Meet Scarlett Wyrobnik: Dressage rider, equestrian lifestyle ambassador and stylish equestrian.
Scarlett has been riding since she was six years old. She started riding together with her older sister Jillian during the holidays and their parents, who were wonderfully obsessed with horses as too, were very supportive of the girls’ passion.
When she was 12 years old, Scarlett got her first very own horse Mistral. She did however have to share it with her sister.
They both learned a lot on Mistral and they were successful up to level M in dressage and showjumping with him.
Soon Scarlett had the chance to start working with young budding horses, and she decided to follow her passion and focus on dressage riding. With one of her favorite horses Rubina (lovingly called Kitty around the barn), she learned everything up to level S. She got Kitty when the mare was five and now she is now 16 years old.
Unfortunately, Kitty is suffering from laminitis and is not able to be ridden anymore, but she is enjoying her early retirement with Scarlett, always remaining her better half.
Sansibar joined Scarlett in November 2015 and is following in Kitty’s footsteps.
She trains this talented horse patiently, with love and harmony to hopefully have their first competition in a level L dressage test soon.
She wishes for the both of them that Sansibar stays healthy so she can continue with him where she had to stop with Kitty.
Scarlett and Sansibar are dreaming of someday riding their first Grand Prix together! Who knows, according to Scarlett everything is possible with the right amount of discipline.
Scarlett’s role models in equitation are Hannelore Brenner, who is a paraequestrian for Germany and Uta Gräf. The fascinating part about Brenner is how she handles her handicap, trains her horses and offers them a great life.
She loves Gräfs joyful spirit, which she transfers to her students. Scarlett finds herself very lucky to have experienced Uta Gräfs inspirational style when she participated in a few of her training courses.
Interesting facts about Scarlett are that she could watch her horses eating hay for hours. For her it’s better than watching TV 😉
Furthermore, she loves rides outside with her horses and her dog Zoé. Also, she takes great care of her equipment and a weekly cleanse is a must for her.
Scarlett’s favorite colors are muted tones like brown, black, grey and blue and loves it when everything matches. Every once in a while she’ll like to add a pop of bright red or blue to her look and match patterns to her horses’ gear.
We’ve put a look together today for Scarlett that incorporates not only her favourite hues, but also some of her all time favourite brands. She loves wearing Pikeur breeches and we went for the new Clarissa grip in navy blue. As a lover of matching outfits, we combined the breeches with a navy blue Mountain Horse long sleeve Alyssa polo and a navy blue HV Polo must have ‘Cheval’ vest (… a vest is really a must have versatile item for Scarlett). For an extra layer of comfort and style, we’ve added a grey Naketano zip hoodie, which is one of Scarlett’s favourite brands as well.
You’ll see Scarlett in a few different types of Samshield helmets and for this look we chose the classic Shadowmat navy blue one and added a Kingsland Delano navy blue baseball cap for after her ride. Playing on the blue and grey colorscheme we added a pair of Uvex sportstyle gloves and a true ‘equinelife’ necessity: a Horze grooming bag.
We finished off the look with a pair of Königs lace-up polo caramel colored boots and matched them to a Liebeskind Berlin braided belt.
