Live Training with Jana Freund
powered by STÜBBEN
Jana Freund, “Miss Bundeschampionat”, began her riding career as a youngster at the Stücker holiday stables, owned by the Wilbers family, where she presented riding ponies for breeding and sport. Jana is particularly in her element at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf, where she has so far won no less than 23 titles and more than 50 medals. As well as qualifying several times for the finals of the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses, Jana also managed to clinch the title in 2008 with her horse Dramatic. In the meantime, Jana has found her professional home in the Schattauer stables in Alpen on the Lower Rhine, where she trains and rides dressage horses and ponies as well as giving riding lessons. She has also made a name for herself as a successful coach over the last few years, with many of her pupils having been successful in international pony competitions and at the Bundeschampionat in the meantime.
Together with several young talented duos, Jana presented different training segments that go into developing a successful sports pony. Our pint-sized 4-legged athletes demonstrated that, although pony classes only extend to elementary level, these ponies can do an awful lot more!
