About Me

“Working with people and horses is something I love and am very passionate about. It is a lifelong process of change and it keeps me developing as a person.”

I run my business at Widebäck Equestrian Center, a modern equestrian center with excellent facilities, which is situated close to Landvetter Airport just outside Gothenburg. This is where I have my own horses stabled as well as where most of my students come for training.

As a Level B coach in dressage and with an extensive training as a SLR III/ Riding Instructor at the Swedish National Equestrian Center in Strömsholm, one of my strengths is that I have for many years worked with students from L-level to Grand Prix. At all levels – working with my students has been a great pleasure and passion.

I have worked as Manager at the Borås Equestrian Centre and have also been one of the Senior Associates at Öijareds Dressage Center where I managed the business for 10 years.

I am frequently invited to coach or make a guest trainer appearance at various Training Centers around the country and get many invites to hold Clinics and Seminars.

I am also the co-founder and part owner of DressagePower, a successful Equestrian Event company.
