Sabine Bergmann, is an Action Rider who lives in Wedemark in the district of Hanover, in Lower Saxony, Germany. With the extensive selection of quality tack and equipment available in Europe, we were surprised to receive an order for a Myler Snaffle Bit all the way from Germany. Sabine told us that she wanted a bit in 5 ¼ inches, which is the average bit size for horses in Germany. In the U.S., the average bit size is 5 inches.
Sabine Bergmann has four Hanoverians that she rides and competes in the world of show jumping. She bred and raised two of them herself. The first jumper she bred was Chequinello, who is now an eight-year-old gelding. Chequinello is out of a half blood mare and sired by Converter, an Oldenburger County Champion. Converter’s sire, Contender, was a producer of top dressage and jumping horses.
The second foal she bred was out of the same half blood mare, but by a different stallion, Champion FP. Champion FP is a talented jumping stallion who combines the bloodlines of two very successful stallions in Germany, Champion du Lys, a Selle Francais and For Pleasure, a Hanoverian.
She also competes her mare, Agneta, a talented show jumper by Acorado, a Holsteiner jumping and eventing stallion. Agneta is eleven years old and Sabine purchased her six years ago.
As an online company, Action Rider Tack has customers all over the world. The passion for all things equine brings us closer together. The world is still big, but our common ground – our love of horses, makes the world seem smaller.
