Alan Kelly was 17 years old when he left his native country of Ireland and moved to Germany to advance his professional career as an equestrian. It was no other than Paul Schockemöhle whom Alan could train under and gather his first experiences as a professional equestrian with.
Alan joined the Peters family in January 2017, and has been competing as a member of the Lux-Horses team ever since. Where his tasks are concerned, he finds himself in a broadly diversified position. "Training young horses and pushing them forward, but also developing already trained horses further in the sport" – these are the motives he describes his work with.
Alan Kelly holds the Golden Riding Badge and can look back on multiple wins and placings in major trophies and championships. One example amongst many other triumphs is the over 1.9 m six bar jumping victory at the Roeser CSI** with Calippa.
Andreas Jecker, a native of the German Emsland region, discovered equestrianism for himself at the age of 16. He developed his professional career in the Netherlands and Germany, where he worked as a horsebreaker in various stables. To be named as a special highlight of his professional career so far is certainly his one-year stay in Taiwan, where Andreas was able to train young talents and provide their riders with comprehensive tournament support.Andreas Jecker has been part of the Lux-Horses team since 2018. As a salaried horsebreaker, he presents the horses at tournament events in cooperation with Alan Kelly.
