I was interested in horses from an early age. I didn't necessarily learn to ride with my older sister's pony, but rather to use a falling technique, but despite this, or perhaps because of it, horses fascinated me. At the age of eleven, I became the proud owner of a young Freiberger mare, with whom I spent all my free time from then on and who brought me a lot for my riding. It was always clear to me that I wanted to learn a profession in the field of horses. I was particularly fascinated by the craft of blacksmithing. I could spend hours watching our village blacksmith skilfully fitting the horses' shoes. So it was obvious that I became a farrier.
After leaving school I started an apprenticeship as a blacksmith / farrier and as a 23-year-old I opened my own business. Nobody knew me then and since then I have continued to educate myself. I spent a few days every year with my American teacher Ric Redden. In the meantime, I am a sought-after farrier and the company HUFTECH is developing very well. My partners support me in this demanding job.
