Sie ist amtierende FEQHA Europameisterin in Amateur Horsemanship und Ranch Riding, seit Jahren bei der DQHA engagiert und in zahlreichen Disziplinen unterwegs: Mit Lina Paßgang habe ich über ihre Erfolge der Saison 2022 gesprochen, die Vor- und Nachteile eines Leasings und darüber, was sie in der Szene gerne ändern würde.
Since everyone likes the Amateur portraits from the podcast a lot, but some prefer to read rather than listen, here’s our new series: Amateur portraits. We start off with German equestrian Antonia Meyer who told us all about her and her horse Smile Me Seven.
Here, we will post all the 2023 foals that are for sale.
Just like in the years before, we will list everyone who offers banding and braiding at European Western shows in 2022.
Hier listen wir wie jedes Jahr die Leute auf, die Banding und Braiding auf den Westernturnieren in Europa anbieten.
When thinking about world-class riders in the Amateur Western Horsemanship at the moment, she is definitely one of the faces that come to mind immediately: Natalia DeVencenty. In this episode, she told us how she started with Hunter jumpers and how she fell in love with the Quarter Horses. We talked about her current four-legged partner, multiple AQHA World Champion Moonlite Madnez, her successful youth horse Chex Is The Choice, her favorite event Western Horsemanship and what her training looks like. Natalia also shared some Horsemanship advice and gave us an insight on her plans for the 2023 season.
Most people from the European western riding industry dream about it and those who did it usually learn a lot and experience many new and exciting things in the States: Staying with a horse trainer overseas surely is a great experience for any horse enthusiast. Franziska Bebion is currently staying with Robin Frid Show Horses and told us about her time in the States, what it is like at the Congress and the AQHA World Show and she also shared some advice for others who dream of a similar experience.
Recently, I stumbled across a post from AQHA that I thought about a lot – it was not the first time, those thoughts occurred, but this time I decided to write about it. The post quoted a young female breakaway roper who said: „Always work hard and never underestimate yourself and your purpose in the Western industry“. To me, this totally hit home, especially the latter part.
As 2022 is coming to an end, we’d like to take some time to look at an eventful year: It was full of emotions, great moments and – of course – horses. But it has not only been an exciting year for the TSL team but for the community as well. We asked for your favorite moments in 2022 – and those are some of the answers.
Das Jahr neigt sich dem Ende zu, die Turniersaison ist bereits vorbei: Sophie Schonauer und ich blicken auf unsere Saison, die Erfolge und Herausforderungen. Was waren die Highlights, was wollen wir vielleicht künftig anders machen? Wir sprechen außerdem über unsere Pläne für 2023 und beantworten Fragen aus der Community.
If you can dream it, you can do it – that could be the motto behind Federica Sammarco’s story in the Western riding industry. The Italian native told us about her first steps in the world of horses, her current four-legged partner Tyson Moving and a very special Trail high score.
