In our series “New Faces”, we introduce people that are new to the Western Riding industry in Europe – whether they show on the AQHA, APHA, ApHC, VWB or EWU circuit or any other association. This time, we’d like to introduce Luca Kemper, an AQHA Youth competitor. We talked to her about the first steps in our industry, her horse and her plans.
A list of people who offer banding and braiding and the shows they will attend.
Ugh, the pandemic has been hard, right? If you feel like there’s hardly a light at the end of this “lockdown tunnel”, here are some strategies that might help you finding your motivation to practice – even if there’s no show season around the corner. (Good news is: It looks like there is…)

If there’s one thing that makes a cowboy or -girl stand our from other equestrians it’s… the hat! Over the years, however, the once functional piece of clothing has turned into a fashion statement, especially at horse shows. And as with most things in the industry, trends are coming and going. We talked to Mel Loebel of Ekedie Showclothing and Kendra Köhnen of Kendra’s about taking care of a hat, the process of hat making and current trends.
AQHA and AQHA, their similarities and differences — those are the topics of our latest podcast episode. Former APHA exhibitor and #1 in the world ranking SPB Youth Laura Pfeifer shared her insights from transferring from the APHA to the AQHA circuit. But other than that, this episode contains a lot of nostalgia, fun stories and memories as well as the answer to the question: What would you tell your teenage self?
Yes, showing is fun – but have you ever dreamed of going on an adventure with your horse? Susanne Maeder from Switzerland is doing that on a regular basis. She explores the Alps with her Quarter Horse.
