I was born on 19 September 1999, as the fourth daughter of my parents. Sports were always in focus in my family, all of us did sailing, dancing, and riding. While my sister, Mári chose sailing (and competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro since then), I fell in love with horses.
My family owned a riding school, which made me possible to have everyday contact with these amazing animals and learn a lot about them. I soon discovered my affinity for dressage, which I started doing competitively in 2012 with my horse, Carneval. Carneval was an experienced Grand Prix horse, who taught me the important basics of this beautiful sport.
At the end of 2012, I came across an eye-catching, then 4-year-old, bay mare, Balerina Royal whom I fell in love with. In May 2013 a new journey began when my grandparents bought me Balerina Royal, alias Csöpi. We entered our first show in June and we had a great start! We won both our classes, one with over 77%. We continued to work up the levels together and next year we became National Champions in the L category.
Beside Csöpi, at the beginning of 2014, I also did my first international show in FEI Pony division with Day Dream. 2015 was a quiet year for us to prepare for my international debut at FEI Junior level on Balerina Royal. Our first international show was CDIJ Mariakalnok in May 2016 which was a great experience for us (with two 67% and one 69%). Then we traveled to CDIJ Lipica and improved ourselves and the scores (68%, 69%, 71,9%). In June 2016, we accomplished one of our biggest goals for that year by winning the Junior National Championship.
Besides the horses, education was also important for me. In 2016, I was offered a full scholarship at Linden Hall, the United States' Oldest Independent School for Girls. This scholarship was offered by ASSIST, which gives opportunities for outstanding scholars to spend a year at one of the best private schools in the United States. Being in the US also made it possible for me to spend my school breaks working in the "Equestrian Capital of the World", Wellington, Florida. Watching the best of the world competing there didn't just teach me a ton, but also inspired me. Now I know what I have to do to be among the bests one day!
