Carmen Thiemann

Carmen is the very soul of the stable. She has a unique gift of communicating with horses and understanding their needs so that she is able to provide ideal care for each horse. No-one knows horses better than she! Carmen has full responsibility for the management of the stable and because of her great competence I am able to focus on my work with the horses in peace. She is always positive, has excellent organizational skills and even in difficult, pressure-filled situations her calm reliability and gift with both people and horses makes her irreplaceable for me and for the other members of the team. In 2013 Carmen has won the “Best Groom” title at the FEI Awards and 2020 “Best groom of the decade”! No one has earned this more than Carmen!

Lea Aldenhoven

Lea is in the first year of her apprenticeship, with the focus on riding. Prior to this she spent time with us as a working student, quickly fitting well into our team. She is open, friendly and always happy. Lea is able to ride various types of horses with ease and has proven she has a secure seat a number of times already.

She has brought her own young eventing horse with her, training with me during her time here.

Lea also assists with our “Open Training”

Carolin Schuster

Carolin spent time with us as a working student and it was quickly clear that we wanted her as a part of our team, completing her traineeship with us. She fits in so well with her helpful and friendly manner, as does her gorgeous little toy poodle, Wilma.

Carolin has competed successfully up to advanced level dressage (M**) and 1.15 m (L level) show jumping.

She already has her A level Trainers certificate and lots of experience teaching.

Caroline rides well, with a secure seat and is brave and safe in the cross country.

Anne Barbrock

Anne and I have been friends for years. Now she is an integral part of our team. We benefit from her professional experience in Marketing, Project Management and Sales. Her enthusiasm also brings new creative energy into our team.

Kerstin Reiß

Kerstin is my assistant and organizes my office. Many topics that involve my diverse tasks and challenges are in her hands. She takes care of the organization of tournament starts and personnel matters, looks after the homepage, interview requests, as well as many other organizational issues. She also helps me with my finances. Among other things, she deals with the financial accounting and controlling. Furthermore, she brings her experience into our team.

The property of Schulze Bruening

is perfect for my horses. Here we enjoy large, bright box stalls on the floor of an old threshing barn, a large arena, beautiful grounds, great hacking and meadows for turnout. We have ideal conditions for keeping horses so they feel well and this is the basis from which we can carry out good training.
