2020 – it’s probably not the year most of us have many fond memories of. For the sister duo Sandra Rüd and Christine Baier, however, the year had another bad surprise in store – besides the whole pandemic stuff. But – we can tell you this much – their story has a happy ending.
Being a horse trainer is risky business. It is not a job that is well integrated and supported in the systems of our European States. It is a job you can easily lose – especially in times of a pandemic. Laura Weber has not only founded her own business last year – Laura Weber Western Performers – but has recently started to go to university as well. We have talked to the 21-year-old about why she did that, what she thinks about having a certain kind of training as a horse trainer and her goals.
Congratulations are in order for Alena Helmcke and Shes Doolins Nikita: The 2001 black tobiano mare is the first European horse to be induced into the APHA Hall of Fame. It is the climax of a great story of success given that “Niki” has won 32 medals at the Euro Paint during her career, making a total of 1053 APHA points. However, it is also a sad story, because in 2013 Niki passed away.
We have all known for a long time that our sport is the sport, that it is totally en vogue. Recently, however, it has gained some new fans: Austrian influencer Tanja Trutschnig and German podcaster Ariana Baborie both wanted to try western riding and who did they visit in order to do so? None other than Berlin Brandenburg Quarter Horses, not only known for their successful show horses but also their stallion Disavowed. Tanja Trutschnig is one of the creators at Blogger Bazaar, a blog that has 150 k followers on Instagram and is one of the most well-known German fashion blogs. Ariana Baborie runs the successful German podcast „Herrengedeck“, together with her friend Laura. They have recently won a big German Comedy Award and Ariana is also nominated for the People’s Choice Award. We have talked to Leonie Fischer of BBQH about the fact that two well-known German influencers visited BBQH in such a short time.
“Queen of the show” – if anyone can be called that, it’s Lea Henzgen. She has had an unbelievably successful Bavarian Championship, taking home three Golden Series titles with her mare Under The Influence: in Western Horsemanship, Trail and Showmanship.
“Pics or it didn’t happen” – no one takes this saying as serious as the horse show industry. Whether it is a video of practice, a picture of the new boots or an article about blankets – we like, comment and share a lot. This has lead to the fact that social media has become an important marketing tool for trainers. We have talked to three young ladies about how they use social media for advertising and getting in contact with clients.
