Welcome to the Wesko Equestrian Foundation

The Wesko Equestrian Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded in memory of Christina Knudsen and her passion for the sport of Eventing.

The Foundation’s mission is to honour Christina’s last wish in helping secure the future of young riders around the world. We aim to do this by bringing education and training to talented young riders and facilitate new opportunities for young people within the equestrian community.



The Young Eventers’ Programme offers our riders a in-depth training that includes a mentorship with Pippa Funnell, winner of The Rolex Grand Slam, three-time winner of Badminton, two-time winner of Burghley and two-time Individual European Champion. The riders are also supported by a specialist team including Olympic Event Rider and former Team GBR Eventing World Class Performance Manager, Yogi Breisner.


Alongside the mentoring that Pippa provides to our Riders (both on and off the horses), the programme also offers them support in a number of business-focused areas including economics and finance, media communication, mental coaching and an educational look at Equine Veterinary Science.
