Equestrian archery has been a successful part of
the Dalecarlian Horse Academy since 2012.
Dalecarlia is the Latin word for Dalarna where we live,
but in everyday life, people often say "DHA" when talking about us.
When we started the Horse Academy, we did so-called profile analyzes to see
what our driving forces were. These profile analyzes showed that we are both social entrepreneurs.
But what exactly is social entrepreneurship?
A social entrepreneur has driving forces that differ from the norm in society. The norm where values such as money and power rule. Our values are instead based on doing good for society at large,
creating change and doing something you are proud of.
In our world, it translates to equine education to create a better world
for both horses and humans.
In 2021, we will celebrate 10 years as a company! We will pay attention to this in different ways.
