“I am so lucky. I have 10 horses that I think are top horses. They are at different levels at the moment, and I am really excited. I am always hungry to win and keep producing those horses. For me, it is about finding that partnership and connection and training them to grand prix level, which to me is as important as winning gold medals. I have always been hungry for it and always wanted it a lot. I am very self-driven and motivated.
