Cross training - "Fun lesson"

Today we rode what we call, a "fun lesson". Mette is a strong believer in cross training, both when it comes to the horse and the rider. Living in LA, where we don't have the forest or big fields, you have to be creative and come up with fun, positive variations of your work out. This is one way to do it!

A Goode Rider


We all know that Mette is a good rider! But she is also a Goode Rider! The picture was taken at the last show in Del Mar where Mette won the GP Special and was 3rd in the GP with her horse Marron. Her assistant trainer Anna also showed her horse Lourdes in the open PSG and the pair finished 2nd and 3rd with 72% both days! Way to go Team Mette!

Mette is posing with her new banner and one of her many nice jackets from the new Goode Rider fall collection. Visit the website to see the whole collection! Lots of beautiful and fashionable equestrian apparel!

Anna Dahlberg, married Blomdahl



On September 19th Anna and her husband Paul got married. It was the most beautiful wedding in a fairytale setting at the Tjolöholm castle in Sweden.

With gorgeous weather and stunning nature, Sweden showed off it's very best side for the almost hundred guests witnessing the marriage. Many guests came all the way from California to be part of this three day wedding celebration and Mette was of course there as the guest of honor.

Anna and Paul met in Los Angeles four years earlier and together they have a beautiful daughter, Isabelle, who is turning one in the middle of November.

Anna will take her husband's last name and become Anna Blomdahl.

Action -- Ride!


Today Mette was starring in a movie, as herself, riding her beautiful horse Marron.

The movie "Monday nights at seven", written and produced by Laura Keys, and starring Marty Sader who also directed, is a love story about a couple that is trying to pursue their dreams. The girl in the movie, Isabel, reaches out to Mette to become a working student in order to learn more about dressage and eventually fulfill her dream of becoming a dressage rider.

It was great fun to be part of this film team for a day and we are very much looking forward to see the movie when it comes out in the beginning of next year.

Santa Barbara County Dressage Chapter Clinic


The Santa Barbara County Dressage Chapter was proud to present a clinic with Mette Rosencrantz on October 3rd at Modoc Riding Ring in Santa Barbara.

An enthusiastic group of auditors and riders came for the day and went home with fresh approaches and reinforced foundations for their riding.

"Mette has the uncanny ability to immediately zero in on what each rider/horse team needs. She communicates the nuances of dressage with ease and humor, and she connects with people like no other clinician I have seen. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to ride with her!"
-Marianne Kruidenier, SBC CDS

Exiting weekend!



On September 11th - 13th the first CDI on the grounds of Epona farm in Thousand Oaks was held. Thanks to Michael Fowler, the owner of this beautiful farm, his support and desire to make this go, was fantastic!

To Regina Anatoli who made the show be on the map for the first time, but I'm sure not for the last.

To her staff, employers of Epona farms, Button Baker, the manager of the farm, and a strong supporter of good riding and training. Thanks to all for a great weekend.

That I with my horse Marron was third in GP and placed second in the GPS didn't make the weekend any less fun! He was so good and I'm so exited for the future!

Anne Solbraekke's super perfect horse Rico, was placed third in the PSG and second close to first in INT 1.

Now this coming week I will be back to my favorite place Epona, with my GP horse Marron. This time it will be an observation clinic with Rober Dover. It will be fun! I will keep you posted!

Dressage Showcase Featured at the 2015 FEI World Cup - Finals in Las Vegas

During this year's FEI World cup final in Las Vegas, a group of well known West Coast riders were asked to perform in a dressage showcase. Mette and Anna were one out of three combinations performing a pas de deux in front of 10 000 people at the Thomas & Mack Center.

"The wild wild west" was the theme for Mette and Anna's pas de deux with Mette dressed up as a cowboy with her gun and Anna as an indian with full head gear and music from well known western movies.

What a fun and exciting experience to be part of such a big event. The Thomas & Mack Center arena is huge and the atmosphere and crowd were amazing!

California Dreaming Productions Capistrano International CDI-W, Big Win for Mette and De Noir 3


Mette Rosencrantz was all smiles after winning the hard-fought CDI Prix St. Georges class with De Noir 3 on a big score of 71.974%.

A strong class of almost 30 horse/rider combinations left the ground jury quite impressed. Judge Sandra Hotz (3* USA) said that they saw lots of quality and well-ridden horses but the winning ride by Mette and De Noir was very active and expressive with lovely fluency, and lots of confidence!

You can watch the winning ride with expert commentary by FEI judge Axel Steiner through the link below and also read more from the show.
