Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? She began riding at age 10 in Birkerod, Denmark.
Why this sport? She pleaded with her parents to let her start riding for a year before they relented. "My parents hoped that my interest in horses would evaporate with time, but I just took to it. I wanted to ride, but I had to pay for everything. I delivered newspapers and worked as a nanny, a baker, and a cleaner after school to pay for my horse."
