The 13-year old Danish warmblood gelding May Candeloro, who served on the Danish team at the 2014 and 2015 European Young Riders Championships, has been sold to Swedish young rider Jennifer Lindvall.

Bred by Rita Westerholm and owned by Per Springborn for the last 8 years, May Candeloro is by Michellino x Chrevi's Cavallo. 

Under Kathrine Springborg, the bay gelding made his international show debut at young riders level in May 2014 at the CDIO Saumur. The pair represented Denmark at the 2014 European Young Riders Championships in Arezzo, where they were 17th in the Kur to Music Finals, and at the 2015 European YR Championships in Vidauban, where they were 25th in the individual test.

In 2016 the duo made the transition to Under 25 Grand Prix level. They showed at two CDi's: in Ypaja at the 2016 Nordic Baltic Championships, where they were third in the Kur, and at the 2017 CDI Aalborg in May.

As Kathrine has decided to focus mainly on her studies of political science at the University of Copenhagen while riding some young horses at home, May Candeloro was for sale. The Lindvall family has now acquired the gelding. Jennifer is currently living in Denmark as a working student at Rune Willum and Joachim Thomsen's yard.

Jennifer is currently resident in Denmark, where she works in the dressage stable Willum-Thomsen. Jennifer Lindvall has previously had good results as pony rider and most recently as junior rider, where she finished as second in the Swedish championship. She competed at the 2013 and 2014 European Pony Championships with Hynder Hoeve's Ramses, and at the 2016 European Junior Riders Championships with Jazzmatazz.
