As many of you already know Cathrine is very passionate about animal welfare, and she does everything to make sure that her own horses and the horses she trains are treated well, both in the stables and on the training grounds...
As you might already know, I made a short documentary in collaboration with my amazing sponsor Trolle Company and the one and only film crew Northly Film. Last Monday the film magazine EKKO nominated the film for their shortlist. That alone is super cool!
Having a good trainer is essential if you want to develop. In my “grown up” life I have had two different trainers. The one and only Rune Willum was with me since I was 11 for 15 years, and my current trainers are national coach Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and Kyra Kyrklund.
Some of you might have already bought all the Christmas presents for your friends and family this season, but for those of you who haven’t, we've interviewed Cathrine for her best gift ideas this year.
Psst, some of these gift ideas are from Cathrine's sponsors, and we've have tried to make it super easy for you to find it - as some of you always ask for links :-)
Helgstrand Dressage has managed to set new standards within the dressage world; with the employment of FEI World Ranking no. 5, the very talented dressage rider, Cathrine Dufour. Helgstrand Dressage has now secured another strong profile for the future.
This week we’ve had a chat with Cathrine’s mum Mona Dufour about how she works with Cathrine both during regular days and at competitions. She shares some advice for the mothers of equestrians, and also talks about some of the struggles and rewards of being the parent of an elite athlete.
Most of you have probably seen pictures and videos on Cathrines Instagram from various workouts. Those of you who came to our DufourClub Night in March tried a Cathrine/Katrine workout and also learned more about how these two work together to get better at what they do. This week we’ve talked to Cathrine’s girlfriend Katrine about how she motivates herself and others, what her three best workout tips for riders are and what her and Cathrine do together when they’re not training.
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.
