Life With A Friesian Dream

Winter happiness and Friesian power

In collaboration with Horze

Finally we got some real snow! I have waited not so patiently since November, and when the winter wonderland suddenly appeared outside my window, the first thing I did was to head to Batman. Playing with the horse in the snow is literally the best thing ever. And Batman did not hesitate and gladly joined me in the field for some winter fun!

Today was also the perfect day to show you my new breeches and sweater from Horze. I finally ordered the Desiree-breeches, which you have probably seen on my blog before in a wish list or ten! My last pair of quality breeches from Horze got eaten by my rabbit last winter(!), and I have worn jeans in the stable ever since! I never wear them out, my rabbit eats them. True story. #lifewithrabbit

What I look for when I shop breeches:
– Pockets large enough to fit an iPhone or 4 carrots, also when you sit on the horse
– High quality fabric, a flexible feel and elegant details
– A good fit around the ankle
– Must be super comfortable during riding, walking, running and when sitting in a car

It felt amazing to finally ride in the Crescendo Desiree-breeches, and what I love most about them is the high waist and lovely details. I can’t stand riding, or walking, in breeches you can’t feel comfy moving around in. When I’m in the stable, I’m running, jumping, climbing and even crawling on the ground. I need a pair of breeches you never need to adjust. What. So. Ever.

So with a high waist, perfect fit, stretchy fabric and decorative silicone knee patch, the Desiree-breeches is by far the most beautiful and the most comfortable pair of breeches I have ever worn. I could easily wear them outside the stable because of the stylish look.

My lovely new sweater is the warm and comfy Reykur Fleece, also from Horze. I have many old fleece sweaters in XXL, looking more like a tent really, and wanted something a bit more feminine and practical to wear while riding. The Reykur fleece looks great on, it’s got large pockets with space for iPhones and carrots, and during the session with Batman in the field, I did actually not freeze!

Enough outfit-talk, enjoy the sight of my incredible, playful, proud and gorgeous Batman!

A huge thanks to Stina for today’s amazing photos, I’m forever grateful.

Peace, love and Friesian hugs,
Batman & Matilde

Aim for your goals


I’m having a little bit of stage fright right now, because today, my blog had 80 000 page views from all over the planet. THAT’S INSANE! I’m still in shock! I don’t know what to say – thank you so much for the support in a very important debate!

The sun suddenly appeared again a few weeks ago, so we decided to have a little archery-photoshoot! Batman is the most chill horse ever, and he LOVES my bow. In his opinion arrows are food, and archery is the best thing in the world. He will stay by my side and basically shoot together with me, haha. I guess he finds it fascinating! When I’m shooting from his back, he also knows when I hit the target, and when he can feel me aim, he will run smooth and stable.

It took me 1 minute to introduce him to archery :D Strong bow with sharp arrows + 700 kg war horse … DON’T MESS WITH US!

My henley is of course from  Alp-n-Rock /, my awesome sponsor who helps me making my dreams possible. I’m an proud ambassador for this brand, and recommend their clothing with all my heart! I have never worn so comfortable and stylish looking henleys before in my life, and I have a whole bunch of them! ❤ You will get 20% off their webstore by using the code INSTA20MATILDE :)

Live to Ride


I LOVE all my Alp-n-Rock henleys! My number one favorite to ride in. My skin is really sensitive and I hate getting sweaty while riding and my clothes start to itch like hell. Worst feeling ever during a perfect dressage session! But that never happens with my beloved Alp-n-Rock henleys. They keep me warm and the fabric is both super-soft and comfortable, and stretchy – allowing you to move freely in your upper body when riding or working from the ground. I feel both comfy and feminine with these clothes. Perfect, huh?
