Valerie could ride before she could walk and has lots of experience. She was in the pony dressage and eventing squads in Hessen and has competed successfully in show jumping up to a high level.
She trained with Mark Todd and Andrew Scott during her time in New Zealand. It came as no surprise that once she finished studying media and communication management that she then wanted to complete her classic riding traineeship.
Valerie is an open minded and helpful person. She is brave and secure in the saddle and is able to adapt very quickly to various types of horses.
Valerie, our other trainee, Milea and the work experience student hold the fort at home when Carmen and I are away at competitions.
As Milea applied for a position with us, there was unfortunately no room for a working student. So instead she started with Sophie Leube, one of my former riders. She made a lasting impression there!
The way she treats the horses, her friendly and willing attitude immediately impressed all of us too.
Milea is hard working, knowledgeable and trust worthy. In the saddle she has a balanced seat and lots of feel.
She is in charge of the Open Training, together with our other working student.
