Shared values and shared ideas

Our Ambassadors

With great pride we present our current ambassadors. We all share the fascination for horses and the constant pursuit of progress. They are not only our figureheads, but also our strictest critics and best product testers.

Nicola Pohl

As our first Jumping Rider Nicola joined our team of Ambassadors in the end of 2019. The 23 years old German rider is based on her own facility in Dagobertshausen, where she among others has her top horses Walona, Copain and Excelero stabled. Together with her trainers Cian O’Connor and Michael Kelly Nicola has built up a professional set-up, which has resulted in many successful rounds in both the U25 tour such as ranking classes. 2017 was an extraordinary year as she won the division of the German “U25-Springpokal” in Wiesbaden and was honored with the Golden Riding Badge by the end of the year in Frankfurt. 

Next to her successful pedigree Nicola distinguishes through her fair and tender treatment of her horses. This combination of characteristics was decisory for receiving the PSI-Award “Youth Rider of the Year” in 2015.

Kathleen Keller

"If I were to be described in one word, then I am absolutely horse-crazy" – that’s how Kathleen Keller talks about herself in an interview with the Deutsche Bank Riding-Academy. She’s a chip off the old block: growing up on the Klosterhof Medingen, she was born into riding.

From the pony-age on, her parents, Dolf-Dietram and Manuela Keller, coached her successfully through her dressage career. And even if she has broken away from her parents' business by now, she still attaches great importance to regular training and the good advice of her parents. With her self-employment, she has now built up her pillar on the Hof Etzer Heide in Appen. Through many successes, such as the victory in the Kur in Hamburg and Oldenburg, she took her place in the German B-squad with her successful horse San Royal.

Hannah Erbe

Despite her young age, Hannah Erbe already has an impressive success pedigree. She won her first European title in the Juniors at the age of 16, under the guidance of her longtime trainer Heiner Schiergen and repeated the success the following year. In 2017, she relegated her much older competitors in the age group of the Young Riders to the rear of the field and took the 3-time European title under the Spanish sun.

Two years ago, she moved into the stable of Isabell Werth and was able to learn first hand from the "Queen of Dressage". Recently she has been training and working under the supervision of Johann Hinnemann. At the age of 20, she and her loyal companion, Carlos, already compete successfully in the U25 Tour and just recently won the qualification for the "Piaff-Förderpreis" in Verden. In addition, she studies real estate management and is supported by the German Equestrian Academy.

Borja Carrascosa

Borja Carrascosa probably carried the sun with him when he left his Spanish homeland to take his job as a rider at the Kasselmann farm. The collaboration proved to be extremely successful and resulted, among other things, in the participation in the World Equestrian Games in Caen 2014. In Germany, he however found not only a good employer but also his life- and business partner, Alexander Brennikmeijer. In 2015, they ventured into self-employment together and moved into the boxes of the picturesque Gut Auric in Krefeld.

In addition to many successful young horses, Borja Carrascosa especially attracts attention with his Top-Horse “Ein Traum”. With the 10-year-old Estobar-gelding they were part of the Spanish team at this year's European Championships in Rotterdam after a successful tournament season. We are proud to support a literal dream-couple!

Sandra Kristoffersen

Growing up in the show jumping stable of her father Bo Kristoffersen, Sandra Kristoffersen became enthusiastic about the other sector of equestrian sport and, as a member of the National Team from Pony to Young Riders, has successfully participated in Nations Cups and Championships for her home country Denmark. With her mare Baunehojens Florida, she was internationally victorious on the Young Rider Tour this year.

After completing her last Young Rider year, she now devotes herself to the training of young horses and hopes to one day be able to acquire the "ticket for the big sport" herself. Even though her heart is still beating for the equestrian sport, she is currently studying marketing management in Hamburg and is part of Anna Klose's team.
