Marina Bukanova graduated from Moscow Telecommunications Institute and MBA program of the International Business Academy in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Since 2001, Marina Bukanova is the Managing director and shareholder of a software IT company Asia-Soft.
Being already a business lady and a mother, Marina started horse riding together with her two daughters, Asya and Maya. Soon, they bought their first horse. Beautiful gelding Chamberlain was a showjumping veteran who travelled to 22 countries to compete for Kazakhstan.
In 3 years, Marina has built her own club named after this exceptional horse “Chamberlain”. The Club is the author’s project of a world-famous architect – Yuji Imaio – the last student of the great Kisho Kurokawa. Asya Bukanova was a co-author of the project design. The equestrian club “Chamberlain” logo was designed by famous American artist-aquarellist Misha Lenn.
Marina travelled the world to find and implement the latest know-how in horse management. The horses were also collected from different countries and locally. Natural horsemanship and Paddock paradise are the two cornerstones of Chamberlain. It is not a sports facility, no riding club, but a place of peace and friendship for horses and people.
In 2015, Marina Bukanova became a HorseDream trainer and EAHAE Lifetime member. The first horse-assisted business training in Kazakhstan took place in March 2015 at Chamberlain club.
In 2019 HorseDream Kazakhstan Marina hosted the EAHAE 15th Annual Conference: “Soul Of Success” in Almaty.
