Ask guillaumecanet: Is there a historical ou legendary horse you love or makes you dream?
Yes there is one horse that makes me dream, it is Armitages Boy. This poor horse didn't have the career he deserved. He discovered his very great rider, Lorenzo de Luca, a little late. It is with him he had amazing results, in Nations Cups as well as in Grand Prix such as Madrid or Mexico where he had very great rankings.

He had a lot of setbacks, injuries like in the European Championships where he was finally ready to do something great and finish on a great Championship. Just like the World Games, he was supposed to do it but he got injured. He always kind of missed its rendez-vous while it's an exceptional horse who jumps so well, with a big heart.

Now he is retired, he makes foals, very beautiful foals, I have one of them, 4 years old, who jumps extraordinary well. At the moment he reproduces a lot, he is very promising as a stallion. For me he is a legendary horse who will continue to count even more thanks to his foals.
