Katharina Hartmann

My name is Katharina Hartmann, I am 25 years old and live in Uedem, Germany.

I have been riding horses ever since I was little and have turned my hobby into my profession. After finishing school, I started my studies in horses, with a focus on riding. I followed an education at dressage stables Gut Rodderhof (Taco Oudewortel and Carsten Peters) in Cologne. After 3 years I successfully completed this education.

After finishing my studies I worked there for another year, but then felt like moving back home. I then started working as a freelancer and rode horses for third parties. In January 2011 I started working with Leonieke van den Brink at dressage stables Odiliahoeve. My job is to break in the young horses and train them in both dressage and show jumping.

Throughout the years I have gained a lot of experience with breaking in young horses. I also participate in a lot of competitions, show jumping as well as dressage. In 2009 I became Kölnstadtmeisterin in show jumping.

I would like to get to know you and your horse at dressage stables Odiliahoeve!

Katharina Hartmann, Odiliahoevel.
