I gained the "Basispass Pferdekunde" in 2011, where you learn about horses in general . For example you are learning about poisonous plants, diseases and their symptoms and how to groom and feed a horse. The year after I achieved the "Deutsches Reitabzeichen RA5", which qualifies you to participate in show, which are under the official show rules of the National Federation (NF).
I volunteered at a Summer Camp at my barn for 2 weeks. I also have a driver license.
Equine Work Experience
I started riding when I was 6 years old. After two years, I started jumping and riding more than once per week. Since I'm 13 years old, I'm riding 3 times or more per week. For a long time of my riding career, until the age of 15, I was riding mostly school horses. I gained a lot of experience with them, especially with riding young or problem horses. I owe them most of my secure seat in the saddle and keeping calm on a nervous horse.
Before I moved to the U.S. I had a leasing horse for one year and I learned a lot with her. After moving to the U.S. in August 2015 I had a lease on a horse for two years. She was almost like an own horse and it was really nice to experience that! While leasing her I had the opportunity to ride three other horses as well.
I schooled horses over a 1.10 course and I jumped 1.20 single fences. I have jumped a few cross-country, but I never had the opportunity to do more of it.
I also enjoy to go on trail rides, ride bareback or to lunge the horse.
I'm a responsible, friendly, adventures person, who is not afraid to work hard. I can manage my time and I don't like unfinished work. I'm patient and calm with horses.
I showed in Introductory Level Dressage classes and in 0.80-0.90 jumping classes in Germany. After moving to the U.S. I showed in the 2'6'' Hunter Division. I'm familiar with the German and American Horse Show System.
