    A best memory with the horses

    « My best memory was when Quabar and I won the European Pony Championship in 2014! I've spent very good years to work with Quabar and my parents to perform at the highest level. He will always be my "Favorite One" and I am very lucky because I see him everyday, he is still in my stable, I continue riding him and I follow his progresses with other riders. »
