The young pass rider Hannah Österberg was able to win four Swedish and one Nordic championships. The 20-year-old Swedish rider comes from Dalarna in Sweden. At the WM19 she rides as a Young Rider. We met her for an interview.
You started at the age of five on a shetland pony. What made you switch to Icelandic hor- ses later?
I have my fantastic mare Vespa from Bolan- det ,17 y.o. and we are going to participate and compete and show how good we are in Stilpace (PP1),250 m Pace and Speedpace.
What are your timing results?
We have been doing 7.73 sek in Speedpace at the fastest track in Sweden. We also won the Nordic Championship in 250 m pace on 23,38 sek. It is like driving a sportscar when Vespa takes on pace from canter! Now we are going to participate in all three competiti- ons on Thursday to Sunday.
What are your goals and objectives?
The recent days Vespa has been doing really well so we are going put all forces in to take place ́s on the podiums.
