In the south of Germany and with the support of her family, the hobby of horse riding got serious very quickly as she earned a place on the provincial young riders team at the 1,30 level.
Following high school, Anika began her education in the horse world with a coveted apprenticeship at the stable Klatte. While working for Klatte she learned a great deal about young horse development, Oldenburger breeding programs, stallion selection and licensing and the inner workings of the ESI Auction.
Upon the completion of her equestrian education, Anika took the opportunity to broaden her knowledge by travelling the world and visiting equestrian centres in such places as: Sweden, America, and Australia.
Deciding to continue her education, she enrolled in a Bachelor or Arts in Marketing close to home and simultaneously also ran a small stable developing young horses and coaching riders.
Anika completed her Bachelor of Arts in 2017 and immediately came on board with the Horse Agency. You will see her often out at competitions developing young horses and competing up to the 1.45/1.50 level.
