Tindra Nilsson

    My name is Tindra Nilsson and I'm 13 years old. I have been riding since I was 8 years old. I have had two B ponies and competed up to national classes in dressage. Now I have a D-pony Eagle Red Chili who is 7 years old. Chili, as I call him, was barely ridden when I bought him and I trained him myself together with my coach Marie Torwaldsson, with the aim set for the big championships.

    The challenge is not to get Chili to do what I want but to have him do it because he wants to. I work on the education scale and do not believe in shortcuts. For me, Chili's well-being is in focus. I strive to become a better rider every day.

    For me, competition is a way to both enrich him and show what we have learned and get a receipt that we are on the right track.
