Matt Harnacke was first discovered by a fashion talent scout at an equestrian event. Not surprisingly, he has been combining his two big passion, riding and modeling, ever since. While working for internationally recognized fashion firms such as Dolce & Gabbana and Emporio Armani in shows and shootings around the world, it is clear that Matt always finds time for horses. As an example, we can see Matt is his Instagram account riding his own eight-year-old horse (Chase), in dressage competitions in Australia, or receiving a jump lesson in a friend's barn in Los Angeles
In a recent interview published by NF Style, Matt shared his thoughts around the most fulfilling part of riding "I think my favorite part about riding are those small, little moments you get when you really feel like everything happens. I feel like so much of the time, you’re training and looking for that moment where you can release—when it clicks, it’s just so, so special. Dressage is so meticulous, but I think that’s what’s so rewarding. It just really makes you appreciate the small things, I think”
