Anne was born on 25 March 1962 in Alborg, Denmark.
At a young age she was active in show jumping.
A few years later, it changed because she was completely focused on dressage. Her first participation in the Grand Prix began in 1988 with her then-horse Le Fiere.
Since 1988, for 16 times now she has been the member of the Danish team and has ridden at 5 Olympics.
Married to Gertjan van Olst they both run Van Olst Horses.
Anne is fully in charge of the dressage stables.
She trains her own show horses, manages our riders and horses, teaching riders to Grand Prix level, and takes horses in for training, competing or selling.
