(24.12.2015) Dear friends and fans, horse owners and sponsors – a sincere thank you for your precious support during the past year. Your loyalty means a lot to me! I am looking back on an intense 2015 with many success, but also some painful experiences. My worst day was the 9th November when my little dog Nounou lost his life in an accident. He was my best friend. I keep thinking of him every day, and from that moment on I knew that now it can only get better. – The sport has become very intense and capricious. Pressure has increased on the riders. Many people want big success with their horse. Defeats tend to be dramatized. And some do forget that man and horse are no machines. Success cannot be forced. It takes time until horse and rider become the perfect team. All the more I would like to thank all horse owner who give me and my horses time and plan a season with me. I am looking forward to next year with all its sporting challenges. Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2016!
