Horses of Taiga’s team has a constant: me, Floriane. You can call me Flo!

Every season I get help from one or two persons that feel like sharing the adventure for a few months.


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. A wonderful adventure that will lead to another: Sweden and Horses of Taiga!


In her home country, The Netherlands, horses have always been Rianne’s passion. That combined with her love for nature and the outdoors made trailrides the perfect holiday for her. After a holiday with Horses of Taiga, Rianne decided to come help me for a month, in August. She thought it was really not enough for her, so I will be very happy to have her at my side again for the whole winter season 2019-2020.

Cooking, driving, triming hooves, training horses… she can do everything! And as a professional physiotherapist, she can also take care of your little muscle pains after a long day ride if you wish.
