Satakunta University of Applied Sciences – Finland
I feel so privileged being able to share the knowledge of my study, meet people and travel. Last weekend was no exception to that, when I was invited to lecture at Pori Finland. Initiator was Susanna Hämäläinen, organiser was Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK University) by Hanna Tuominen. The audience consisted of a large group of veterinarian physiotherapists from SAMK University, a group of people who were very familiar with the calming signals of horses, having been taught them by Susanna Hämäläinen. There were teachers (also from institutes), behaviour consultants, horse owners. But above all, there were all horse lovers who are actively involved in finding new ways to improve their relationship, socialisation, communication and training of horses. There were a lot of indebt questions and great observations. And above all a great vibe. A very nice other personal touch for me was meeting Susanna Hämäläinen, Nina Mäki-Kihnia and Hanna Tuominen, persons I have been mailing with and working with for months and who I got to meet real life for the first time. What a joy. Thank you so much Hanna Tuominen from Satakunta University of Applied Sciences for the perfect organisation. Thank you Rita Peltola and Virpi Tunninen for taking pictures.
