familyI was raised with my two siblings Louis and Nike in an architecture household close to the city Darmstadt.
sportSport always played a big role in my family. My dad´s enthusiasm for all kinds of ball sport made me play Tennis from the early age. With his support I played successfully in the clubs youth team as well as in the squad until the age of 14. Nevertheless the pure of horses cast a spell over me very soon. Tennis was nice, but horses were fascinating! From 5 years of age I rode alongside on the local clubs horses, but very soon I started taking part at small shows and my mum bought our first family horse.
ridingFor me it has always been a destiny to have horses in my life. My mum has chosen our horses as well as my trainer with the goal of joining training pathways and shared education – from the beginning I learned how to ride young horses and work with them -
I am very grateful for my mum´s foresight at that time as these experiences help me a lot in my daily work with them right now.
my educationEver since I was a child I was certain to not only make my interest in horses my purpose in life but also my occupation. In order to build that on a economic basis I opted for a finance and business administration study, which I completed during my time at Dorothee Schneider’s stable “Gestüt St.Stephan“. After 6 years of intensive teaching and lessons from Dorothee I set up my own business in 2015.
Additionally i would like to take the exam in a master of horse business to pursue the joy of teaching not only horses, but also trainees. In autumn 2018 i could register for that.
Besides the formative time at Dorothee Schneider´s place, i was also schooled by Hans Riegler, Karin Hahn and Johnny Hilberath, as well as Armin Schäfer jr. in the jumping saddle.
my trainersThe longstanding education with Dorothee can be summarized in one sentence: “Learning from the best.“ Precise riding is continuous motivation for the horses whilst she is educating them in an outstanding and exemplary manner. The basic principle to see horses as your partner in sport apply for her as well as for me. At this point I would like to take the opportunity to thank her dearly for this exceptional apprenticeship.
The daily work with horses implies steadily learning in a variety of ways - so, I am always looking forward to the future. Thereby I benefit from the help of my trainer Sebastian Heinze, with whom I work with since 2017.
“Riding is not only a job – it is lived passion“
With a diversified, consistent and constant education, I want to use my time for the education of dressage horses which reach from Youngsters up to Grand Prix Horses. This education and training is supposed to give scopes for individual development, depending on the individual needs of every single horse. The well-adjusted, balanced horse, according to appropriate standards of education is, for me, of capital importance, which I certainly communicate during the classes I give.
The riding center „Amselhof“ of family Kemmer in the hannoverian region offers the best possibilities to meet this versatile approach: one riding arena, several outdoor riding courses, a canter track and two longing arenas support the daily training. A small training course or Cavaletti work, best riding possibilities, generous pastures and well-designed paddocks provide the mental balance and "let your soul dangle" the four-legged friends.

"I was at Stella´s place in Germany several times with my horses: she always sets highest priority to a correct and balanced seat and gave me a lot of good hints for the show. A big thank you to her professional and loving care! Moreover she always makes great effort for the well-being of her horses."

"Dear Stella! Thank you for an amazing time with you and the horses in Bippen! This year have been amazing in so many ways and something I will always carry with me. I have developed my riding, but also grown as a person. When I decided to move from Sweden to Germany I didn’t know what came ahead nor that this would be the best year I’ve ever had. I am very sad to move back home for studies but everything has its time and I’m forever grateful for the time I got to spend with you and the horses. I’m so thankful for everything you taught me, all the horses I got to ride, and the fact that I got a friend for life. It has been an honor to work with such a humble person with a huge passion for her work and great love for her horses. It has ben a huge pleasure working with you. So again, thank you Stella!"
