The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 36 | Katarina Lundgren of MiMer Centre

What a pleasure to have a conversation with Katarina Lundgren, founder of the MiMer Centre in Sweden! Katarina is currently writing her masters thesis, studying the relationship between horses and humans, as found in Equine Facilitated Learning and Psychotherapy environments, and travels worldwide to co-teach with previous podcast guest Emily Keison. In this episode we covered a lot of ground, discussing creating more optimal horse environments, what needs often gets missed in Equine therapy settings, how we can own and work with our fear and develop more awareness, and her perspective on the best next steps for the horse industry as a whole.

Katarina’s passions are understanding and working with equines and humans in therapy, so it can benefit both clients and horses.

She is involved in research and educational projects to spread knowledge, awareness of ethics, welfare and best practices when we work with Equines in Therapy. The research she is involved in focuses on equine-equine and equine-human interaction. She is currently writing her master’s thesis on equine-human interaction in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.

She is an Equine Professional who works in teams and offers experiential learning and therapy with horses. She travels the world to educate about the teamwork, the equine’s role and welfare needs and the Equine Professional’s role, need of knowledge, awareness and responsibility in Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies.

She is a co-founder and chair of the board in MiMer, a small independent education, research and treatment center. MiMer is a co-organizer of the Minds-n-Motion “A Horse is a Horse, of Course?!” International Symposiums on Equine Welfare and Wellness and the publisher of the following compendiums with the same name.
