About us

 

Per-Ola Forsberg

Per-Ola developed a dedication for horses from very early age, constantly seeking knowledge and combining it with experience to a successful philosophy with the wealth of the horse in the focal point. Practicing different disciplines widened the understanding of all the facets there is to the horse and what it takes to develop performers. From a jumping career in the early days the interest gradually was passed onto horse racing and the thrill of bringing a fragile juvenile to success on the race track. This taught him the necessary care and attention to breeding, feeding and training a young growing horse, a skill which he has passed onto the breeding philosophy of show jumpers.

Since early years of the 21st century the show jumpers gained more attention in his life. Especially the combination with thoroughbreds in the blood lines of internationally successful show jumpers attracted Per-Ola´s attention.

Per-Ola has a B.Sc degree in Economics from the Lund University and has had a professional career in leading positions in banking, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and life science industry. Per-Ola is a member of the Swedish Jockey Club.

Josefine Forsberg

Josefine, a certified C-trainer in jumping, has been successful in show jumping on pony as well as on horses. She has participated in several Swedish Masterships with good results. She has a natural sense of pace and has produced really good results, starting with unproven horses and taking them all the way up to success at 145 level. In 2005, the last year of her junior career, she was among the top ten junior riders in Sweden.  The year after, she refocused and concentrated more on the young horses produced at the farm. She has since then qualified and competed several 4, 5 and 6 year olds at the youngster competitions, Breeders Trophy at Flyinge and Swedish Open in Falsterbo.

In 2009 she has combined riding with studies in Sport Psycology at the Lund University and is now working with clothes, design and fashion in Paris.
