Endurance World...

In Brief: Letícia Szösz (17) from Hungary

I’m Letícia Szösz, 17 years old Hungarian endurance rider.

I live in the southwest of Hungary in a small village called Váralja with my parents and my sister.

My sister Csenge Teodora also does endurance, she is 13 years old and ready for FEI races.

Endurance World Letícia Szösz. Riding with a friendOur father, Attila, always dealt with horses, he was endurance driver which is a special type of endurance. Endurance driving is so special and strange for people; you don’t ride the horse, you sit on a horse carriage. It’s very popular in Hungary.

When I started my endurance career my father stopped driving and both he and my mother are my fixed grooms. Nothing would be possible without them because behind every successful rider there’s a supporting team.

I’ve been riding horses since I can remember and I have been riding endurance competitions since 2012.

In 2015, I won the Hungarian championship with my horse Koheilan Szilaj.
We also won the Hungarian championship’s short distance category two times; in 2015 and in 2016.
Our horse was the most successful endurance horse in 2015.
I got invitations for the UAE President’s Cup twice but unfortunately in 2016 I couldn’t take part. My dream came true and this February we were taking part on this prestigious event.
Two weeks ago, I completed a CEI2* race with Koheilan Adu P so now I have two qualified horses for the junior World Endurance Championship.

Endurance World Letícia Szösz. Riding in HungaryIf a day would be longer than 24 hours I would also do show jumping.
But I think endurance is the most exciting equestrian sport and Arabian horses are the most beautiful and lovely horses. Endurance is the most exciting equestrian sport because riding through the forest, field or desert always reserves surprise.

My family have their own horses. We work with shagya and pure arabian horses.
At competitions, I ride my own horses but if somebody would ask me to ride his/her horse I will do it with pleasure.

Usually I train my horses every day after school with my sister and my father. Currently I’m a student at a secondary school. Next year I’ll have the final exams and I would like to continue my studies at a university.

Besides endurance I enjoy travelling and shopping.
