HorseDream Logo HorseDream provides this platform for pushing forward the vision, to establish and develop Horse Assisted Education as a general form of personal and professional development in (not only European) enterprises, organisations, institutions, societies and for personal purposes.

Membership of the platform is at the discretion of the EAHAE board. Any member acting in a manner, considered by the EAHAE board, to be detrimental to the organisation or to the general domain of horse assisted education will result in instant expulsion from the association.

EAHAE was founded by Gerhard Krebs (HorseDream) in August 2004.

Since then HorseDream leads EAHAE as a part of its business. Membership fees and payments for special services go directly into the support of the community, namely administration of all EAHAE activity (website, social media) promoting EAHAE, sponsoring the conference and coaching and supporting the members.

EAHAE is a support platform, on which every member can develop her/his own horse assisted education business.

For EAHAE community it is essential we hold and adhere to certain values.

Above all is trust.
Further we encourage caring, collaborative business and not competitive business.
It is core of the EAHAE values that we collaborate on an equal level.

Regarding our horses, we consider them as trainers not as tools.

These core values are a substantial and essential facet of the HorseDream Train the Trainer Seminar, which qualifies for EAHAE membership. If it is felt by the board that these values are being compromised then membership can be revoked.

EAHAE does not allow members to be connected with or use techniques connected with Scientology (L. Ron Hubbard) or any sect. Any member found to be in violation of this rule will immediately be expelled from the association.
