Dressage

Denise Ljungkvist
She has had a fantastic season, Denise Ljungkvist, winning the U25 Grand Prix and GP Freestyle in Falsterbo and becoming Nordic Champion earlier this summer. Together with her mare Soega, Denise started out competing in show jumping and eventing, but since the horse loved dressage they changed discipline. And for that we are thankful.
