L’amazzone elvetica Janika Sprunger e quella canadese, Tiffany Foster, hanno recentemente dovuto salutare due dei loro migliori soggetti.
Janika Sprunger dovuto salutare la sua KWPN di 13 anni, Bonne Chance CW (Baloubet du Rouet).
Per lei è arrivato il momento di una meritata pensione e di una nuova carriera.
Bonny inizierà infatti una carriera nell’allevamento ad Haras de Clarbec.
Questo binomio, a partire dal 2013, ha avuto un’incredibile carriera colma di ottimi risultati ottenuti nei maggiori eventi a cinque stelle tra cui spiccano le partecipazioni a numerose tappe di Coppa delle Nazioni, Campionati Europei e Olimpiadi.

THANK YOU BONNIE ❤️ !!! She made dreams come true and gave us so many incredible moments with winning several GPs up to 5*, jumping numberous of clear rounds for the Swiss Team in Nation Cups and Championchips, carrying me over the Olympic Games in Rio with two clear rounds and winning team bronce at the European Championchip in Aachen! In so short time she has proved so much!! A tiny horse with a heart bigger than i could even imagine a horse could have. She was the most clever horse i ve ever met but yes she had also a lot of attitude 😉 !! Thank you for everyone that has crossed her way and looked after her with the love she deserved! I wished she could have stayed longer in the sport but now its time for her second career as a breeding mare @harasdeclarbec! We thank family Megret for the collaboration and hope for many healthy babies from Bonne Chance to be born!! #bonnechancecw #horseofmyheart #horseofalifetime #mybff #forevergrateful @josefinejoensson @lolitariotte @ebbakrmer @partanen @geleke @jaspergaarenstroom @duskwood @tiffouille_tif @louise_swe @hidiehh @isabellerode @paulalicja @vincentlamaille @virginiemordant @julienhouser_marechalferrant
Tempo di una meritata pensione anche per Victor, il fuoriclasse di Tiffany Foster.
Di proprietà di Artisan Farms e Torrey Pines Stables, Victor ha avuto una brillante carriera insieme a Tiffany.
Insieme quasi per caso e grazie alle buone parole di Eric Lamaze, i due hanno avuto l’occasione di passare insieme moltissimi anni, quasi 10, partecipando a innumerevoli Coppe delle Nazioni, alle Olimpiadi di Londra 2012 e a moltissimi altri eventi a cinque stelle.

Victor was the first horse Andy and Carlene Ziegler ever bought for Eric Lamaze to ride. He was purchased through Meredith and Markus Beerbaum as a 7 year old in 2006. He was meant to be purchased by someone else, but that fell through at the last minute, so Artisan Farms saved the day by stepping up to buy him with @torreypinesstable Eric rode him for the first six months then left him with me to ride while he went to Europe with his more experienced group. Victor and I hit it off right from the start and when we showed up at Spruce Meadows, Eric watched one round and told Andy and Carlene that sometimes a horse and rider were meant to be together and this was one of those times. Andy and Carlene agreed to let me keep the ride, and this was foreshadowing for how the rest of my career would begin to unfold; by Andy, Carlene and Eric giving me the first of many unbelievable opportunities. Victor took me to my first victory in the International Ring at Spruce Meadows, to my first Olympic Games in London, to my first Nations Cup double clear and then on to four more double clear Nations Cup performances for Canada. Those double clears included two at my home show @thunderbirdshowpark and a coveted double clear at the @spruce_meadows Masters. He taught me how to compete and take risks but more importantly, he taught me how to become best friends with a horse. I will never forget what he has done for me and I will always cherish the 10 years we had together. We will try to repay those years of service by giving him the happiest retirement at our farm in Belgium. Thank you to the Zieglers, to Eric, to Caro for taking such great care of him and, above anyone else, THANK YOU TO VICTOR ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ @artisanfarms @carleneziegler @torreypinesstable @ericlamaze @carolineholmberg1 @meredith_mb @equestrian_can @eduardofelix8052
