Young Finnish rider, Anna-Julia Kontio is mostly known for being the girlfriend of one Martin Fuchs. But make no mistake, it doesn't take her riding talent away. As soon as she began competing in showjumping at age 9, she has developed a real passion for this sport and began professional when she turned 18. In 2013 she decided to leave Finland and moved to Switzerland in order to be coached by Thomas Fuchs. The international champion has given her the opportunity to set foot into the five stars shows and more importantly, to be prepared for that. Today, she already has a lot of wins and ranks in 2*/3* classes and Grand Prix but with this combination, she can fully train and prepare her long and promising career.
