Ask @thierryrozier : How many years have you been riding? How many years have you been a coach?
Hello Britt,

I began quite late with junior shows. I’ve never competed with ponies. Then I went on the Senior team.

Then I’ve taken a break and I especially focused on the formation, and the riders training. Then I worked in horse racing for a year and a half. I wanted to drop out jumping to educate racing horses. Then I was contacted to coach. The race world was unknown for me and I didn’t have that much experience, so I went back to jumping.

Then I started again riding, it was a challenge for me to start again high level, and I managed it within 3 months. Then there was the fact that my horse was tested positive, a thing that I still don’t understand and that completely put me off. So I dropped out everything again.

And a year ago, the 30th of July of 2016, in Dinard, on my birthday, many horse riders asked me again why I would not be riding again. They let me that challenge, that obviously I wanted to take up.

In a very short time, I returned to high level.
