Horsepower in Action

The new Alpine series shows stories from everyday life in Zermatt. And with talented actresses and actors in the roles of their lives.

Benny

Benny is a Polish coldblood – and he really does come from Poland! The five-year-old coldblood is calm, reliable and an absolute sweetheart. Previously, he’s carried wood, worked as a farm horse, and pulled carriages in Poland and Zurich. He has been delivering packages in Zermatt for Alpin Cargo since 2019.

The company isn’t only responsible for local logistics – it also delivers packages of up to 30 kg on behalf of Planzer Parcel. And now Benny carries people as well as packages. Horsepower by Planzer.

Tereza

 

Tereza has loved working with horses since she was young. In 2011, she turned her passion into her job and completed an apprenticeship as a carriage driver in Engelberg. Tereza comes from Czechia and now lives in Täsch.

Her passionate, direct and honest manner is the perfect complement to Benny’s calm character and ability to soothe strong emotions. Tereza spends many hours with Benny every day, both on the training ground and in the stables.

Tereza

Tereza hat schon als junge Frau oft und gerne mit Pferden gearbeitet. 2011 machte sie diese Leidenschaft zum Beruf und absolvierte in Engelberg eine Ausbildung zur Kutscherin. Die gebürtige Tschechin lebt heute in Täsch.

Ihre temperamentvolle, direkte und ehrliche Art ergänzt sich hervorragend mit dem Charakter von Benny, der die Wogen der Emotionen mit Gelassenheit zu glätten vermag.Mit Benny verbringt Tereza jeden Tag viele Stunden beim Training und im Stall.

 

Lina

 

Part horse, part donkey – that’s Lina. The mule from Valais is a hybrid – the offspring of a female horse and a male donkey – which means it can’t have young of its own. Lina comes from France, and being a hybrid means that she can’t have children herself. But she’s intelligent, sure-footed and extremely curious. And she’s Benny’s best friend. Lina has been broken in and is now used for riding and as a pack animal.

She’s full of energy and loves to lead Benny on adventures both planned and spontaneous. Lina can do anything – except be alone.

Christian

 

Tourists may think that Christian comes from Zermatt, but we know better. He’s from Täsch, and that’s totally different – it’s a whole five kilometres away. But Christian still knows Zermatt like the back of his hand. He worked as a team lead for luggage/freight traffic/shunt services on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn railway for many years.

Today, he’s the head of Alpin Cargo’s Zermatt site. With stoic patience, he serves as the link between local authorities, tourism services, employees, vets, blacksmiths and everyone else looking out for Benny’s welfare.
