I was passionate about horse riding from a very young age. I was successfully competing in show jumping at national as well as international level with the most significant achievement being the title of Vice-Champion of Poland in the Youth category. I was trained by the 8-times medallist of Polish National Championship and participant of the 2004 Olympics Grzegorz Kubiak and since 2010 we are still collaborating.
Currently, I am working as an assistant trainer at the Sabo Eventing Newport Mesa Riding Center, CA, and starting my own business as a horse broker between Poland and the US.
Hopefully, my horse riding passion will connect again with flute playing soon!
TELEMANN OUVERTURE ON THE HORSEBACK?!
Yes it is! I recorded this short video as a promotional material for one of my concerts with Silesia Chamber Music Orchestra in Poland. I trained this horse, Bizarro, for a few weeks to make him obedient and able to "dance" with me while I am playing flute on his back. It seems that he enjoyed our little adventure!
DO YOU WANT TO SEE ME IN ACTION?
This is one of my last shows before moving to the US. Nowadays, I am enjoying horse riding and jumping just a few times a month and I don't have any horse on my own. This one, Bizarro, was my partner for 8 years, I breed him in Poland and sold him to the most lovely girl in the world. Thanks to him and this sale, I was able to finance my studies in Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
