5 Questions for Cathrine's Sponsor Ulrich

We've finally gotten to the next five questions for one of the amazing people in Cathrine's team! This time we've spoken to Ulrich Trolle who in 2006 started Trolle Company A/S. Ulrich and Cathrine have known each other for many years, and Trolle Company has, as one of Cathrine's main sponsors, been a part of the team that's supported her on her long journey.

1) How did you get into equestrian sports?

I was born and grew up on Trolles Ridingcenter in Brande, which was both stud farm and riding club, so it was natural for me to stay within the equestrian sports world.

2) What does it take to become a Trolle rider?

At Trolle Company we have something called Trolle Manship, which means that you're a loyal employee or rider, you have the right attitude to your colleagues and competitors and that you show trust and respect to the people around you.

We look for profiles that we feel have Trolle Manship, potential to be at the top in equestrian sports, or people who are already there. There are a lot of criterias when we expand our team. And when we have our eye on a rider, we follow this person over a longer period of time and have a long selection process.

3) What's the best thing someone said to you this week?

I just found out that Samshield's big news which we've been waiting for is going to be delivered within the next 14 days!

4) What's the biggest fashion trend within equestrian sports right now?

Our main brand Cavalleria Toscana will in the coming winter collection present colours such as Plum and Cognac, which I think gives a good indication of which colours we should be looking out for this season. We're also seeing more and more that horse and rider is matching, so we're working hard to make everything work together and getting it to look elegant and stylish at the same time.

5) Do you have a secret that you want to share with us?

Since March we've been working on a documentary called "The Story" about Cathrine, which we're going to be launching soon! If you follow us on Instagram @trolle_company  we'll be sharing updates and teasers for the film and its launch.

Så er vi kommet til de næste fem spørgsmål til et af de fantastiske mennesker, der er med i Cathrines team! Den her gang har vi snakket med Ulrich Trolle som i 2006 startede Trolle Company A/S. Ulrich og Cathrine har kendt hinanden i flere år, og Trolle Company har som en af Cathrines hovedsponsorer været en del af det team, der har støttet op om hendes lange rejse.

1) Hvordan kom du ind i ridesporten?
Jeg er født og opvokset på Trolles Ridecenter i Brande, som både var stutteri og rideklub, så det var en naturligt for mig at blive i denne verden.

2) Hvad skal der til for at blive en Trolle rider?

I Trolle Company har vi noget det hedder Trolle Manship, hvilket går ud på at man er en loyal medarbejder eller rytter, man har den rigtig attitude overfor sine kollegaer og konkurrenter samt en gensidig tillid og respekt overfor hinanden.

Vi ser efter profiler som vi syntes til dels har Trolle Manship, potentiale eller er i toppen af ridesporten. Der er mange kriterer vi ser efter når vi øger teamet. Og når vi har en rytter i søgelyset er det en vi følger over en længere periode, samt en længere udvægelsesproces.

3) Hvad er det bedste nogen har sagt til dig i denne uge?

Det er at jeg netop har fået at vide at Samshields helt store nyhed vi går og venter på bliver leveret inden for de næste 14 dage!

4) Hvad er den største modetendens i ridesporten lige nu?

Vores hovedbrand Cavalleria Toscana præsenterer i den kommende vinterkollektion farver som blandt andet Plum og Cognac, som jeg syntes giver et meget godt billede af hvilke farver vi skal kigge efter denne sæson. Jeg oplever stadig at både hest og rytter skal matche, så vi bestræber os meget på at få det hele til at gå op i en højere enhed og få det hele til at se elegant og stilet ud.
