A must-watch to kick off your morning.
This video from H&M Life is really, really cool. Featuring show jumper Malin Baryard-Johnsson and H&M Tornesch, a 16-year-old Swedish Warmblood stallion, this high-tech footage really shows off the power and elegance of the equine athlete.
A little background: Malin and H&M Tornesch have competed together since 2008 representing Sweden. Their impressive record boasts many top placings in CSI5* classes and several Nations Cup appearances. Malin herself has represented Sweden in three Olympics and three World Equestrian Games. And, yep, H&M Tornesch is missing his right eye: an eye injury from his youth was re-injured in 2013 and the eye was subsequently removed. His partial blindness is a testament to his relationship with Malin.
Pretty cool to see a mainstream company such as H&M investing time into a stylish pair such as this. It makes perfect sense though! Style and horses go hand in hand, and this pair are proof of that.
