Maastricht, NED – Feb. 21, 2019 – Shedding light on what it takes to be a successful equestrian rider, trainer and horse seller across international borders, Sorensen Stables is proud to reveal the first of five chapters in its new professional video series, entitled “Bridging the Transatlantic Gap.” The video series follows founder Chris Sorensen through the complex layers of a professional career in the equestrian industry from a childhood love of horses through adolescent training in Europe, a flourishing competitive and coaching career in North America and a recent relocation to the Netherlands. Hailing from Canada and now based in The Netherlands, Sorensen explains his unique position at the intersection between breeders, brokers and competitors in Europe and the needs of the North American market.
Produced by RAVAN Productions, the exquisite video series will capture five main topics:
Sorensen is the owner and head trainer at Sorensen Stables, where he and his team are experts at sourcing high-performance hunter, jumper and equitation sport horses and pairing them with the right rider. In addition to direct horse sales, Sorensen Stables’ offerings also include Pinch Punch First of the Month and THE HUNT European Horse Auction, two inventive solutions to the horse shopping headache for North American buyers. Horses trained and sold by Sorensen Stables have accrued achievements in all corners of the world, including appearances at the FEI World Equestrian Games™, the FEI World Cup™ Finals, USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship, all the major equitation finals and much more.
As an athlete, Sorensen has achieved international success in show rings across the globe in Nations Cup and grand prix competition with his string of elite horses, and he has translated those experiences into an expertise as one of the premiere Canadian trainers for serious students. In 2016, Chris became one of Canada’s first-ever High Performance 1 level certified coaches, and his students have triumphed in hunter, jumper and equitation rings in Europe, North America and Asia.
