Riding instructor qualification (International level I) from Finnish Equine College (2014), includes training young horses.
Hard working and ambitious 26 years old equestrian professional. Stable manager for Kyra Kyrklund for 3 years. Experienced dressage rider. Working in a dressage stud and training horses from youngsters to higher level. Qualified riding instructor.
I graduated from the Finnish Ypäjä Equine College in October 2014 as a Riding Instructor level 1. As part of my college course I came in England to Snowhill Farm to do work experience for 6 months, where after graduating from college Kyra Kyrklund offered me the position of the stable manager. My main responsibilities in this role was to organize the daily routine on a busy dressage yard and ride some of our horses every day. I have been taught by great riders and trainers, Kyra Kyrklund and Richard White. I have gained a lot of confidence and experience in this job. I left my jog in the spring of 2017 and I started working as a young horse rider/groom in a dressage stud. During the summer I took a few youngsters to their first dressage competitions in Prelim / Novice level. I was very happy with their progress and I had some really nice horses to ride, including a 4 year gelding from Negro. I was trained every few weeks by Paula Sherwood.
3 years of work experience as a stable manager / assistant rider for Kyra Kyrklund. Riding and training with Olympic level horses and worlds best trainers. Experienced with piaffe, passage, one-tempi changes etc. Manager experience and able to take sole charge. Training of young horses.
I can ride horses in a good balance and collection, and I can train horses professionally and patiently. I have been riding many Grand Prix level horses and practiced piaffe, pirouettes and flying changes. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to compete or have my own horse but would love the opportunity to compete if that would be possible.
As a part of my Riding Instructor training I have competed up to Medium level in dressage (2014) and 110cm in show jumping. While working at Kyras I trained Grand Prix level movements daily with her experienced horses but unfortunately she is the only one competing her horses so I haven't been able to compete in the level I've been riding for the last years. While I was working in the dressage stud (2017) I took few youngsters to their first dressage competitions in Prelim and Novice level.
