Arriving at a Disneyland full of horses

Winter Equestrian Festival

Three exciting weeks have come to an end in Wellington, just in time before the current corona virus started causing its chaos. For the very first time the brand had its show-off at a competition and Wellington seemed like the perfect spot to make loads of contacts and target new customers.

Wellington is said to be the Disneyland of the equestrian world and it is indeed difficult not to get impressed by the wonderful farms surrounding the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, where chandeliers cover the ceilings and golden elements decorate the stalls. Thereby we are very thankful for being able to visit several estates such as Helgstrand Dressage, Stillpoint Farm, Bell Tower Farm, Aasa Björklund and Marco Bernal.

Besides our vendor booth at the Winter Equestrian Festival we had Petra Hofmann helping us to organize a very nice Trunk Show within the Polo Club. We are already looking forward to our next journey!

Prepared for sunny days in Wellington

Springcollection 2020 out now!

Spring hasn’t arrived yet in Hamburg, but as we will head towards the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington in only three weeks, we have already showcased our upcoming collection! Once again, the team has succesfully collaborated creating two wonderful sets of manufacturing quality for this year’s spring. While some materials appear back in our Exclusive Line, such as our multifunctional Tech-Suede, the extension of the Passion Line offers entirely new cuts and materials, such as the dreamy Cashmerefleece. The spring collection also features a new line of bags and the classic All-In-Bags are challenged by our playful backpacks. Get ready for spring, it’s just around the corner!

Valentines gift needed? 

The perfect present!

An annually reoccurring dilemma is right around the corner: How to find the perfect gift for your beloved wife or girlfriend? Especially when last year’s gift was a box of chocolates and a bouquet of flowers from the nearest gas station, it might be time for a more pleasant surprise. 

So here we are to solve your problems, as we just launched both our Heartpendant such as our Anna Klose Love Print Shirts. The handmade pendant of manufacturing quality is not only the perfect gift for riders and equestrians but also for stylists and fashionistas. Of course the pendant can be personalized with a small message or name as well.

In the spotlight

Press attention for San Royal's wedding outfit

Whenever brand ambassador Kathleen Keller married her partner Nikolas Kröncke in the beginning of the months, not only the bride"s stunning dress caught attention, but also the matching wedding outfit of her top horse San Royal. The wonderful wedding picture of the entire "family" - Kathleen, Nikolas, her top horse San Royal and her two sausage dogs Schoko and Lily - has been printed in the two German equestrian magazines ReiterRevue (l.) and St. Georg (r.) and was also shown online at Eurodressage (m.) and the Danish platform Ridehesten.

Unique masterpieces from Anna Klose!

Wonderful wedding visions.

Our ambassador Kathleen Keller married her "love of her life" Nikolas Kröncke - and her top horse Sun Royal was (almost) as beautiful as the bride. As a special wedding gift we had created a unique wedding blanket matching the beautiful dress of Kathleen with the same laces from Gahlia Lahav. The collier was imprinted with the modified logo in the sign of love and even Kathleen's wore their own ANNAtomic Suits. We felt very honored to take part in this wonderful day!

Innovation on paper!

The ANNAtomic Suit registered for patent approval

Now it is finally official. The ANNAtomic Suit, that was created by Anna Klose, is registered for patent approval. From the first draft it took us over 2 years to develop this unique blanket as a marketable product. Due to the innovative sewing pattern the blanket follows the anatomic shape of the horse's back. Thereby the shoulders of the horse can move freely and the back is perfectly protected from wind and drizzle.

Another highlight: personalize your blanket as you want!

Due to the additional seam at the withers we were able to implement at the Personal Tag at the left side of the blanket - for you to attach all kind of different tassels and pendants. Just have a look at our items in the shop and order your ANNAtomic Suit now!

Chiemsee Pferdefestival 2019

What a beautiful day!

The start of Anna Klose at the Chiemsee Horse Festival 2019 was a complete success. Dressage riders at their best and a fantastic backdrop made the Anna Klose Grand Prix Freestyle one of the highlights at Gut Ising.

Monica Theodorescu herself expertly commented on each ride. In the end riding professional Uwe Schwanz was the winner on his top horse Hermes with 78.025 %. With a smile, Isabell Werth commented: "Uwe is knocking us all out here." What a wonderful compliment from the dressage queen. At the award ceremony, our RugStar, the winner's blanket finished with 10,000 Swarovski crystals, sparked the arena. Our special thanks go to organizer Petra Hofmann and the owners of this great facility Sylvie and Dietmar Gugler. Her personal support made the start of Anna Klose at the Chiemsee Festival an unforgettable experience. For more impressions have a look at our Instagram page @Annaklose_Hamburg.

What a beautiful day – definitely one to remember!

It's On!

As part of the Chiemsee Pferdefestival 2019, our online shop is now on air! As a highlight of the weekend we present the winner of the Anna Klose Grand Prix Freestyle with the winner's blanket from our manufactory. Finished with over 10,000 Swarovski Crystals, our RugStar is in the spotlight on Saturday night – or more precisely in the floodlight?

We have big plans for our first official appearance. On the occasion of the floodlight-kur, we embroidered our RugStar with 10,000 Swarovski Crystals to give the winner a sensational entrance. All classes can be followed live on ClipMyHorse. Our products can now be explored on our homepage and purchased in the shop.

Fabulous end of the season

Championship weekend for AK Ambassadors Borja Carrascosa and Sandra Kristoffersen

With the European Championships in Rotterdam and the Danish Youth Championships in the vicinity of Copenhagen, it was double fingers crossed for the AK team.

For Borja Carrascosa and the 10-year-old gelding "Ein Traum" the season's highlight of the year was on. After great results in the spring – i.a. the victory of the CDI5 * kur in Doha at the beginning of the year – the couple was nominated for the European Championships in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

After a great round with only minor discrepancies in the Grand Prix which was rewarded with 69.07%, the Spanish team finished in sixth place in the team ranking. Unfortunately, it was not enough to qualify for the Grand Prix Special in the individual competition. Nevertheless, Borja is happy about a successful championship debut for "Ein Traum". Also trainer and owner Petra Hoffmann looks forward to the coming season, in which Borja and Ein Traum have their eyes firmly on the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Sandra Kristoffersen also has an exciting weekend behind her. After the Scandinavian Championships last July, when she won the gold medal with the Danish team, she returned to the Danish championships with her mare Baunehøjens Florida to compete in the age group of the young riders.

After a successful kick-off in the Prix St. Georges to 69.05%, she made some annoying mistakes in the 2nd special stage. Nevertheless, she reported a great feeling in the kur-final, which was rewarded with 72.4%. This was enough to get back into the top 10 in the overall standings and Sandra finished the championship in 9th place.

All in the can!

Great shooting days in August

For the pictures on the homepage we needed a total of 4 exciting shootings together with our ambassadors Kathleen Keller, Hannah Erbe, Borja Carrascosa and Sandra Kristoffersen.

With passionate support from the photographer Mike Christian we had a successfull shoot at the plant of Isabell Werth in Rheinberg and on the Hof Etzer Heide in Appen. You've probably already seen the result – whether on the homepage, on our Instagram or on ClipMyHorse.
