Anneli Westlund was born in 1974 and grew up in the south of Sweden, on her parents ' farm with breeding on a small scale, with about 17 horses, of which two stallions. She had a special relationship with horses since she and her sisters would look after and handle them even as small children, and it formed a deep bond, and full trust.
At the beginning of her twenties she bought a horse as an adult, a young trotter, which she retrained for jumping and competed successfully with no noseband, martingale, whip or spurs. She also tried western riding like trail, horsemanship, cutting, and roping.
Anneli was educated as a Natural Horsemanship instructor for Jahna Hukha Heinola in 2001. Was Parelli certified at Level 3 a few years later, but was looking for a deeper, freer way to communicate with horses.
In 2012, she started her training in classical dressage for masters and found the lightness. Among other things, two years iin schooling of dressage master Phillipe Karls "The School of Lightness” for his wife Bea Borelle, classical education in Portugal on lusitano stallions and clinics, workshops for Manolo Mendez, and Anja Beran.
Anneli developed The Art of Lightness™- feeling of touch - to communicate with the horses, without traditional pressure/release methods and negative reinforcement - on the contrary to the traditional Natural Horsemanship world. This was a new and non-existing way at the modern equestrian world. However, this concept has in recent years been taken by other trainers all over the world, all claiming it is their idea.
