Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? She began the sport at age six in Bourghelles, France.
Why this sport? Her parents took her to a riding school when she was six where she was introduced to doing acrobatics on ponies. She fell in love with the sport right away and since the team was looking for new members was soon enrolled in it and preparing for competitions. "I like the richness of the sport, which brings together everything I love - acrobatics, dancing, and horseback riding. It's a true passion. I can hardly go without it for more than 15 days. It allows me to clear my head, push my limits."
Name of coach Davy Delaire [national], FRA
