Biography
General Interest
Superstitions / Rituals / Beliefs "I am quite obsessive before and during the big shows. If my steps match so I can kick a stone with my right leg, it's a really good thing. But if a pea drops from my fork, that's really bad. The list is almost endless. However, the craziness has its purpose. When out of my comfort zone, it makes me feel safe because it's something I'm familiar with, and it usually prevents me from getting nervous." (thehorseridersjournal.com, 17 Jun 2016)
Awards and honours She was presented with the Olympic Hope Award at the 2016 Danish Broadcasting Corporation [DR] Sports Gala. The honour is given to young Danish athletes with the potential to succeed at future editions of the Olympic Games. (dr.dk, 07 Jan 2017)

She received the Classic Style Award at the 2010 European Junior Championships in Kronberg, Germany. (thehorseridersjournal.com, 17 Jun 2016)
Other information RIO BLUES
She found the build up to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro to be stressful, particularly as she had only recently moved from the Danish junior teams into the senior squad. She had also never competed outside of Europe before, and had little experience at major tour events. "When my parents invited friends back home I really didn't want them to come because I didn't want to talk about the Olympics. I think we talked about the Olympics every day for maybe a year. I was totally fed up with it. I was like, 'No, I don't want to talk about it', so I was quite isolated. When I got back home after the Olympics I hit a black hole. I didn't want to ride. I had some good younger horses in the stable and I sold them immediately to get them away from me. I really needed a break. It was really a tough year." (dressage-news.com, 09 Nov 2017)
