Gerhard Etter competed internationally in showjumping at the highest level and was selected twice for the Olympics and many other Swiss team duties. He also has experience on the breeding side having stood stallions such as Wandango which was one of the most influential stallions in Switzerland.
Two of Gerhard’s many finds were Cylana and Admirable. Cylana, the mare with which then eighteen year-old Reed Kessler jumped at the Olympics; and Admirable, Marie Etter Pellegrin’s very successful horse. Gerhard Etter sourced many top showjumpers for Europe and Hunters and Jumpers for the American market. One of his particular strengths is the ability to find a horse that is suitable for his client.
And as is so often the case, there is a woman behind a successful man. Hedi Etter who also competed successfully in showjumping works alongside her husband and ensures the smooth running of all activities.
The Etter family business has a long tradition which reaches back to 1936. The family’s connection with horses goes back generations on both sides of the family. Gerhard’s father, Werner Etter, dealt in horses; in particular Swiss bred Freiberger and horses from Poland. Likewise Hedi’s father, Hans, also dealt in Freiberger horses and horses from Poland.
