Fans, media and miljonhästar – now shall the promise be guided right

It laughed loud and often in the hotel conference room where a movie with the two mentors and their new mentees should be recorded.

Malin Baryard Johnsson tries to keep order in everything and everyone, and when she tells them that they shall sit down is Peder Fredricson the first to obey.

"He knows when I mean business," says Malin Baryard Johnsson with a smile.

Hoppryttarna 17-year-old Janelle Larsson and 16-year-old Ingemar Hammarström mostly look so happy as you do when you are a teenager and most things in life are new and exciting.

this is the first time that Janelle and Ingemar makes something official together with his new mentors Malin and Peder.

"I was really pleased when I was told that I would receive the scholarship," says Ingemar Hammarström.

Janelle Larsson nods in agreement:

" I was also happy and a little proud.

Malin Baryard johnsson's faithful sponsor an annual scholarship in her name to celebrate that it was 20 years ago Malin broke through.

the Fellow may, in addition to 50,000 crowns also Malin Baryard Johnsson as a mentor for a year.

this year, a scholarship has become two, and the number of mentors doubled.

– I have a colleague who sits on the right amount of knowledge, and it felt foolish not to make use of it, " says Malin Baryard Johnsson and look at Peder Fredricson, who since many years are included in the same sponsorteam.

– in Addition, there were two strong candidates this year that we had a hard time to choose. Janelle and Ingemar are both amazing riders with great potential.

when he was asked if he was prepared to stand up as a mentor.

" Looking at Malin's and my history, we both have along the way had people who have meant a lot to us. Malin was with John (Whitaker), and I had the great help of Jan Jönsson (former head coach) and Mark Todd (OLYMPIC gold medalist in eventing), " said Peder Fredricson.

" It means that we know how much it means to get that help, and we can give it to others, it feels good.

at home on the farm outside of Norrköping, and went directly after she finished high school in England to be a student and work for John Whitaker.

She'd stopped there in six months, but remained for over two years.

– the Time of John gave me a lot as a rider. Thanks to him I got to example the chance to get out and compete in events that I otherwise would not have been invited to, which gave me important experience, " says Malin.

" But it was also an important time for me as a person. I have amazing parents who have always supported me, but it was very stimulating and instructive for me to move out and stand on their own legs.

change is the sport no protected haven where everything is as it always has been. Even if the talent and träningsvilja forever remain the most important factors to succeed, it is required in the day more about their sports career will be long and successful.

"It has changed a lot just since I was young," notes 44-year-old Malin.

Social media is now an integral part of every athlete's everyday life – in any case, for those concerned with an individual sport.

Through their own channels, they can themselves form the image of themselves as athletes, and in this way create a brand, which in turn can open the roads to the sponsors.

This last point is important in all sports, but perhaps extra much within the historic boundaries of where good horses cost millions of dollars and good relations with the sponsors and horse owners is important.

in Addition, today's young athletes learn to navigate in a in many ways, the new media landscape, where many want to have a small part of them.

"Hopefully we can help them to find ways that suits them," says Malin.

age , the two fellows have already managed to get a lot of medievana.

Ingemar is already something of a tv star as one of the main characters in the SVT's reality series ”the Family Hammarström”.

In the series get tv audience to meet Ingemar, together with their parents and his nine brothers and sisters. The family Hammarströms life revolves around horses, but as in most other families, it happens to a lot of other things, too.

Janelle Larsson has gotten accustomed to the attention of the other reasons.

When you have a father named Henry and is a fotbollslegendar, and a big brother named Jordan and play in the premier league, has Janelle already had to learn a lot about how the media works.

"Yes, a little bit anyway, but I still can find that it can be hard to be interviewed," says Janelle.

Ingemar and Janelle will be a part of in the coming year, all communication in English.

" I'm going To give one piece of advice to young people today is that they should put the time in to learning several languages. I regret it that I did not, " says Peder.

" What they want to do in the future, they will have the benefit of it, not least in the ridsportvärlden.

Both Malin and Peder are the parents of sporting children, even if kids have chosen other sports than riding.

– As a parent, you should obviously support, encourage and be positive, but also be sure to have a good distance, and let the young people determine the direction. You need to be careful not to live their own idrottsdröm through their children, " says Malin.

In the end, it is important that they have fun with their sport. The day the joy is gone yesterday it still won't perform.

Peder nods in agreement:

– the Driver must be for the person who will exercise the sport, and it must be as a parent to understand and accept.

Larsson and Ingemar Hammarström is all the inner drive needed to succeed.

For these two teenagers is most of their lives on horses.

Last summer won Ingemar Hammarström as the fourth Swedish rider ever gold medal in the european pony CHAMPIONSHIPS.

One of those who made it before him is Malin Baryard Johnsson.

Now, Ingemar left the ponnytiden for juniorklasserna on the big horse.

in last year's JEM on the big horse, and on Saturday, she reached one of her biggest success when she won the prestigious Kraft Cup in Scandinavium despite the fact that she was startfältets youngest riders.

" this victory says a lot about Janelle. She has that special ability to be the best when it comes to, praises Malin.

Although mentoring is a shared will to Malin to have a slightly closer cooperation with Janelle, and Peter Ingemar.

– But the bottom line is that we now belong to the same team, and in a team helps you, " says Malin.

the four horsemen going on to international competitions at the Scandinavium arena.

After a while we leave, therefore, to the conference room to go to the fairgrounds where they will be signing autographs in a booth.

– this is The first time I do something like this, " says Janelle.

She continues with a smile:

– Hope someone wants my autograph.

worry about. As we approach the booth, the queue is so long that we don't even see the end of it.

Janelle kidding with Ingemar:

– It is your fans who are waiting for. Soon, they start to scream like at a concert.

the Queue continues to grow and even if all four write autographs – and set up on the selfies – at a pace that most closely resembles the rapid omhoppningar they would otherwise tend to bid on so can't see it.

Janelle Larsson and Ingemar Hammarström has received a first taste of what life as a ryttarstjärna is, and now they know that they will get help to cope with all the new.

The peace of mind is worth a lot.
