In May 2017 we went to Hungary for two weeks. We visited the International Horseback Archery Grand Prix at Némethy Horseback Archery Academy. I met a lot of very good horseback archers from all over the world.
During this stay in Hungary I trained with Christoph Némethy in Pomaz for two weeks. For the first time in my life I shot arrows from a horseback and I loved it. I did not want to go back to the Netherlands and asked my father to find a job in Hungary.
Training on Rambo in Pomaz
In October 2017 trained with Christoph again for three weeks. He helped me to become a better horseback archer. After this training I could shoot 8 arrows in one run!
Training with Mirza
At home I train with Jannet van Wijk, endurance rider. We ride outside with her horses and are training them for horseback archery.

In July 2018 I started at the Open World Championships Horseback Archery in Pomaz, Hungary. I rode Csalogány. To be better prepared I trained a week before the competition in Pomaz. To see my results you can read my blog pages.
