Currently Finnish Anna-Julia Kontio is in on-off mode: When she left Martin Fuchs’ yard in Switzerland for her home country she put her career on hold. In the beginning of the year she was employed by J.S. Sportpferde but that did not last for long. In April she said she would stop riding for the time being and search for a new challenge. However, now she is back in the saddle once again: The 26-year-old now rides for the Marschall stable in southern Germany. The contact came to pass through stable manager Paulina, who is also Finnish. Kontio’s new boss, Manfred Marschall, wants to develop a concept to facilitate Anna-Julia Kontio’s success.
