Lisa Nooren, daughter of former Dutch star Henk Nooren who now manages the French Jumping team, has been riding for as long as she can remember. She has always been passionate about Jumping, and began competing internationally at the age of 12 on ponies. She has represented The Netherlands on numerous occasions, most recently in Arezzo (ITA) at the FEI European Championships.
In terms of preparation for the Youth Olympic Games, she is accustomed to riding lots of different horses at home so she did not do any specific preparation per se. But it is nevertheless a challenge, as you have to rider the allocated horse which means adapting to its character and style.
Lisa has one year left at school and is undecided as to her next move, although it will definitely involve riding.
