Den Hele Ekvipage wants to influence change in the horse industry by leading by example.
We are creating:
- A leading horse facility centered around welfare.
- A worldclass mountain trail course.
- An education center and video library
- A weekly Podcast

What is Den Hele Ekvipage?

Den Hele Ekvipage is owned by myself, Helle Knudsen, and is located in the small town of Nørager in Denmark. Currently the facility houses a riding school which follows the Horse In Harmony training principles by Ute Lehmann. It is also used for horse boarding and training and is currently home to approximately 24 horses of all shapes and sizes.

Good horsemanship skills, training and welfare are key elements to everyday life at Den Hele Ekvipage, so naturally myself and other qualified trainers at the stable also offer services in those principles.

Who is Helle Knudsen?

Horse trainer, farmer, and animal enthusiast….Excited, straightforward and easy going…. That’s some of the words I am proud to call myself.

A heart deeply set out in the animal-world and with a drive “to do better and not settle for poor excuses” has taken me through a 4-year degree in farm management with Dairy cows, about 15 years working in the farming industry with pigs and dairy cows, and an ongoing education with horses. Teaching and helping people and horses have been a part of it since 2002.

Throughout my life I think I have subconsciously always been looking at things from at least 2 sides of the table …. You could argue that being the animal- enthusiast and with everything I say about good horsemanship and great horse husbandry, it is a double standard to also work in the farm industry…. But I use that tremendously in my everyday work, thoughts, ideas etc. To me, that’s the business side of it that is a very worthy opponent to the horse world.

I strongly believe in “doing my best”, that “Happiness is a choice”, and that horses deserve better!

My favourite quote at the moment:
Make no little plans –they have no magic to stir men's blood…. Aim high in hope and work! ( Daniel Burnham)

Why Does Den Hele Ekvipage Need Your Help?

We firmly believe that better welfare for horses is needed. This starts at the core of having better facilities and environments for horses to live in. While we are well on our way with creating this through the Paddock Paradise™ project, we want to lead by example. To do that we want to expand by making improvements to the existing facilities and expand the agility course so that we can show the practical aspects of natural horse care and welfare. We want to show that you can still operate successful riding schools, and boarding/training facilities without causing excessive stress on horses.

But it is more than that…

Influencing change starts with education. Therefore we want to set a large focus on creating an educational resource, starting with a video library that can be used by anyone. These videos will be centered around welfare topics, basic training and horsemanship as well as learning to have fun with your horse through agility training. There will also be more focused topics that will be targeted at riding schools and boarding facilities, however the principles are always the same, and can be applied to most situations, whether you have 1 horse or many.

By becoming a Patron, your money will be put towards creating more videos as well as going into the project as a whole. You get to be a part of the community and contribute to change in the industry, and for that , we can not thank you enough!
