Training horses is my passion, performing together is my goal!
At a young age I sat in front of my father in the saddle and learnt to ride on Arabs and Trakehners. I learnt how to teach young horses, how to school them dressage-wise and in the years that followed I competed various horses up to Z2-level for other owners. After a championship where I stood in 1st place with one judge but in 13th place with the other judge I decided to swap to show jumping.
I am known at national competitions in the region for bringing on young horses from BB-level to ZZ-level. During the past few years I have put a lot of time and energy into my own development and, thanks to fine owners, have the opportunity to compete at international level. In March 2016 I came 5th in the CSI 1* 1.30m with Bandito, 6th with A-part in the 1.30m and 7th with Chick on a Mission in the 1.20m. In June 2016 I was 1st with A-part in the 1.30m and came 8th with Do Alba R67 in the 1.35m.
There is nothing I love more than training horses and bringing them on. I also find it important to keep developing. I enjoy learning and when training my horses I make use of the expertise of other professionals; because I cannot always solve everything myself.
Something that I also enjoy doing is passing on my knowledge to other riders whether they be riders with their own horse or our riding school riders.
And when I can help someone move forward again, I see that as a challenge.
See you at a competition soon!
