Mike Pen is Off to Germany to Work for Michael Jung

Mike at the airport, ready to jet off to Germany!

We are wishing my assistant rider Mike Pen the best for the next month as he’s off to the south of Germany to work for German Olympian and World Champion Michael Jung.

Mike has been a hard worker for me for the past six or seven years and this is a terrific opportunity for him. A big thanks to Felix Vogg, my Swiss mate who has also worked for Michael Jung, for helping to work out the details. This is an awesome opportunity for Mike to have an international work experience and learn behind the scenes with arguably the best event rider in the world.

Thanks to the group of owners who were generous enough to chip in for Mike’s flight, accommodations and spending money to keep him going while he’s over there. It’s very generous of them to help the next generation; Mike has ridden a number of Boyd’s young horses for his existing owners and has done a good job helping produce the horses at Windurra.  It’s wonderful that these owners are getting behind Mike and helping him develop to the next level as a top rider for the USA. This is a great help to Boyd as well, as Mike will bring his experiences back and apply what he has learned in his training here at home.

Mike has worked exceedingly hard for us at Windurra and we are thrilled for him to have this opportunity and looking forward to hearing about his adventures and what he’s learned when he returns.
