How To Stay Focused

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.

What To Look For In A Trainer

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.

Sportsgalla 2018

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.

How I Motivate Myself

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.

In that way, they can help you get there, because they know exactly what it is that you want to do.
