"Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise"
Jonna Ekberg, #CharmingJonna first sat on a horse when she was three years old and started taking riding lessons when she was six. Her mother has always been fascinated by horses and encouraged Jonna to take up the sport.
At age 13, Jonna got her first pony, with whom she competed in the European Championships for Ponies. Later, she represented Sweden once again at the European Championships as a junior rider.
When Jonna was 20 years old, she moved to the United Kingdom, where she spent a year working at the Davenport Stables. Her next stop was the Abdel Said Stables in Belgium. She stayed there for 2,5 years, in 2013 she joined the Stephex Stables.
After joining the Stephex Stables, she started by clocking up her first victory in a ranking class. She keeps working hard to participate in the biggest shows and to move up the ranking list. In 2015 she started performing at 5-star level. She loves competing the 5-star competitions but she equally enjoys training the younger horses and seeing them improve.
