Mattia Harnacke: a model and his horse.

Having moved from Italy to Australia at the age of ten, Mattia Harnacke has since modelled for the likes of Armani and Dolce and Gabbana. But for the 20-year-old model, none of those accomplishments compare to the relationship he’s developed here with his horse, Chase.

“It’s so much more than a companion or friend, because when you ride, you share a connection that is so much deeper than that,” Harnacke shared.”Riding is always going to be my priority because it’s my main source of happiness.” We got up-close and personal with the Italian model to see what makes this relationship between a man and his horse so incredible.
