THE TEAM

Horse lovers, nature addicts, obsessed Earth friends.

Here is a little more about us.

Floriane

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 my home country, The Netherlands, horses have always been my passion. That combined with my love for nature and the outdoors made trailrides the perfect holiday for me. After a holiday with Horses of Taiga, I decided to come help me for a month, in August 2019. It was really not enough for me, so I just decided to stay!

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