Michèle chooses Fuchs for Rio!
In 98 days the Paralympic Games will start in Rio de Janeiro.
With only 3 months to go before the start of the most important competition Michèle took a big decision.
As of March she could also count on een second iron in the fire for the Games. Beside her loyal Rainman she also trained with Kingsley Lucky Dance, once the GP horse of Julie De Deken.
But after 3 months of intense training Michèle came to the sad conclusion that Kingsley Lucky Dance was not an option any more for Rio.
"It was a tough decision because I love riding this top-horse so much, but driving every day 300km and the traffic jams around Antwerp just makes training in topsport conditions impossible. I respect the decision of the familiy De Deken to keep the horse at their home stable."
In the interest of horse and rider the decision was taken to end the cooperation.
Michèle looks forward and will now put all her faith and work in FBW Rainman.
"He has prooven in the past to be the greatest champion and my plan is to shine with him at the top this one last time. On the CPEDI in Mannheim he prooved he was worthy of his paralympic and world titels because he won the three tests. I am looking forward to fight with my best friend and I must give away that he is of the same opinion..."
