The natural laws of language - how we can understand animals better and thus train them more sustainably and gently


Her visit to the CHIO Aachen CAMPUS in November is not her first at the famous showgrounds an the Soers. However, it is the first time that Anne Krüger-Degener will be giving exclusive insights into her work with the animals during a live training session there. She will be bringing horses, dogs and other animal companions with her, so that horse fans and animal lovers alike will get their money's worth and learn a lot.

Among other things, the 56-year-old shows how to create a successful partnership between humans and animals based on trust, politeness, resilience and solidarity. The correct interpretation of body language signals from horses is just as important as the proper use of your own body language to avoid misunderstandings.

Anne Krüger-Degener has already presented the results of this bonding work several times in the past at “Horse & Symphony” as part of the CHIO Aachen. For her highly acclaimed performances, she brought ducks and goats or dogs and a whole herd of sheep to the Aachen Soers and enchanted the audience with her unique program.

The 56-year-old has been doing this work since 1987. “In my life I rely on working with my animals on a daily basis. As a result, I have developed a loving and fair approach to animals based on communicative principles, conceptual training and a systematic approach, following the learning patterns of nature,” says Krüger-Degener, explaining her philosophy.

She has been running the animal school and sheep farm at the Degenerhof in Melle near Osnabrück since 1999. There, she follows her principle of “communicating instead of conditioning” by seeking a direct conversation with the animal - without the use of treats and toys.

At the master class on November 23 in the festively decorated Albert-Vahle-Arena, the audience will be able to experience this special training method up close.
