Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? She loved horses from an early age. Her parents did not want her to ride because they thought it was too dangerous, preferring her to play the piano and do athletics. At age 12 she secretly went riding with friends. When her parents found out they were angry but realised they could not oppose her passion for horse riding.
Why this sport? Since I was little I have always loved horses. Now I have learned to love the art of dressage
