8 years ago life offered me a big change when I started riding horses. Since that time this took me on a journey with a lot of ups and downs - everybody of you sure knows of what I am talking about. I started my first riding lessons with Sabine who some weeks ago became my beautiful wife and also met a lot of great people. Some of them became friends like Adi Wagner who sure often had a hard time in teaching me reining basics. That 8 years ago I also saw my first Trophy run and decided to take that as my first goal. And it took me till yesterday to make this big dream come true: NRHA Non Pro Morrison Trophy Champion with Elvis 143,5. A heartfelt thanks to everybody who was on my side over the years!!! Sometimes life's just f..... great!
