Pia was born on August 6, 1984 in Oberhausen, Germany. Since her parents always kept horses, she grew up with ponies and horses and went to her first show at the age of three.
Jumping has always fascinated her and at the age of thirteen Pia was part of the German ?Bundeskader?.
After graduating from school, she went on to train as a veterinary assistant. She then joined the team of ?Pferdepraxis im Sudenhof?, where she had a great time and gained a lot of experience with Marc Suls and Eberhard Mettenleiter.
After working for several years in the clinic in Hagen am Teutoburger Wald, Pia returned to the jumping world. Here the knowledge she has gained as a veterinary assistant is invaluable for her in training her horses and making sure they are as healthy and fit as possible for the start of the 1.60m classes.
Pia is delighted to be part of the VIA NOVA team.
