Mike was born with an intense love for horses but it wasn’t before his 22nd birthday when during a holiday in Hungary he could experience the freedom on the back of a cantering horse for the first time. Since then he couldn’t stop riding anymore and he enjoyed learning from well-known horse trainers as well as from the horses themselves. He became a master in horse handling and behaviour management and has earned two diplomas with the EWU, Germany’s First Western Riding Union and the FN, German Equestrian Federation.
