"When I was 5 years old, all I wanted was a horse. What I got was a tricycle... After I grew up a bit more and I turned 10 I kept bugging my parents "I want a horse! I want a horse!" But instead I got a bicycle..
Then, finally, when I was 12 years old my world turned around. I joined a pentathlon team and I was able to ride on a horse. It didn't go exactly as I imagined it, but I was finally able to ride on horses.
I loved every minute I spent riding, I was able to ride on more different horses and I had great coaches guiding me on the way. I went to the national team in Pentathlon.
But despite my circumstances and my experience I didn't feel as confident in the saddle as I would like. Once my horse just ran away with me when we were hacking out, and I was not able to stop him. He decided to run under a tree branch where he could fit, but I could not.
That ended up in a very cartoonish moment of me being thrown down to the ground. When I was walking back to the stable with a bunch of cracked bones, I decided there can be no more of this.
I wanted my horses to want to listen to me reliably under all circumstances. The journey to that was long, I stopped riding English, I started riding western, trying to improve my relationship with horses.
Later I figured out that its not about which type of a saddle you are using. It is about how you treat your horse. That is how philosophy of Invisible Horse Control started getting born."
