Modern art and music enthousiast, it is toward his first passion for the equestrian world that Kamel Boudra chose to guide his journalistic career.
Presenter and iconic commentator, Kamel has run the show on the French TV channel Equidia for the past decade, before using his talent at SFR sport.
In parallel of his job, he follows with passion the evolution of the horses from his breeding.
No, because today, we also find a comfortable quality of runways despite the little size of them. The runways chiefs works a lot to protected horses but puts riders in the technical difficulty. And that’s exactly the difficulty of this job.
I would especially find a solution for the equestrian sports to keep it in the television.
At my risk and expense, because I ‘m not trying to apply for a job elsewhere.
I don’t even want to leave the boat.
I would say the biggest challenge is to stay in the Olympic Games. The horseriding is present in the Olympic games since its inception. And after all, every time, there is a risk to be removed from the Games. Certain sports go in and others do out.
I think for France, it has much improved in general, all disciplines inclusive. The CCE riders are really simple. If I can give you a clear picture, the CCE is the equivalent of rugby and the show jumping is the equivalent of french football.
I think that we have achieved the maximum frequency of competitions.
And for the impact on horses, I often asked myself. But finally, we can see they ageing well. And I believe that if it had a negative impact on them, the results could be reduced and the horses would not give what they giving.
When I started, I was the first to do interviews on the ends of runway. At the beginning It was very hard because they were not accustomed. Today, it’s easier, the riders are playing the game. Some of them come to see me themselves.
Let’s speak about Equestrian especially. We had a managing editor. We conducted a meeting on wednesday and we are discussed at the moment, according to the news, shoots, and our desires of the moment. And all of that need to be confirmed by the managing editor.
