1. Please describe your team in three words.

All about love!

2. What was your best (or funniest) vaulting moment as a team?

It’s quite hard to pick one special moment out of all the things we already experienced together. But it may be the feelig right after the dismount when we already know that we have done a really good performance and everything just worked out as we’ve planned it. It’s rare but that’s sometimes what is making all the effort we put in training and creating our freestyle worth it. And probably also the times when just the three of us travel together to a competion because then it’s all just about laughing and eating together.

3. What do you expect from the FEI World Equestrian Games 2018?

A lot of fun and exciting new experiences. We are really happy and proud to get the chance to take part at the WEG and be able to reprensent our country at this competition. We are really looking forward to it and we will try our best to show an accurate, emotional freestyle and fascinate our audience.

4. What’s your freestyle theme 2018 and why?

Based on the last letter of the movie/novel ‘P.S. I love you’ we want to show the story, the memories and the emotions of a loving and unique relationship. It’s kind of a throwback to all the special moments they had together.
