Anne Krüger-Degener gives live training sessions with horses, dogs and other animal companions

A successful partnership between humans and animals based on trust, politeness and solidarity – this is what Anne Krüger-Degener stands for. On November 23, the animal trainer and shepherdess will provide insights into her training methods.

When she appeared at “Horse & Symphony” in the past, Anne Krüger-Degener didn't just bring horses with her. The shepherdess and animal trainer brought ducks and goats or dogs and a whole herd of sheep with her to the Aachen Soers and enchanted the audience with her unique program. In November, her path will once again take her to the famous CHIO Aachen showgrounds. This time, Anne Krüger-Degener will be giving exclusive insights into her work with the animals during a live training session for the CHIO Aachen CAMPUS.

Under the title “The natural laws of language – how we understand the animals better and thus train them more sustainably and gently”, she will present the special connection between humans and animals and follow her principle of “communicating instead of conditioning” – direct communication without interpreters such as treats or toys. The 56-year-old 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, Krüger-Degener will show 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 correct use of your own body language to avoid misunderstandings.

Krüger-Degener has been doing this special work since 1987 and has been running the animal school and sheep farm at the Degenerhof in Melle near Osnabrück in Lower Saxony since 1999. “In my life as an animal trainer and farmer, 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 the 56-year-old, explaining her philosophy.

At the master class on November 23, 2024 in the festively decorated Albert-Vahle-Arena, the audience will be able to experience her unique methods at first hand.
