equita lyon trade fair antares sellier

After a year-long break, seeing you all again at the Equita Lyon trade fair was a real pleasure!

We’ll treasure some great memories! So, let’s take a look back at our programme.

Thursday 28/10:

The highlight of the day was Bryan Balsiger‘s visit, the Swiss Antarès rider and world no.1 in the under-25 rankings. Bryan came 11th at the World Cup round held at Equita Lyon, on his horse, AK’s Courage.

Another high profile visit to the Antarès booth on Thursday was Hassen and his horse, Peyo. You can catch up with our live Q&A session on our Instagram account, in the video section.

You can also watch a replay of our live session with riding instructor and internationally acclaimed professional rider, Andy Booth. Andy is also a specialist in the Horsemanship Approach, now called Ethological Riding.

Friday 29/10:

Visit and interview with our Antarès rider, Mathieu Billot, who came 5th at the Equita Masters (1m60) in the CSI5* class on his horse, Lord de Muze. You’ll also find an exclusive interview with him on our YouTube channel.

Sunday 31/10:

Meetup at the Antarès booth with YouTube star, Mathilde, from Dance with Him, which finished with an autograph session.

Other standout moments at Equita Lyon included:

  • Gudrun Patteet and Sea Coast Pebbles Z came 3rd in the 1.50m CSI5 class*
  • Wilfrid Prudhomme and Une Sauterelle took 6th place in the Grand Prix – Grand National 1.50m (Antarès Sellier stables)
  • And to cap it all, Koos de Ronde came 3rd in the World Cup round.

We would like to sincerely thank all our Antarès partners and guests and congratulate all our riders for their performances at Equita Lyon event. We’ll see you again soon in Avignon for the Cheval Passion show on 19 to 23 January 2022.
