YNGVAR OLSEN

A LIFE WITH HORSES

«All my life I have worked with horses. I started early as the stable boy, but eventually I became trainer and driver and drove many races at Bjerke . I also participated in several races in Sweden and Denmark. I worked at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute until I was 70 years old.»
