Pierre Michelet to visit Victoria

Eventing Victoria is excited to be bringing Pierre Michelet out to Australia in March 2020. 

Pierre’s courses include the Normandy World Equestrian Games and the Rio Olympics, PAU 5* and The World Young Horse Championships at Lion d’Angers.

Before he was a Cross Country Course Designer Pierre rode to 5* level and achieved 15th at Badminton Horse Trials in 1994 riding Aleq De Fondelyn,

He will be busy during his visit. He lands 10 days out from The Australian Eventing Championships at Wandin and will spend some with the crew there. The weekend of March 14/15 he will hold a CD workshop at Wandin for Course Designers.

The following week Pierre will be spending time at Werribee with Furphy Media Melbourne 3 Day Event Course Designers Ewan Kellet and Mick Pineo to see what is planned for this year. On the Thursday March 19th he will be part of the judging panel for The Young Eventing Horse at Dressage and Jumping With the Stars.

Friday afternoon it is back to Wandin to walk the 4* course with the riders and a meet and greet.

On cross country day Sunday, Pierre will be there to see the course being ridden and give us some words of wisdom on the live stream.
