FROM ME TO YOU
FROM EQUESTRIAN FIELD
TO THE LIFE
I have almost an instinct to philosophize about my sport. This has been heightened during the most challenging cycles of my career, such as after losing a medal at the London Olympics on the final obstacles or going through a difficult recovery from ankle and knee injuries.
But it wasn't just the pain that drove me to apply the lessons of equestrianism to life. It has received the inspiration from the sport with the love of my parents and siblings is an even more powerful and unique seed to share these reflections.
Thus, facilitating your personal development through this sport is sharing a process that I have also experienced with pains and joys of life. That's why welcoming you to my courses brings me genuine satisfaction. More than just technique to improve as a rider, I offer tools and experiences to inspire your personal growth.
