Married to: Dressage rider Emily Ward

Sune began riding at Odense Pony Riding School when he was 6 years old. Here he got to know Klaus Munkedal and later rode for Munkedal in Glamsbjerg while he went to school.
In 1993, Klaus urged Sune to go to Germany to develop his talent.

Sune went to Palle Thomsen and Allan Gaihede in Augsburg, southern Germany. Here he started with the first part of the German ‘bereiter’ education. After the first three years of his ‘bereiter’ education, he went with Palle to the sales stable of Alexander Moksel in Buchloe. Here he completed the final part of his exam to become ‘Pferdewirtschaftsmeister’.
After this he went to Gestüt Nymphenburg, where he helped to find and train dressage horses for the owner's daughter. After a two year collaboration with Gestüt Nymphenburg he moved to Weert, Holland in 2008. Here he and Emily rented a stable at stallion station De Ijzerenman, where they ran their own sales and competition stable.
In 2009 after 15 years in Germany and Holland, he returned to Denmark and became the head rider at Blue Hors.
