Antelope Showjumpers is a collaboration between Raena Leung and Mike Patrick Leichle to form a channel of coaching and management programs to riders who want to venture into the European circuit. The base is at Stall Leichle in Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany.
We coach and teach prospective competitors to their highest potential and help develop their skills and confidence required to be competitive at the top international levels. We also utilize our hands-on experience to identify and develop prospective show jumpers to their full capacity for owners and clients either in competition or for dealing.
With our strong backgrounds on the Eastern and Western fronts and multilingual abilities - our mission is to create equestrian opportunities for aspiring asian riders to train and develop in the discipline of showjumping.
Raena Leung is a seasoned international competitor, and part of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Equestrian Team since 2013. Raena has been actively competing on the European circuit and the China circuit full time since 2011 upon attaining a Master's Degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology. Her education and international show jumping experience gives her a wealth of knowledge and the ability to guide juniors and amateurs to a high level of global competition.
