Inside Wetzlgut special edition for bloggers & friends

The last editon of Inside Wetzlgut was a very special one. Due to the huge response to this format I decided to dedicate one day especially to my blogger friends.

As a very special surprise PS of Sweden personally came (say Jennifer Nyman, the brand’s Marketing PR and social media representative) to bring gifts, talk about upcoming collections and answer all questions. I am still so humbled and honored about this appearance to underline the very special relationship and cooperation I have with PS of Sweden since now almost 3 years.

But it seemed to be the day of special surprises, as the girls of Dressageteam KK, Lena and Antonia, not only came to attend but also made a beautiful video of the:

Happy New Year 2019

 

 

Happy New Year to all of you!

First of all I want to wish you a very happy, successful 2019 full of joy, luck and health for you and all your four-legged friends.

Lately I totally neglected this website as I was feverishly working on a new project which I hoped I could launch end of 2018. But as I am the perfectionist you all know, I was not satisfied with the outcome so it unfortunately will take a little longer than expected.

Anyways I will try to keep this website updated as good as possible. In any case you will be totally up to date if you follow my Instagram @nicolabaurdressage and perhaps this site will give just a little extra insight to my daily life and routines at Stall Wetzlgut.

I have updated the horses section, especially the ones new to this website Upsi, Didi and Floris.

And what’s happening next:

On three weekends in January I am very happy to welcome a tiny group of Instagramers to spend a day with me at the stables, see our daily training as well as grooming, feeding, etc routine and ask as many questions as they can think of. This was this years xmas present to my followers… but to everyone who will not be there: please do not be sad, there is much more planned for this year so just stay tuned & you will see 😉

Beginning of February I will have my first competition. It will be the preparation for the international qualifiers beginning of March and I am rather excited. Upsi will compete for sure, but we will still see about all the others -will keep you posted on this too 😉

xoxo Nicola

 

UHIP Photoshoot

8F46F6D3-006B-45EC-94F7-A6472CA77778

You all know that I love the Swedish functional wear brand uhip, so I felt very honoured when they asked me if I could model for the campaign of their newest project.

Uhip is expanding to Russia and will open on November 26 a showroom in one of Moscow’s most exclusive equestrian facilities.

The aim of the photoshoot was to capture some winter vibes, so our place was just perfect. Even more so when it started to snow… The locations were my stables and also one of the most beautiful places in Bad Gastein, called Sportgastein. It is a plateau 2.000m above sea level and a national park and I love it so much as in my world it looks like the Scottish Highlands -especially in late autumn.

It indeed was freezing cold and I was so grateful for all the winter jackets and coats *lol but I really love what Max Steinbauer (the photographer) created on this day.

I have for you some exclusive (not yet published) campaign pics, but also lots of making of and behind the scenes and I hope you like them as much as I do…

For even more pics please look at uhip.se and on the Instagram accounts

Denim -finally

81B5CCBD-925A-4BE9-BA2A-DC6B09AE2320

I love fashion but I confess that I am rather picky. My fashion must be chic, sleek, cool, definitely 99% free of bling and if possible not totally mainstream. When it comes to riding fashion this is something not so easily found especially if you add attributes like functional, durable, washable, etc.

As I love denim I thought it would be so cool to have denim breeches, jackets or even shirts for riding but although there are several companies on the market producing denim riding wear I did not manage to find the ‘ultimate’ denim piece.

Then one day somehow this small Hamburg based label popped up and I immediately loved the vibes the website spread and this is how my lovestory with Kudamono started ❤

Kudamono, was founded 2 years ago by Nele Obst (Obst means ‘fruit’ in German and Kudamono means ‘fruit’ in Japanese -just to explain the unusual name…) who, herself a rider and having worked for fashion label Marc O’Polo, was searching for a sleek approach to equestrian fashion. Since then her aim is to produce sustainable fashion that is functional enough so that you can use it as a professional who rides way more than 1 or 2 horses a day and sleek enough to be worn also outside the stables.

In my opinion this mission was accomplished. I tested myself now for a few weeks the Kudamono breeches, shirt and jacket and not only that I absolutely love the look and fit, I wore them almost daily, washed the pieces several times and as I am always short in time threw them to the dry tumbler (luckily mine has a special denim program) and everything stayed in perfect shape.

What I love most, is that the Kudamono garments are cut very thoughtfully with many clever details, for example the jacket’s front zipper is a bit shorter in order not to scratch the saddle. The materials are (in my opinion) unique: comfortable, smooth and stretchy like the denim shirt, that indeed feels like a jersey one.

So I am sure you will see Kudamono on me quite a lot as I am so happy to finally have found my denim love ❤
