Information

Marina Mattsson was born 1994 and raised at the family’s riding school in Uppsala. When Marina was 13 years old they moved to a farm in Skåne outside Hörby, where they lived for 4 years. Now they have left Skåne and moved to Lynga Gård in Falkenberg, Halland, Hannell Dressage, where Marina is employed as a rider.

Marina started training for Jan Brink via Plantskolan when she was 14 years old. At that time Marina was still competing ponies but had started to ride horses as well. Marina trained horses for Jan who quickly found the horse Beckham for her – a horse that with Marina’s talent as a rider has won a number of Swedish Championship gold medals and together they have even competed several Nordic Championships and European Championships.

Marina is now sponsored with horse material by Hannell Dressage and trains at the Hannell Dressage Team for Jan Brink several times a month.

“Marina is one of the greatest talents I have ever seen and it shall be exciting to guide her and follow her career in the future – if she continues to develop as of yet there is only one road and that goes to the Olympics!”, Jan Brink comments.
