Years of horse experience: 15

Role at Westmanton: Training, teaching, coaching, stable manager, coffee expert

Key professional achievements: Bereiter FN and Zucht und Haltung (agriculture degree and breeding license)

Dressage philosophy: “If you have happy horses you will have happy clients.”

Clients say: “Nicole never misses a thing. My horse has the best care imaginable. (Although she does refuse to let him kiss her on the nose.)”

On the personal side

Favorite movie or book: All comedy movies and The DaVinci Code (in German and English!)

Other interests: The dogs – Vallhunds Livvy and Nick and her border collie, Cooper. Learning to herd sheep with Cooper (in case the horse thing doesn’t work out!)

Horse treat I’m most likely to eat myself: pickles (her horses seem to love them)
