She started her career at Nils-Gunnar Hansson as a 14-year-old and, together with "Nisse", built up Askö Stuteri. 

In 2011 Anne-Sophie started up her own company and, until 2017, has run insemination operation at Askö Stuteri.

Now she moves away from home and launches Gocksta Stuteri, hoping it will be a successful business! 

Sandra Persson

Sandra has worked with horses for about 12 years. 

She started working at Askö Stuteri in the summer of 2007, shortly after she graduated. 

In spring 2008 she graduated as a artificial insemination assistent at Flyinge. 

Sandra is responsible, together with Anne-Sophie, for the horses and the stable, as well as collecting the stallions. 

Nils-Gunnar Hansson

"Nisse" is Gocksta's biggest supporter and shares his experiences and comes with new ideas. 

Nils-Gunnar has many years of experience with breeding. In 1982 he started Askö Stuteri, which today is world famous in the equestrian world. 

During his time, Nisse has entered 10 stallions in the performance tests with the help of carefully chosen riders with whom he had good relations.

Now he has chosen to step back and just want to go around to help and visit his nice horses in Europe
