Other information HORSE TRADING
In 2004 she sold her mare Classic H to buyers from the United States of America and used the money to set up her own stables just outside Vasterhaninge, Sweden. It was a difficult decision for her, but she felt the pair of them had reached their maximum potential. She did not have any major sponsors at the time and needed the money to start her business. "It was time for both of us to move on." (teamhelenapersson.se, 08 Jun 2017; hippson.se, 13 Apr 2007)

She intended to study law at university, but took a year off to work with coach Lars Parmler. "I was going to take a gap year before going to university, but the sabbatical year is still going." (textalk.com, 20 Sep 2013)
