Horze has recently celebrated the opening of yet another of their own stores, to the delight of horse lovers and owners in Drammen, Norway. On the morning of the opening an excited crowd gathered outside the doors of the Drammen shop, which lies at the large riding centre in Linnesvollen, the hosts of some of Norway’s biggest competitions. There were many that had been waiting several hours for a chance to see the new collections from Horze and B Vertigo. A group from Haugusund had even slept in their cars outside the shop for a chance to be there.
Newly appointed Shop Manager, Charleen Fiala was at the grand opening. “This is something we’ve been looking forward to for a very long time”, she explains exuberantly. “There’s been an overwhelming response from the public, and I think it’s going to be fantastic to have a shop on this site”.
11 year old school-girls Marte Figenschau and Vilde Knutsen are both riders at Linnesvollen Riding Centre. “We cycled like crazy all the way from school, hoping all the way that the shop would be open. We’ve been excited about this for ages, and we’ve not been disappointed: they’ve got everything here! We love Horze because the products are perfect for us, and affordable. It’s amazing that we are getting their shop right by our stables”.
For Retail Manager for Horze Norway, Hanne Smith Nielsen, the location has particular meaning. “When Horze was first starting out in Norway, we were here, at this very location with a small tent, selling our small collection. Now we are here opening our very own shop, the 8th in Norway, and with several fantastic collections. It is a big achievement, and a real reflection of our success”.
