SPONSORED RIDERS

Susanna originates from Finland where she started horse riding at the age of 6. Starting competing in early age in show jumping and later in dressage has resulted in a competition career spanning over 30 years. In Finland she competed in the advanced level and after moving to Dubai she reached the highest level in UAE, Prix St Georges, with her previous horse Tristan. Together they had a very successful partnership over 6 years winning several titles including the FEI World Dressage Challenge in 2011 in Advanced level.

Susanna’s current horse Don Rodolfo is an 8 year Hannoverian by Don Frederico and Rotspun. She bought the horse in an auction from Germany. Having viewed the catalogue of horses online, Susanna straight away had her eyes set on Don and flew over to see him. After a successful bid over the phone, the match was made. From a green 4 year old to now a lot of training and practice has been put in but Don has steadily risen to be one of the top horses in the UAE. Last season they were second in the FEI World Dressage Challenge in Medium level. This season they have move up to Advanced Medium with goals to reach Prix St Georges next season. The 2016-2017 competition season has started well for this couple, winning all the competitions so far.
