for love of horses.

It was at the age of 10, after being invited to ride in a riding school as a thank-you for her mother's communications work, that Barbara discovered horses. It was love at first sight for the young Alsatian.  

It was then that she decided to make horses her vocation. She devotes her passion and love to horses, and they love her back.  

Gifted with an unfailing rigor, seriousness and artistic spirit, she decided to follow the path of dressage, which she considers an art requiring constancy, professionalism but above all communication and love for the horse.   


Over the years, she developed and consolidated her skills in parallel with her studies, until she obtained a DUT in Marketing Techniques. To validate her choices, she took a sabbatical year after her BAC, which she spent working in a dressage stable near Fontainebleau.  


At the age of 17, she bought her first horse: Crack de Normandie, thanks to a sum of money bequeathed to her by her grandmother. Crack was 7 years old and had little experience, but Barbara was determined. After a winter job during her sabbatical year, she joined the French Young Riders Team, which led to her 1st European Championships in 1999, and she was part of the French team for the European Championships in 2000 and 2001. In 2000, she won her 1st title: Champion de France Jeune Cavaliers with her faithful Crack de Normandie.

Barbara doesn't rush things; she likes to spend time with the horses and train them at home. When she feels that they trust her and are ready to express themselves serenely in competition, she presents them at the trials.  And so, little by little, she adds to her collection of titles.  Her record of achievements continues to grow as her work progresses.  

But the recipe remains the same: a great deal of love for horses, listening to their needs, rigor and patience, for results that delight horses and riders alike.
