Kristina, and her showjumper cousin, Jan, are based at the Gestüt Sprehe, owned by her father and his brother. Kristina has a degree in Business Administration.
Riding the Hanoverian stallion, Desparados, she was in the German silver medal winning team at the London Olympics (individually 8th), the gold medal winning team at the Euros at Herning (5th) and the Gold Medal team at the WEG in Normandy 2014 (4th and 3rd)
Kristina told THM she was surprised to find herself at the London Games:
“It was a big surprise for me – if you’d asked me six months ago, there is no way I would be in the team, but luckily I am very calm and can just concentrate on what I have to do. I don’t think about anything else, just focus on the competition.”
