Verden. The world is becoming increasingly connected and globalization has become an essential part of doing business today. With a growing customer base outside the EU, the Hannoveraner Verband also improves its presence all over the world, to provide customers outside the EU with the same service and support that we offer locally. As such we have been successful to recruit US Dressage Rider Jessica Jo "JJ" Tate and her husband Richard Malmgren as operational partners in the US.
Jessica Jo "JJ" Tate is an International rider, trainer, and coach who runs her Team Tate Dressage business out of South Carolina, SC and Wellington, FL. She has ridden over 25 horses in the FEI level, many of them self-trained. In 2006, she was long listed for the WEG and in 2007 she represented the US at the World Breeding Championships in Verden, Germany. JJ Tate is a regular at Region and National Championships at all levels herself as well as mentoring many talented up and coming young professionals. She is a sought after clinician all over the US, known for her positivity and classical approach. "I am really excited to join forces with the Hanoverian Verband and create more success and exposure for the wonderful Hanoverian horses!" JJ Tate says.
JJ Tate will join the team of Sabine Schutt-Kery, Endel Ots, and Kathleen Raine and David Wightman, who already form part of the Hannoveraner Team USA. Our rider partners help us promote good riding and thereby further the Hanoverian Horse in breeding and sport. Above that, JJ Tate will be local point of contact for clinics, training, consultancy, and buying requests. Richard Malmgren, as a long time manager of Hiltop Farm and Hassler Dressage, will be a central point of contact for local breeders and able to provide consultancy, advice, and assistance where needed.
