"The smile of Belgium". His family bred horses and he grew up around the business, that was then a natural path for him to enter the world of the international rider as soon as he started riding at the age of 10. Quickly growing in this middle, he starts riding Quarco de Kerambars, the horse that put him under the spotlights, when this one was 4. 8 years of collaboration where he accessed the international showjumping level and won a lot of great competitions. Today, married to the international French rider Anne Sophie Godard and installed in the Haras de Lauzelle in Wavre (Belgique), he is considered as one of the mainstay of the Belgium Team and dedicate his career to prepare young horses to the international circuits. That's what makes Rik Hemeryck one of the most respected riders.
