In terms of having a good rider’s position, the alignment between shoulder, heel and butt should be so that you can hold up a stick and see that they’re all in line. To be able to do this it’s really all about repetition and making sure that you’re strong enough to...
In my last blog post I talked about 5 things I think are essential for becoming a good rider. But there’s also another thing that’s super important for when preparing for competitions, and that’s to make sure that my wonderful horses feel ready and confident when they enter the arena...
It’s extremely important to stay focused all the time during a training session. No phones, no text messages or other disturbing things when riding, because it really distracts your focus when you think of something else than the horse you are sat on.
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!
There are a million things that makes a good rider, but here are 5 things that I think you definitely don't want to miss! The first thing that pops to my mind is, that a rider needs to have a general good physical condition...
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.
Igen i år var jeg så heldig at blive inviteres til årets sportsgalla i Boxen i Herning. Det er altid en virkelig sjov og flot begivenhed, og jeg er utrolig glad for at blive inviteret til en aften i sportens navn.
I år fik jeg lov til at overrække en af årets priser, samt præsentere Pernille Harder til årets sportsnavn. Så jeg fik altså lov til at træde på scenen hele to gange.
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 :-)
The idea for DufourFashion came along with the club. One of my friends has worked in the music industry. A lot of fans and music lovers often wear the band t-shirt of their favorite group. That is sort of a thing that tie people even more closely together. That idea was too good to let go and we decided to try and introduce it to the equestrian sport.
For me it’s super important to take good care of horses, and I do this in lots of different ways. Today’s tip has to do with cooling the horse’s legs, something I do after an intensive training session, after a competition or if the horse has an injury. The reason why I cool their legs after a training session or a competition is to avoid injuries and to make everything as comfortable for the horse as possible.
A lot of people ask me about how I motivate myself to keep going, especially if I’ve just been to a competition that didn’t go very well. First of all, it’s really about having a dream and communicating that dream to the people around you, telling them where it is that you want to go. In that way, they can help you get there, because they know exactlywhatit is that you want to do.
