Biography
General Interest
Famous relatives His mother Line Thorning Jorgensen represented Denmark in dressage at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. (2012.paralympic.dk, 25 Aug 2014; rideforbund.dk, 01 Aug 2013)
Impairment In 2013 he was diagnosed with myopathy, a condition that means that muscle fibers do not function correctly. (dhif.dk, 16 Sep 2015)
Other information SWITCHING DISCIPLINES
He was involved in equestrian jumping as a boy but switched to Para dressage in 2013 after he was diagnosed with myopathy. The condition affects the muscles in his back. "At first I was anxious, but finding dressage meant I could still continue to ride horses. When I was showjumping, my back meant I could only ride one day a week so I had to give it up. Of course I still miss it." (dhif.dk, 16 Sep 2015)
