I had my first horse when I was 10, a Welsh pony named Perette. She then gave birth to Irancy, Jupiter, Kissme, Lord and Milord. My father had a sheep farming and when I was at school Perette and her foals used to spend their days with the sheeps and lambs. My paternal family always lived with horses, the draft horses were the motors of the farm of my grandparents and one of my uncles, Jean Lefebvre in Signy l'Abbaye, in France. He dedicated his life to the genetic selection of race horses, until he obtained the dream horse in 2005: an extraordinary, versatile horse, named PAR IXE, and I followed his ascension very carefully.
