Talking With Horses
Mission & Vision
Communication is more than just talking. Communication consists of body language, energy, vision, and emotions. Communication is done with the body and mind and not just the brain. Giving the horse a way to communicate creates mutual understanding. Communication at this level offers the opportunity to get to the origin of problems and heal trauma. The steps needed for improvement are clarified this way. The bond between horse and human is improved by creating mutual understanding, allowing both to grow on a personal and intellectual level.
Horses are like angels, put on this earth to impart humans with self-awareness and to give insight into life. Over 15 years ago I wrote this text believing it to be true. Although I still believe there is some truth to it, I also believe this no longer covers everything. To this day however, I haven’t yet found a better way to summarize my vision.

What do I need?
A picture on which the animal clearly looks into the camera and also one taken from the side with the whole body on it. Important about those photos is that your animal is the only one on them (so pay attention to your background!) and that they are unedited (so no photo shoot photos). In addition, I would like to receive the questions that you would like to ask the animal. Those questions ensure that it really becomes a conversation and also assures that you will get an answer to what concerns you as an owner. If you request a consultation through the site, you will be able to fill in this information in the intake form.
How do I request a consultation?
The price of consultation includes advice from my side. If necessary, the consultation will also be translated by a native speaker. (not included in price).
Standard consultation by mail, including 5 questions 60 euro
Emergency consultation by mail, including 5 questions 90 euro (an emergency consultation will take place within 24 hours)
Live consultation by Whatssapp or Messenger 90 euro (appointment only)
You can request this by filling in the form on the website and attaching the photos of the horse. If this does not work, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as the application and payment has been received, it will be placed on the waiting list. Sometimes it is a bit longer than other times, but the aim is always to do the consultation within 2 weeks.
Payment in advance
When registering a consultation, you can pay online. Do you want an invoice for your accounting? That’s not a problem. Put the correct billing address in ‘comments’. Because Talking with Horses falls under the Dutch small business regulations, we do not charge VAT, but an invoice is not a problem. Are you really not satisfied afterward? Feel free to contact us.
My specialty is communicating with horses. Although I have been working in this field for many years I am still amazed by what we can learn from horses. If we just have to be willing to let go of our egos, to listen, observe, and receive.
Specialization requires passion, dedication, and knowledge. If I don’t have a broad frame of reference I won’t be able to effectively communicate with the horse. Broad knowledge and a deep understanding create a large frame of reference. This is the main reason for me to increase and improve my knowledge. I often work together with vets, osteopaths, physical therapists, veterinary naturopaths, and other professionals.
Not only instructive but also practical. That way you can search and get started in a multidisciplinary way.

I ended up at Annika / talking with horses to a referral from a holistic vet. How special that she can be a voice, allowing animals to indicate to themselves what is going on in their lives. My experience is that Annika passes on very purely. The message of an animal can bring all kinds of emotions and sometimes even confrontational. I think it’s very clever how she chooses to stay true to what is. That doesn’t seem easy to me, but she can do it. All information has always proved very valuable to me, although sometimes I could not place it directly. I have reread sessions that I could fully interpret retroactively. My connection with horses runs deep. Not everyone can join in, but Annika has that gift. You and your horse are in good hands with her.
Receiving what a horse or animal has to say is something that many can do. But interpreting that message in the right way requires knowledge, common sense, and that little bit extra that Annika has in her. It’s what makes her special. She can give good advice but is also willing to take a step back if necessary. She is open and honest in her findings.
I had been struggling with my horse Celva for over 6 years. Already undergone various clinics and therapies. Meso, injections in various places, and a different way of driving. It went a little better. But it never worked out. Until a friend of mine told me about Annika during a beach ride. Annika talks to your horse through a photo. Gosh, I was still thinking. But for that money, I’ll give it a try. After I had simply made an appointment by mail in April and emailed the photo, I received a response. And the conversation was not pleasant. Celva appeared to suffer from geopathic radiation. As a result, she could not rest and suffer from all those ailments. When I moved her to another box, she noticeably improved. Here she could relax. Celva’s ‘problem’ resolved itself after the summer. Moral of this story.
All vets and therapists can do a lot. But the ‘conversation’ with my horse got us back on track. Anika. Thank you on behalf of Celva, Jura ️ and Margriet
