WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT ONTYTE?
I love the idea that I have such security, and in the 8 years that I’ve ridden in ONTYTE I have never lost my stirrups, not even once. When I have fallen off, I’ve never felt that my feet were attached; the stirrups came right off, so for me this is also security. I think riding with ONTYTE gives you an edge and is the best technology out there, like why wouldn’t you use the best tennis racket or running shoes?
HOW HAS YOUR RIDING CHANGED WITH ONTYTE?
I definitely do think that ONTYTE has changed my ride. A lot of the students that I train have also started riding in ONTYTE, and they can’t get over how much better their position feels. They can concentrate on other things, because their legs are more secure, they have control, and their balance is better.
WHAT’S YOUR TOP TRAINING TIP?
Just keep focusing on what is ahead
WHAT IS YOUR BEST RIDING MEMORY?
My best memory is winning the team gold medal at the Olympic Games in Beijing, where the ONTYTE system was used for the very first time in competition. The system definitely worked!
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR 2016?
I have 2 big goals this year: obviously the Olympics in Rio, and I also have a lot of nice upcoming young horses that I am excited to bring into the top rings.
