A MORE FUN AND SUSTAINABLE CHOICE FOR HORSE LOVERS WORLDWIDE
We think having fun should be an important part of work. Equally as important is doing good and giving back. So we’re all about that. Our vision is to create products and movements that encourage a creative, fun and sustainable life. Hopefully with lots of horses in it too!
We’re creating something that we’ve missed out there. A place with good quality products, well selected brands, great design as well as quirky and unique products. A place where the customer is king and service and user experience are key words. It’s our Get the Gallop but more than that, it’s your Get the Gallop.
Get the Gallop was founded by three women, Lisen Bratt Fredricson, Caroline Kanekrans and Louise Hamilton, who one day decided to join forces and create – Get the Gallop
Lisen Bratt Fredricson has made a stamp on Swedish show jumping not just through her two Olympics, several Grand Prix wins, Falsterbo Derby win, Swedish Championship titles and so on, but also through being an avid entrepreneur having founded events and companies such as the Swedish Riders Award (Ryttargalan), Swedish Select Horse Sales and Elmia Scandinavian Horse Show. She was also voted Athlete Role Model by the International Olympic Committee in 2010. We’re impressed. And she’s married to three time Olympian, Olympic medallist, European Champion and artist Peder Fredricson. Not that we’re star struck or anything.
Caroline Kanekrans. Also a horse lover and rider. Having grown up with more horses and dogs than she can count, the stable and kennels gave her a good foundation for life as an entrepreneur. At 19 she started her first business. Since then she’s been working in various industries including fashion, interiors, advertising and communication, either running her own businesses or working at nice companies such as Mother London and Dubarry of Ireland. With roles within Wholesale, Business Development, PR and Brand Marketing she’s gained experience from different fields and areas.
Louise Hamilton. Our Art Director, Web-pro and Digi-everything! She’s the only one of us not riding, but with three daughters and being a partner in this horsey business we’re not too worried. Her career in advertising has taken her all over the world, working at some of the top names in Advertising and Digital Communication. She also co-founded an art gallery and one of the first webshops in Sweden to sell first hand art online. From art to horses – not as big a leap as you might think!
In 2020 the founding trio was joined by another horse girl and power woman, Anna Axenbjer. Anna is now a partner as well as Head of Production at Get the Gallop. Apart from being a kick ass buyer and creative product developer, she’s also got her eyes set on building the Get the Gallop brand and making sure it’s done in a sustainable and long lasting way.
