My Father, this champion! I don’t remember that olympic games victory, I was to small, but as every son of a champion, I did too proudly wear that medal around my neck. At that time, I couldn’t imagine how that paternal ambition would be contagious. It would be the beginning of the esteem of a son to its father.
Today, I can claim that my father was making history : 45 years later, he remains the only jumping Belgian rider owner of such a reward.
My father never stops. He is part of those who anticipate and constantly renew themselves.
Don’t let this somewhat boorish man from the Ardennes fool you, he is in fact a sensitive and charming man. His international reputation, not only for his athletic results but even more for his business ethics and his knowledge are one of the reasons for which I am proud to be his son.
I was 15 years old, I was Euopean champion, when in Fontainebleau, I managed one of the only two double clear of the competition. After the competition, my father’s reaction was kind of discreet. But on the video, I saw a man who was jumping as much as my horse, that was my father.
A handshake is worth more than any contract and a good deal is when all involved parties are satisfied.
Last but not least, to make one’s passion its job is a honour and an opportunity.
