With the unique horse Moorland Totilas he enchanted every horse lover. Nowadays he rides many talented horses such as Glock's Undercover. Of course we are talking about none other than Edward Gal. With the 10 horses he rides everyday and the amount of lessons, Edward demands the highest quality and durability of his Petrie boots. “At home I always ride in the cognac coloured Polo boot. They are comfortable and I like the colour. For competitions I wear the Petrie Anky Elegance Dressage boot. This boot has an extra high leg which gives it a really smart look. “After all its not just a matter of comfort, one needs to look good as well” Edward says.

Hans Peter Minderhoud
Hans Peter Minderhoud is a big fan of Petrie Ridingboots. Hans Peter: "I find it very nice that Petrie has more to offer than standard models. I love to ride with boots with a noticable colour and look. For instance, I love de suede colours and Polo model is one of my favourites. At competition I prefer boots with a high top because of my long legs. About the quality I can only be positive. I ride about 10 horses per day so I can safely say that my boots have something to endure." Look for more information on his website www.ghpc.nl

Sharon heeft in haar succesvolle carrière als eventing ruiter meerdere paarden opgeleid. Het beroemdste paard dat ze heeft opgeleid – vanaf zijn vierde jaar - is waarschijnlijk haar eigen Tankers Town op wie ze deelnam aan de Olympische Spelen van 2008 en waarmee ze ook de felbegeerde CCI 4 * in Luhmuhlen (2010) won, zo behaalde ze ook successen met Badminton en Burghley.
Wat misschien een minder bekend feit is, is dat Tankers Town (of Jasper) niet het enige paard is dat door Sharon is opgeleid om te worden geselecteerd voor de Olympische Spelen. Kenny, opgeleid door Sharon, werd geselecteerd voor de Olympische Spelen in Londen in 2012 voor het Braziliaanse team, hoewel hij uiteindelijk helaas niet in staat was om het te halen. Romeo Z, een ander mooi paard opgeleid door Sharon, kreeg een gouden huisje bij een junior ruiter en won vervolgens team goud en vervolgens Young Riders met dezelfde ruiter en nam vervolgens ook team brons mee naar huis.
