She has worked in her field for many years, leading rides in different countries. She tells us what she loves about her profession and why she has never regretted her decision. Ute has also led groups on horseback before, both of them chat about their experiences and discover they have a lot in common.

Working with Horses

Talking with different equestrian professionals

Who has not dreamed about working with horses as a girl? For many this dream has not come true but for others it has. Working with horses means a lot of hard work and dedication, early mornings and being outside most of the time. But it also means to be part of the equestrian tribe and doing what you love.
