings. This year (2023), they turn 23 and 17 years old.
And finally, we have Aiki, a Chinese Crested Powder Puff Dog, or, as we see it; a Lucky dragon. He will always guide me home.
