Horses

I have always been a "horse girl" along side with my interest for dogs and animals in general.I have owned my own pony, and 3 different horses throughout the years.
I competed on a national level in show jumping for over a decade.
I achieved quite nice results in show jumping competitions up to 130 -135 cm classes.
I competed in the "1st division" with several different show jumping clubs. I have won - and been placed as a medalist in regional championships and cups numerous times.

I have also worked as a show jumping teatcher, and worked on Norways biggest show jumping events, such as Norway Grand Prix and Oslo Horse Show. I was even an approved show jumping judge (I still am, but I do not practise any more as I find no time).
Currently, I do not own a horse, as I have prioritized my family and doggies, but it is certainly something I miss, and I do hope it will be a part of my life again sometime in the future.
The doggies were always joining me to the stable, and would run freely alongside me and my horse on long trips in the forrest. My first Basenji, Shira, was even a very good rider, and would jump up on a horse-back on command to take a little ride. She was the mascot of the stable, and I do not think anyone who got to know her will ever forget that beautiful, funny, determent, riding Basenji.
