For a horse to give us the best, he needs to be in balance mentally, emotionally and physically. The same goes for the rider. And in order to be able to function as a healthy team the longest possible, we must listen ourselves and our horse. Because the horse is the "microcosm", the mirror of the rider's life in general.
I have had problems in the past with maneges and with the people that used to give me lessons. I was afraid to do anything except for walking and trot. Alev has not only showed me how to ride a horse but how to be one with it, learn tactics to control it and how to listen to it. Alev makes the lessons fun and interesting. She taught me how to push a horse away from me when I am stuck between a wall and the horse, she taught me how to saddle a horse and I overcame my fear with canter. Shah is a perfect horse for me as she will not take off when a car passes or if there is a strange sound. I am definitely going to have a horse in the future and when I do I will use the tactics that Alev taught me. I am so happy that I would never want to learn differently. Thank you Alev :)
Alev has shown me in a relaxed and very positive way how to establish a sane and trustful relationship with our dominant mare. She taugth me to better understand the needs of our mare and the reasons for her behaviour in certain situations. By doing a lot of ground work, I learned a great deal about my own attitude and inner energy, and how to direct the mare with calm movements and as little energy possible. Alev is a wonderful teacher with great intuition, patience and a sharp eye. What I find especially touching is her smile and calmness in those situations when our mare overreacted and bucked. Thanks, Alev!"
"For years as a horseman I follow the evolution of Natural horsemanship. I was very interested two years ago when Ms. Alev Sarc - one of ours – came back to Turkey being specialized in this field. After I watched her work with a lady and her horse in my farm the evolution I saw in this lady and her horse was very satisfactory. Later I learned that she had also worked with another owner who had fears and was very uncomfortable in the presence of her two horses. When I saw later this same owner I found that she had no more fears anymore and moreover she had succeeded to establish an incredible bond with her horses.Of course, we cannot consider this method as miraculous, but if you work with competent people like Ms. Alev Sarc, it is clear that it greatly improves the quality of life of horses and riders, and helps them overcome their fears. It is a method that helps mutual understanding, and that makes us feel good as much as the horse. Our daily interactions with our horses become more secure, confident, and therefore it is reflected in the sport. I thank Mrs Sarc to have come and introduced us this way of working with horses."

When I think of what Alev taught me, it is primarily the ability to manage my energy, especially in difficult situations. Remain calm and positive above all! This amazingly improved my communication with my horse, and allowed us to regain confidence in one another. This is only a glimpse of what she transmits, in addition to her equestrian experience. I have only one word for her: Thanks! "
