The schedule is subject to change regularly depending on the fitness level of the horses, the training agenda and the latest competition results. It is difficult to foresee which competitions I will be participating in and the various heights of jumps, since this depends on a variety of factors. A single bad result or injury can upset the whole schedule; or, if I quickly reach good results, the objectives may be reevaluated accordingly.
For example, at the beginning of 2016, I set precise objectives, but unfortunately my horse Hardy had a very serious accident following a head wound. The first time he was injured, he had been hospitalized for three weeks, and he underwent a surgical operation; the second time, the horse who occupies the stall next to him, Jiva, kicked him and fractured his face. Hardy received cutting-edge medical care and was rehabilitated with supreme devotion and professionalism in the Le Domaine du Maley stables until he recuperated his full athletic abilities.
I am a beneficiary of the Sport Culture Etudes program at Bienne high school. Jiva, my eight-year-old mare, has participated in 120 and 125 classes, as well as a few 130 classes. Hardy re-entered competitions at the CSI* of Cagnes-sur-Mer in the 110, 115 and 120 classes. Avoriaz des Sources returned to my trainer Julien Gonin in France after spending a year in my stable, and I acquired a new six-year-old horse, Dinka’s de Monfirak (who is a little bit crazy at the moment).
