The results of our Pilots flourished with spring… A look back at four weeks of competitions rich in emotion and performance.
April : world cup and vittel horse club
The best riders in the world had their tickets for the AccorHotels Arena from April 10 to 15 to compete in the coveted World Cup Final! Our Pilots were also present and were not idle.
Cédric Angot emerged unscathed with three 2* rankings and two podium : a victory and a third place for the Norman, accompanied by a ninth position.
Félicie Bertrand also came back with three rankings including a nice third place on a 5* track at 1m50.
We also saw twice our airbag ambassador Philippe Rozier in the Top 10 and Olivier Robert.
The same weekend took place the CSI of Vittel where Charles Henri-Fermé and his fast Volonté d’Eve were noticed. The couple offered themselves two second places in chronometer tests! Gregory Cottard confirmed his good shape with a fourth position.
from east to west of Eurasia…
The following week, Shane Breen was performing on the 5* tracks of Shanghai, two fourth places were acquired by the Irish.
Three of our headliners were present at the Belgian Opglabbeek competition: Gregory Cottard, François Mathy Junior and Guillaume Foutrier gave very little chance to the others.
The first finished on each step of the podium at the end of a 2* courses, the second took a second place, while the third placed seventh in a class with jump-off
In the arenas of the Grand National de Cluny, Olivier Robert was in great shape! With his legendary good mood, he first won on Saturday before taking a second place in the Pro Elite Grand Prix. Harold Boisset finished seventh on a Pro1 track.
SUCCESS IN the HEXAGON
Many of our ambassadors answered the call to the CSI 3* in Maubeuge at the end of April, as did Olivier Robert, Charles-Henri Fermé and Gregory Cottard, all three of whom we found in the final classification of the Grand Prix 3* (1m55). They finished fourth, ninth and tenth respectively.
Previously, Harold Boisset had won two classes and finished second on fences up to 1m50.
Our brand new ambassador, Clarance Gendron, honoured our colours by taking them to several awards ceremonies at the CSI 2* of Mantes-la-Jolie.
No holidays for our pilots in May
Félicie Bertrand shaded her friends with her leaping Sultane des Ibis by taking second place in the Grand Prix 3* !
As usual, Charles-Henri Fermé added a victory to his list of victories, at the end of a 3* barrage race, cumulated to a fifth position on a homonymous test.
A fifth place for Shane Breen, a seventh for Marine Bouton… No doubt, they are ready to fight for the rest of the season!
On the Moorsele CSI side, Gregory Cottard once again flew over the obstacles and won an event on the first day of the 3* competition. Then we found him in fifth and ninth place in the results tables and ninth place in the Grand Prix!
Guillaume Foutrier has also made a name for himself four times by placing eighth in the 3* Grand Prix.
The weeks go by and the season continues in a great way for our Pilots! Let the performances continue like this, we’re behind you!
