Gitte is born and raised in a small village in Denmark. All her childhood and youth has been spent among horses.
Gitte is a veterinary nurse and has been working at an animal hospital in Copenhagen for 11 years. In the summer 2017 she decided to do something different for one year. She came to Iceland and got a job as a veterinary nurse in an animal hospital here.
While in Iceland Gitte wanted to experience the Icelandic horse in its country of origin. That’s why she happily joined our team at Íslenski Hesturinn as a weekend worker. Gitte has a big passion for the Icelandic horse and enjoys to spend her weekends at the stables.
When she is not spending her weekends riding she loves to explore the beautiful nature of Iceland and also go skiing or swimming.
