Two years ago, Danielle Lambert was still working in an office. Today, she won her second CSI1* class in Chantilly. An impressive change of career for the 46-year-old Canadian: « I grew up in California and rode there as a junior but then I stopped about 23 years ago and last year started back up again. I called Philippe Rozier when Covid hit and told him I needed to ride, I could not just sit inside, and he told me to come down and ride with him. That was last May, so we are now one year in and I have a great string of horses, Philippe is an amazing trainer and we have a lot of fun. » One of those great horses is the grey Cobalt de Nantuel, a 9-year-old Selle Français, almost 1.82 m tall: « He’s got a big stride and a big galop and he just loves it. This was just a nice course where he could galop and float and turn easily. »
