EMMA GROOT
Emma Groot is 14 years old. Emma has been showjumping since she was 5 years old. When Emma was 8 years old in 2010 she won 3 regional championships on her pony Willow Lord! And since then, she has developed into a confident jumper. She is focused on having a good experience with her pony every time she is at a tournament, and she does not compromise with safety nor style in her riding. Yet in a jump-off she can be fast if it counts. Emma competes on a national level on both of her two ponies and she also particpates in the Nordic turnament Baltic Cup, so in 2012 and now again in 2013 Emma is competing in Denmark, Sweeden and Norway.

Emma has high goals and expectations for the future in terms of her life as a showjumper. However right now, Emma enjoys her ponies and all the fun that a lifestyle at the competetions around all of Denmark and the Northern countries offers her.

Besides riding, Emma is an excellent student in school, and she has lots of friends. Emma is fond of music, and she is a pretty good alpine skiier.

Ponies:
Willow Lord is imported from Ireland. Willow measures 131 cm and is 18 years old. Emma and Willow Lord have been together since march 2010. At that time, Willow had not been competing much for a couple of years, so he had to regain condition and Emma him to learn. Willow has a special place in Emma's heart since with him, she has grown as a rider and tried so many things already. Willow is not an easy pony and they certainly have had their ups and downs, but Emma now know him "inside out" and she is able to handle his feisty temperament. The two of them have had some fantastic experiences. They have won 3 regional championships in 2010 and in 2012 they were they placed as number 3 in the Baltic Cup Championship.

Eskehøjgaards Rumle is a New Forrest pony. He measures 130 cm and is 25 years old. Emma and Rumle have been together since April 2011. As his age proves, Rumle is a very experienced jumper having taken many young riders to the top including Danish Jessica Toelstang. Rumle is always ready to work and he is not aware of his age at all. He is very eager to jump and can be pretty fast! Rumle won the small tour at Baltic in Drammen i April 2012 and also in Sweeden did he receive prizes. At national level in Denmark, Emma and Rumle have many prizes and wins.

Ivanhoe is a New Forrest pony. He is actually half brother to Rumle. Emma and Ivanhoe have been together since january 2013. Ivanhoe measures 138 cm and he is Emma's first step moving on to bigger ponies. Ivanhoe is 22 years old but still very fit. Emma and Ivanhoe already has several prizes jumping 90-105 cm. Ivanhoe is a very likeable fellow with an excellent temperament. He is a very good friend in the show arena but also a pony with a nice jump and an eager personality.
