Meet Mustad Team Rider: Katja Weimann

It is with great excitement that we introduce the newest member of Team Mustad: Katja Weimann who is a professional eventing rider, embarking on an adventure most of us could only ever dream of!

Late last year Katja was unlucky to have to withdraw her horse BP Flamboyant (Flynn) from the 2016 Rio Olympic selection process. Fortunately the injury was only minor and Flynn bounced back with a 3rd placing at the hotly contested Albury CIC3*.

Fast forward to June 2017 and Katja has relocated her horses to Germany and has been selected as part of the Australian Team that placed second in the Nations Cup at CHIO Aachen. With the 2018 World Equestrian Games firmly in her sight, Katja is a rider that is passionate, committed and ready to take on the world!

Stay tuned to our blog over the next few weeks as we introduce you to Katja’s team of horses!
