Meet Sabrina Seiwert: fashion aficionado, successful entrepreneur and stylish equestrian
Sabrina was born in Germany and raised in Germany aswell as Spain. Having gone to an international school, she is now fluent in four languages.
After completing her A-Levels she did a Gap Year filled with Internships at LVMH, Louis Vuitton and BRABUS in line with her true love for anything high fashion. Then, during her Business Economics studies, she founded her first business with 3 of her fellow students. Together they organized Europe’s biggest Family Business Convention, which was a huge success and an amazing experience. Being an entrepreneur at heart, after getting her degree in Business Economics, she decided not to accept the job offers already lined up or to go into consulting first, like many of her fellow students, but instead, she had the idea for Saddles & Stories and thought “when if not now?!”.
Sabrina’s love for horses started at a very young age: 5 years old. She was the first in her family who was infected with the infinite horse love virus, and thankfully had very understanding parents that did everything for her to follow her passion for horses. Since she went to an intensive time consuming international school, this meant that the older she got, the more time she had to spend on her studies and less time was left to spend with the horses, competing and her other love: ballet.
Although Sabrina competed in show jumping when she was younger, she definitely feels better in the dressage saddle now. Since starting Saddles & Stories and starting her own business in general is unbelievably time-consuming, she decided to focus her energy on running her business and put a new horse on the agenda for 2019.
“Whenever I do something I tend to do it with all my heart and all the responsibility that comes with it. Because of that it was always out of question for me to get a new horse now and have somebody else care for him/her, 6 days of the week. So, heavy heartedly, having my very own horse again has to wait a little.”
But, Sabrina does not have to go completely without horses in her life, she finds herself very lucky with her best friend having her very own gorgeous stable with fabulous horses. She gets to jump on a horse any time she wants, and even more important, she gets to relax after a busy #girlboss day and spend time with these beautiful animals.
Back to Sabrina’s current business venture: Saddles & Stories. Being a woman, she was especially inspired by her Mom who is a biologist, turned entrepreneur very early and who to Sabrina personifys anything that comes to mind when thinking of a true #girlboss and entrepreneur at heart.
She was familiar with the concept of selling exclusive pre-loved items from her other passion, the fashion industry. Seeing how so many of her friends were struggling to sell their fantastic and mostly very expensive equestrian equipment, the idea for Saddles & Stories was born.
“We equestrians finally needed an adequate market place for our pre-loved & second season treasures. And thats exactly what S&S is, its a market place for exclusive pre-loved equestrian gear for horse and rider.”
