I have always been fond of horses. I started riding in my home country, France, when I was 6 years old, and haven’t stopped ever since! My first job, when I was 16, was already with horses. I spent my summer holidays riding and taking care of the horses for a famous leisure park. For 5 years, I was also a volunteer rider for the night show there. After my studies I flew to Finland, where I found my calling in life: guiding. Indeed after accompanying a few groups for a hike or to observe bears in the wilderness, I came to like entertaining and making people discover the beauty of nature a lot. So it was time I realized one of my childhood dreams: working with sled dogs in Finnish Lapland. After a long winter season, it was time to realize another dream. Still guiding – this is definitely what I wanted to do – but this time in Iceland, with horses. In the South of the country, I discovered the Icelandic horse and all its characteristics. Then came North Iceland, where I was responsible for another horse riding tour stables.
