Cher Epoux was born in the stud farm of Sylvie Bouchanville in St Ouen sur Loire (58). The breeder and owner is very happy: “Cher Epoux remained very consistent over the three workshops and I think that’s what allowed him to win the championship. This year, we really wanted to protect him without asking too much work on the bars. It’s been one month he jumps with a rider and it has always been relatively easy. It is true that since he was born we believe in him! We had 7 pm transportation to come to Saint-Lô, and it has absolutely not changed. You can really say that we are not here for nothing, we are very excited!
Competition was quite tough – Cash du Plessis (Orient Express and Embleme du Plessis by Rosire) arrived second with the note of 17.26. Cash du Plessis, the son of Orient Express HDC was born at André Chenu stud-farm in Mesnil Mauger (14). Photo: the son of Orient Express
