Sven was born with a talent for riding. His mother Veronika Schlüsselburg won international tournaments and championships. His father Manfred Schlüsselburg was, like Sven, a Nations Cup rider and is in high demand as a coach. His mother has a fine hand as a breeder and has already bred many successful foals.

Sven’s great success does not come by itself. Currently, he is training with Lars Meyer zu Bexten and is also supervised and supported by him in his international competitions.
