After graduating from school, I decided to become a veterinarian's assistant – it was my dearest wish! During the years 2005 and 2007 I worked at the Veterinary Clinic Sudenhof and didn't have much time for riding or shows. But I never regret this period in my life – what I learned about equine medicine has been of immeasurable value for training my own horses and keeping them healthy.


But the day came when riding was once again the most important thing in my life. After a longer stay in Italy where I trained under the tutelage of the Olympic winner, Ulrich Kirchhoff, I quickly made up for lost time.


From 2009 to 2019 I again lived and worked with my parents at their facility in Ahaus – and the "emperor", Heinrich-Wilhelm Johannsmann and the Team-Worldchampion Markus Merschformann and Norbert Nuxoll gives me tips from time to time. Then my coach was the Worldchampion Franke Sloothaak.


Aside from competing in international shows, I also train and get talented youngsters ready for shows , sell horses and help people find the horses they are looking for. My dream has become reality and so it doesn't bother me too much that I don't have much time for my other passions such as playing the guitar.
