I am a person who loves sports. I cycle, run, ski, snowboard and play tennis. I devote myself to all this when I have the time.

I choose my horses with my husband. He helps me to find them, train them, and he also helps me to improve… So I have a great team supporting me, thanks to Longines, my parents, my husband, my horses, my groom and all those who help me every day!
