In part one of our series “Horse Show Hacks” we gathered some advice on how to get a grey horse or Paint Horse clean and spotless. This time, we have some advice on how to turn everyday items into useful little helpers at the show.
We work. We sweat. We cry. We, fail, one time, another time and still try. We criticise, yet never doubt ourselves, we push forward. We get up early, we ignore our sore legs, we put on a neat shirt and show. We fight against all odds. And we win. We are European Champions, Futurity Champions, National Champions and sometimes the queens and kings of hearts. We are equestrians. We know how to defeat a crisis, even Corona. We know how to push through. We will be back. 🤎
This is not the most professional video as it features many clips that were taken with a phone. But those are your clips and we wanted to share them. Did you spot yourself or your friends?
Those clips that do look professional, however, were taken by Horsepaparazzi. Thank you very much! 🤎
Wir arbeiten hart. Wir schwitzen. Wir weinen. Wir machen Fehler, einmal, zweimal und probieren es doch immer wieder. Wir hinterfragen, aber zweifeln nie. Wir stehen in aller Herrgottsfrühe auf, ignorieren den Muskelkater und ziehen unser Showoutfit an, reiten los und gewinnen. Wir sind Europameister, Futurity Champions, Deutsche Meister und manchmal Sieger der Herzen. Wir als Reiter wissen, wie man mit Krisen umgeht, wie man aus ihnen gestärkt hervorgeht, auch Corona kann uns nichts anhaben. Wir sehen uns wieder. 🤎
Das ist nicht das professionellste Video, da auch viele Handyclips drin sind – aber das sind eure Momente und die wollen wir ja auch zeigen. Habt ihr euch schon entdeckt?
Alles, was aber sehr professionell aussieht, wurde von Horsepaparazzi aufgenommen – vielen Dank, dass wir diese schönen Momente nutzen dürfen!
Horse people do rarely share the same opinion, but there is one thing we can all agree on: One can never have enough horses. That might have been one reason why multiple APHA European Champion Sabrina Hoppert has purchased a new horse. Sabrina is known as the rider of Hes A Hollywood Cody and Hot In My Heart as well as one of the founders of the show clothing brand Mama Mia. She has told us about the newest addition to their family and why they bought a horse in crazy times like these.
Riding is a great sport and has many positive sides to it: victories, going for a trail ride, spending a day at barn with friends. If you’re honest, however, many of us experience a lot of negative moments during our riding career as well – some more, some less. It’s all about how you deal with such experiences. In this article, we tell the story of Lea Peters and her horse Cooldressedinvester aka Jerry. Lea says their story is full of positive and negative “I don’t believe that“-moments.
In our series “Caring for Athletes”, we introduce several forms of therapy that can help our equine partners. This time, we have talked to Claudia Wichtmann who is not only a long-time AQHA competitor, but also a certified APM-therapist. APM stands for Acupuncture Massage according to Penzel. Claudia explains how this can be used for horses.
We continue our series “Introducing Designers” in a – nearly – alphabetical order. Meet Sonja Lam from The Netherlands who runs Bright Star Western Show Boutique:
Celebrating your birthday in times of corona is probably not what most people who were born in April imagined when they thought about their next birthday party – needless to say they are quite unlucky. For one girl, however, this birthday is going to be a very special one, because Zoe Brey is getting a very special birthday present.
This is the next part of our series #stallionsunday in which we introduce several European allround stallions. The one that we wanted to know a little more about this time is a stallion that has been living in Europe for only a few weeks: Chocolate After Dark. Rikke Benjaminsen and Bernhard Schießl who run RB Showhorse purchased the stallion from Max and Mari Guerri. Chocolate After Dark is by Chips Hot Chocolate out of Invite Me After Dark. Rikke shared some more information about this seven-year-old AQHA stallion.
In this article, we have listed all the 2020 foals for sale – if you are interested in having your foal featured, send us an e-mail or message.
One thing is for sure: Showing Paint Horses, grey horses or palominos is great – they usually make you stand out in the crowd. Another thing is for sure as well: Keeping those horses clean can be torture. No, we are not exaggerating in that case. In part one of our series “Horse Show Hacks” we asked competitors who show Paint Horses or grey horses for their advice on how to keep the horses clean and make them shine in the show pen.
