Dressage rider Mikala Münter, who competed for Denmark at the 2014 WEG in Normandy and the European championships in Aachen, has now become a US citizen. She also plans to compete under the US flag, after coming to Florida with her family 15 years ago. 50-year-old Mikala Münter, mother of two, celebrated her greatest successes with the Danish mare My Lady (by Michellino), who was retired from the sport earlier this year to owner Janne Rumbough’s fields. Competing for Denmark, Münter and My Lady helped their team to a qualifying spot for the 2016 Rio Olympics, but did not compete there. They did compete at two world cup finals in Lyon (2014) and Las Vegas (2015). Now Münter has followed in the footsteps of former compatriot Lars Petersen, who became a US citizen in 2016 and now competes for the US.
