It is not easy to follow in the footsteps of a parent who is a high-level rider, especially when it is the Olympic champion Pénélope Leprévost. Yet Eden Leprévost Blin Lebreton manages it wonderfully. With Don'T Stop Semilly, she won the first CSI 1* class of the day on the Arena Grandes Ecuries, yesterday she was already second with her beautiful 8-year-old gelding: "He always competes well, he usually wins one class per weekend, although we haven't done that many, he is really incredible. I've been riding him since he was 6 years old and we get on really well. I don't know yet if I'll ride him in the French Junior Championships, what is certain is that he has deserved a week's rest.” Also in the top 5, the son of Belgian Jérôme Guéry selected for the Olympics, the young Mathieu Guéry, at ease on the big arena with Nora de Mariposa, finishes fourth. Just ahead of him is Vera Desutter, who is none other than the daughter of Olivier Desutter, former rider of the French team. The young Alexandre Real finished second with Quando de l'Ecuyer.
