Career and Career History

Everything starts early...

Already as a little kid Melina made contact with the horses. She inherited the horse virus from her father, who successfully breeds sport horses. In the age of four Melina rode her first show with her pony pamela. It followed the Pony Suleika, but the first medals had some time to wait.  A fact that Melina´s ambition did not diminish, quit the opposite.

They found together and achieved many golden medals in dressage and jumping tests. Lanciano was the name of Melinas Junior Success-horse, father Johannes was the breeder and Melina educated him by herself. With the gelding Melina rode in the age of 14 her first Grand Prix and they achieved a lot of success in junior Championships for their home country Germany.
