Alice Faggin


Alice Faggin, Italy, Owner and manager of the saddlery Selleria Faggin

"I would describe myself as someone who is always trying to improve and challange myself, curious and positive, I love to work in team"

What makes innovations special for you?
"For me, innovations are significant when they find the right balance between technological advancement and the well-being of the horse and rider, always paying attention to environmental and social sustainability"

Nils Dehner


Nils Dehner, Germany, Managing Director, Pferdesporthaus Loesdau GmbH & Co. KG

"From the time I was a child, I have been privately committed to equestrian sports and have also contributed my love and passion for horses in a professional way for many years at the Loesdau equestrian sports house."

What makes innovations special for you?
"An innovation doesn't always have to be something groundbreaking; proverbially, you can't or don't always have to reinvent the wheel. Rather, it is often the small and simple (usually technical) optimizations that provide a great benefit (for humans and animals) in everyday life and are thus special as innovations."

Lisa Röckener


Lisa Röckener, Germany, Influencer, teacher, instructor in equestrian sports

"I get to combine my hobby with my work and take many people with me every day through everyday life and into training horses. I rode in the junior time in the perspective squad eventing and started after a fall to take horsemanship with in the daily work. Now I combine competition sport with free work, have written two books about it, get to present my work at various galas and shows and now also show our work in front of the TV camera."

What makes innovations special for you?
"Without innovation, we would be standing still. It's important to embrace new things, think outside the box and give new developments a chance."

Harrison Ashton

He frequently travels to equestrian shows and events both in the UK, Europe and internationally, growing his network, creating content and expanding his knowledge of the sport.

Danielle Goldstein Waldman


Danielle Goldstein Waldman, Israel/United States, Former Olympian, Entrepreneur

"After a 30 year career as a professional show jumper, I recently retired from top sport to focus on mentorship for young professionals"

What makes innovations special for you?
"I’m always someone who likes to push boundaries and cultivate originality—innovations encapsulate that ideal perfectly!"

Wilken Treu


Wilken Treu, Germany, Managing Director Hannoveraner Association

"40 years, enthusiastic about horses, sports and breeding. Riding focus on dressage - currently, however, because of my two children increasingly on the road in Führzügelklassen. I like to look at a lot of horses and am happy when their potential is correctly assessed."

What makes innovations special for you?
"The will to change processes and techniques, to improve, to simplify. The equestrian scene can still use many innovations to be interesting for the young generation. It is interesting when as many horse people of all ages as possible can benefit."
