Ursula has a background as a successful eventing rider (European Champion with the German team), a qualified 'Pferdewirtschaftsmeister' (equal to level 3 Coach on the international scale) and a German-qualified Vet. These useful skills make Paradise Stud Equestrian Centre a versatile and busy place. Paradise Stud has also been host to the biggest Level 1 EFA exams, with Chief Examiner Mary Hovers (SA) praising Paradise Stud for its excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings. Since commencing Paradise Stud, Ursula has also hosted many successful school training camps.
Ursula has produced many excellent purebred Hanoverian foals in her short time breeding in Australia. The first two horses bred by her in Australia were sold overseas: an excellent showjumper went to New Zealand and an outstanding dressage horse went to the USA, successfully competing and winning numerous championships.
Recently Ursula sold a top eventer to Sydney as well as a superb dressage horse to a Sydney Grand Prix Rider. Moreover numerous horses were sold locally to dressage and eventing riders.
