HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR THIS YEAR’S BIG CHAMPIONSHIP – THE WORLD EQUESTRIAN GAMES IN SEPTEMBER?
”It’s still a long way to go of course, and you don’t really know what might happen along the way. But I always try to develop new ways to train the horses. Right now I’m working on a track in the woods, it’s sort of hilly and provides good variation for the horses. I’m also building a water gym for them.”
AND AS FOR YOURSELF – DO YOU STILL DO YOGA EVERY MORNING?
”At least five days a week. It’s such a good way to start the day – I do it even before I check my phone in the morning. It helps me prepare mentally and take control of the day before it starts, before people start asking things from me.”
Peder Fredricson hopes his three top horses will be ready for the World Games come September.
”H&M All In, my most experienced horse, has been injured for a while. I just started training him again, and he feels great. We’ll have to see how he feels one month at a time, but I really hope he will be ready. H&M Christian K had great success last year, his capacity is huge. He’s sort of like a bulldozer – super strong and always wants to go forward, but still careful and precise when he jumps.”
”Hansson WL is not my horse, so I can’t really count on him – he might get sold before the championship. He’s super careful, and very intelligent. I would say they all are!”
