“It was a really good and very busy year! The horses have been great, like for example Hansson WL who was new for us this year. He did a fantastic season with the win in Cannes and the second place in Doha as highlights. Then H&M Catch Me Not S, who came during the summer and started off by winning the derby in Falsterbo and later on was double clear in the Nations Cup Final in Barcelona.

The WEG wasn’t a success individually, but to take a medal with the team was amazing! H&M Christian K wasn’t really planned for the WEG, but he did really well. We had our hopes for H&M All In, but he wasn’t ready for the WEG. We are so happy he came back properly at the end of the season though. 

When it comes to others that have impressed during 2018, I would like to mention all the young riders. Not only Irma Karlsson and Stephanie Holmen from Sweden, but also Harry Charles and the rest of the young generation that really made a step up during the year. And of course I have to mention Simone Blum and Alice that were just outstanding at the WEG. Very impressive!

I would also like to take my hat off for all the grooms who are doing an incredible job. It is hard to mention one, since everyone is doing kind of the same and are working very hard. 

For next year our first goal is to jump the World Cup Final at home in Sweden. We have 40 points now, so that should be enough even though we would be happy with some more. We haven’t really planned further than that, but I guess that the next big goal would be the Europeans in Rotterdam. As Sweden is already qualified for the Olympics, we don’t have that pressure on us.”
