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?
Unsere zweite Podcast-Episode ist draußen! Dieses Mal auf deutsch und mit Claudia Wichtmann von CC Showhorses. Wir sprechen über die schönen Momente der Allroundzucht, aber auch über Schattenseiten, über den “Aachen-Blues” und wie Vermarktung vor Facebook und Instagram funktioniert hat.
Starting a youngster, introducing a young horse to the show circuit, that is an exciting process – one that comes with many decisions. Owner and trainer have to decide which association and which futurity program they want to show the horse in. We have talked to Linda Leckebuch-Stark and Carolin Lenz about that decision and looked at two of the largest programs in Europe.
You are new to the show industry and totally confused by everything that’s going on? You have been showing for a while but still don’t get the new scoring system? You are a DIY-rider without a trainer to ask some questions? We are here to help! Together with five DQHA Professional Horsewomen who are also judges, we have created this unique opportunity for you: Ask the judge!
Here, we feature all European horse shows that do take place despite the Corona situation. Please note that we have highlighted the locations the shows take place – if you click on the symbol, you will find more information about the shows that are about to take place there. One symbol can stand for multiple shows.
In this part of our series, “How to…”, are covering a fun class that is not nearly as popular in Europe as it should be: Hunter Hack. We have talked to two individuals that have loved this class for a long time: professional horsewoman and multiple AQHA World Champion Lainie DeBoer and multiple Int. DQHA Champion Christina Münster. They shared their observations and advice from an American and European point of view.
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!
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.
Sofie Gawinski Lindholm is 22 years old and the president of the DKQHA, the AQHA affiliate in Denmark. She is – as far as we know – the youngest president of an AQHA affiliate. In our interview, she told us, how she got the position, what her goals are and how she was perceived because of her age.
