We were so fortunate to get a guided tour at Tullstorp, the world famous dressage stable run by Jan Brink. Situated only fifteen kilometres from where we live, this was a fantastic opportunity for a look into another world.
As a young boy Jan Brink played hockey in his home village, but as all the young girls were hanging at the stable, he gave the horses a chance…In some months he was hooked, and this was to be his future career. He studied at Flyinge and in Germany for some years, and then went for an international career.
Brink has won five medals in international championships, and in 2005 he was the first Swede to win the dressage championship in Aachen.
Jan Brink is a self-made man, and unbelievably hard working. Going for shampionships, educating new horses and riders – and top class horse breeding serving customers all over the world. According to him, having talent is far from enough – you must be prepared to work hard and go for your dreams.
The magnificent Tullstorp was built by a humble man, and a perfectionist – Jan Brink. Every detail in harmony.
The dressage arena…in late evening light. Thank you, Jan, for a magnificent tour!
