Being a True Lead means that you have found the power in yourself, that you have the courage to stand by yourself and that you are capable of mastering your own life, your emotions and your potentials. With this power you will be able to show the way for others – with the horse as an equal partner!

The education is for you having a passion for developing relationships between horses and people. You may already work with people as a psychologist, psychotherapist, teacher, riding physiotherapist, educator, handicap-riding instructor, coach or other professions, and now you want to know a lot more about how to integrate the horses into your work. You already know and are used to being around horses.

There is not only one way. There are many ways to establish relationships between horses and people, and the purpose of this training is to find your way. Below you can hear what True Lead students said after the training (in danish).

Many options

The days are intense, full of insights from the horses and nature. You will develop in many different areas of life.

As a teacher and supervisor, it is important to be able to see, sense, feel and hear what your students or clients need. This applies regardless of whether it is relationship work, disability instruction, ride physiotherapy or therapy, or just horses and people who need to find each other.

When you guide other people and horses and you want to help them find each other, you must be able to be neutral, see clearly and not be affected by your own projections. The way to the hearts of the horse and your fellow men goes through your own heart. Therefore, you have to go for the first time.

The horse is our mirror and it tells us what we need to know. It requires us to meet without plans, projects or ambitions and without knowing where it ends. Only there we want to see the road. You must therefore develop your intuition and learn to trust it. You must learn to be confident in the open!

You can apply for admission to the program when:
You want to develop your skills to understand and communicate with horses and people
You want to learn to be loving and powerful at the same time
You want to make an effort to find your own inner True Lead – the one that shows the way!
You want to integrate the horses into work with other people and / or yourself.

Here you can see what the students from the 2016 team said then finished the program.

teaching Team

Marianne Florman
I am the founder of True Lead Academy and have developed “The Road to the Heart’s Heart and Your Own!”. I have a Bachelor of Education from RU 1995 and have studied Educational Sociology at DPU in 2002. At the same time, I have had my own company for more than 20 years with lectures and coaching specializing in performance anxiety, motivation, cooperation and individual-oriented development in groups and personally.

I am in training as Traumeter Therapist (Somatic Experiencing) and finish my education in October 2017. I am a member of the Riding Therapist Association.

It is me who acts as an education manager and accounts for most of the teaching, as well as guest teachers for selected parts of the classroom.
On parts of the program you will also meet my assistants who will guide you along the way.

Dorte Christiansen
For several years I have had the pleasure of being on the road to the horse’s heart and my own along with Marianne, and I have received individual instruction and supervision in horse assisted therapy at Ellevegården. I have been educated body psychotherapist (MPF) at the Institute for Life Energy and Zone Therapist (RAB) with own practice since 1988. Since 2013 I have assisted in riding physiotherapy, where I primarily work therapeutically with the contact between horse and human.

Mathilde Nørgaard Denning

It is a pleasure to be an assistant to the True Lead Academy education. I have had the honor of being a student at Marianne Florman for 5 months, is subsequently a trained coach of Mindjuice and is currently studying for a holistic animal welfare specialist. I am also trained in both healing and telepathy.

Teaching will be held at Møn with me at Ellevegården at Rytsebækvej 11, Hjelm, 4780 Stege.

The teaching will take place at Ellevegården, and on several consecutive days you will stay in a separate house with toilet, bath and kitchen, and in nearby B & B.
When you are more students at the same time, you will sleep in rooms together or you can sleep in your own tent or caravan. You will also have the opportunity to stay in my tipi. You have to take care of your own shopping and cooking. There will be the basic cookware available (oil, spices etc.)
