FEI World Equestrian Games™ gold medallist Stinna Kaastrup discusses her beloved horse and how she has overcome adversity...

Following Stinna's  success at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2018 in Tryon, we caught up with the Para Dressage rider and her horse Smarties in Denmark.

 

Stinna took home two gold medals at WEG 2018 and said the amazing achievement is “out of this world.”

 

She remembers: “I screamed my lungs out. It’s more than I ever dreamed of."

 

While WEG was a huge goal for Stinna and Smarties this year –it will be the pair’s last championship together. Stinna has pegged much of her success on her equine partnership with Smarties.

 

“He’s perfect for me. We’re good for each other,” she said.  

 

Since her success at WEG, Stinna has been nominated for 2018 best athlete, which she said is an “honour I can’t describe.”

 

Looking ahead, Stinna has set her sights on her next big goal: “I need a Paralympic gold.”
