Filip comes from an equestrian family and has been showjumping for many years. His mother, Karin, is a dressage rider and father Arne has been active in the Jumping world. Nowadays his parents breed horses in the beautiful countryside near the town of Karlstad.
He has represented Sweden at many Championships, including: FEI European Jumping Championships for Ponies in Fontainebleau (FRA) in 2012; FEI European Jumping Championships for Juniors 2013 where he placed fourth; and more recently at the FEI European Jumping Championships 2014 in Arezzo where he came ninth.
Filip is one of the students in a project developed by Daniel Bergqvist for the Swedish Equestrian Federation and led by Swedish rider Jens Fredricson for talented young riders at the riding school of Strömsholm in Sweden. It’s a one year programme with a very holistic approach which focuses not only on the riding side of things but also on mental training, leadership, teambuilding, media preparation and develop an identity/brand in sport.
