Two Star Swedish President at Kihikihi

Two Star Swedish President at Kihikihi

Christina Klingspor has travelled the world judging at all sorts of events, but her trip to Kihikihi is her first to New Zealand.
The Swedish horsewoman will be the president of the 2* jury, and she’s very excited about it all.
A former eventer and showjumper, she has lived nearly all her life in Sweden, bar two years in the United States where she trained with George Morris.
“I am very excited to be part of the Kihikihi International,” says Klingspor, who lives with her family on a farm an hour south of Stockholm.
She officiates at many events – from small 1* competitions in Poland and Europe, through to the 4* Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, and others in Australia, India, Brazil and Argentina.
“New Zealand will be a new experience because I have never been there before. I am very curious to see how the competition is. I am looking forward to being part of a good team with lots of experience.”
Klingspor, who studied human resources at university, gave up her competitive eventing and showjumping to focus on business and family, while riding and judging dressage.
She now works as a consultant while running her family’s stables, where they have 24 horses.
“I ride every day at home and just love to spend time in the stables.”
