Danish Warmblood Stallion Licensing - The Aftermath

This year was the first time working in Herning for me and I must say: I am more than impressed! Although being a huge event with a tight schedule, the show was incredibly well organized. Being there on behalf of HorseWorldTV I was not there to watch the competitions, but to work with different riders from around the globe and film content that I planned prior to the event for their platform. It was a full success and I am happy that my job allows me to go to the most amazing places in the equestrian world.

My experience in Herning in numbers


  • 60.754 steps, which is round about 41,3 km

  • 6 hot chocolate cups, 1 liter Coke Zero and 5 liters Elderflower Drink (water not counted...)

  • 1 Gala Show (to be fair, only Jesse's and Macho's show, which was INCREDIBLE)

  • 8 delicious meals

  • 14 horizontal and 5 vertical videos filmed

  • 1 gym visit

  • 7 horse noses touched

  • 1 complaint about a rider not riding fair and articulated to the chief steward (of course not one of the riders we filmed with)

  • 6 interesting companies found that would be great to work with in the future

  • 2 times getting water for Macho

  • 4 discussions about the current situation in the sport from different people involved in the show (and they were all really interesting and at eye level)

  • 2 course walks

  • 4 people asked to film with my phone for Instagram Stories while filming with the "big camera" for HWTV

  • 3 ditched ideas

  • 1 time asking a rider for black socks (awkward, but necessary in that moment)

  • 106.341 laughs with the whole HWTV crew

  • 1 elevator (almost) accident, including 1 heroic save by Jesse

 

Regardless of my job situation next year, I will definitely try to be back in Herning for 2025! There is so much to soak in, to see, to learn. I enjoyed it a lot, loved the people who were organizing the whole show and was amazed by how calm everyone was while there was so much happening at the same time.
