Born: 05/04/1994
Location: Stavanger
Occupation: Rider / student

Started riding: Around 6 years old in a riding school, and got my first pony the year after. I started to compete at the age of 8 and have been part of the Norwegian National Team of Show Jumping since the age of 12. When I was 15 I sold my ponies and bought my first horse. I love my horses and I would like to become a fulltime rider, but since this is quite a risky occupation I will take an education beside, and am now a part-time student at the Norwegian College of Sports.
Present I have only 1 horse of my own, and I have 1 horse in regular training. I actually also have a pony, but he is trained and ridden by another Team Animo Nordic member; Martine Mariero Moe.
Hopefully I will soon find one more horse for myself and by that be able to climb another step on my ladder to become a really good rider. My trainer and coach, Mikael Kolind, whom I train with and for several times a week, is of course also a big contributor in my riding carrier.
I’m lucky and have been able to take part in quite a few big events, and I have learnt a lot from watching some of the best riders in the world. I very much enjoy studying the top-riders, their methods and partnership with their horses.

My biggest achievement in my riding carrier was team Silver Medal in the European Championship for young riders in 2014 in Arezzo.

I was very lucky to become a Team Animo Nordic member in 2015. I really love the fabric and comfort in both the breeches (which is absolutely a must, wearing them 12 hours a day and riding a lot of horses), the jackets, T-shirts and sweaters. Both me and my horses feel well-dressed in our Animo gear well designed and with lots of amazing details making it all kind of special. I feel very lucky and proud to have become a team member.
