Clear round in the 145/150 class of the Grand Prix 2* in Paris, it remains one of the best performances.
Guillaume Canet, artist, competitor and Horseman
Why this rider?
Recognized and well-known for his work as an actor and a director, Guillaume has also been a Horseman and a peerless competitor for years. He is a true passionate, as an artist and as a rider but he is also open to other sports and universe such as motorcycle. His human values, his open-mindedness and his involvement for safety in the equestrian world make us proud to have him among our ambassadors.
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)
Guillaume's 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 as well. Not having to do it every morning is cool too. (laughs) Just being able to hang it up like that is very convenient.
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.
A fact linked 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.
"Horses to breath and keep my feet on the ground."
