Our philosophy is embedded in our name. Let us see your True Colors -
Every displayed behavior is a symptom, so to speak, to be able to "correct" the unwanted or unsafe behavior - the "cause" or "root" of the problem has to be found. In common horse term "filling the holes" is necessary to educate the equine and build a strong and long lasting foundation. TCEF does not believe in "Quick fixes", harsher bits for example - these are only Band-Aids and make up for a lack in horsemanship, feel and timing.
Working with animals demands a raw intimacy, an open honest heart, a focused mind and a firm but kind hand. Horses are often mirrors of their environment and human handlers. It is necessary to accept the equine for what it is and gather the strength and will to work consistently with detached emotions towards a better relationship with your equine partner.
Is to help owners "see" their horse for who they truly are and then create an individualized approach to help them reach their personal goals.

Anja has worked on projects pertaining to the Sorraia Mustangs, also about the elimination of stereotype behaviors in horses and horse communication. Anja's grandfather was a horse trainer back in Hungary, so the horse virus transferred genetically and in her own family culture.

Clear communication at all times, with fairness and positive rewards as the key.
