training place

Haras de Bory in La Boissière-École

Best Result

There was Lyon with a 6th place in the 2* where there was a good Grand Prix. Otherwise this winter in Paris in the Grand Prix 2*, a big 145/150 where I am without fault. Now I was really happy! I screwed up my barrage and finished 9th but for me, it remains one of the best performances.

Why Horse Pilot?

I was looking for a jacket that was elegant and in fact, at first, it was through the Airbag that I came to Horse Pilot. Because I was looking for an airbag jacket that was elegant, not too warm and well cut. I saw the Horse Pilot jacket on several riders and that's how I contacted the brand. It made me want to wear Horse Pilot and as a result, I discovered the whole range of outfits and technical clothing. And because the team is cool too! (laughs)

My tips and tricks

I worked with a mental coach, David Corona, who is great and who taught me to have anchor points just before I started on the track. The anchoring points can be the way to move towards the track between the paddock and the entrance or when I feel. It's more psychological than physical stuff, but it's my way of conditioning myself to do the course, to be serene and calm.

Horse Pilot favorite (except for the airbag)

The shirts! I find them very, very comfortable to wear. They are elastic and we are very comfortable in them. I really appreciate it! And the tie too. Not having to do it every morning is cool too. (laughs) Just being able to hang it up like that is very convenient.

A story or an anecdote or someone who links you to Horse Pilot

It's Alexandre De Rothschild. He was wearing that Horse Pilot jacket that amazed me and when I discovered it was an airbag, it made me want to try it.
