Yvonne Österholm - (FIN) Professional rider 

We are proud to present our profile rider Yvonne Österholm, Finland.

Yvonne has been riding for as long as she can remember. She quickly followed in her older sisters' footsteps, initially riding both dressage and show jumping. She switched to the big horse at an early age and spent all her free time on the horses.

Yvonne comes from Finland but moved to Sweden to start as a riding apprentice with Jan Brink. She stayed and worked as a rider with Jan for six years. She also had the opportunity to work for six months as a rider at a dressage stable in Germany. After that she returned to Sweden and since 2011 runs her own business on a nice farm in Torna Hällestad in Skåne.
