Brasseur switches to warm blood horsesDouble World Four-in-hand Champion Felix-Marie Brasseur will start with warm blood horses next season. Brasseur will start with the team, which was successfully driven by Jan vanden Berghe this season at national and international level. The horses are owned by the Belgian Philippe Dubaere.
Brasseur’s manager came in contact with Dubaere and agreed to a cooperation: “I had noticed Philippe’s four-in-hand before, they are very nice horses and I believe that they meet the current standard the judges want to see these days. Dubaere has a heart for horses and his wish is to improve them. This is what I appreciate, a horseman with an ambitious project,” says Brasseur.
Brasseur’s goal is to compete at the FEI European Four-in-hand Championships in Aachen 2015. He will compete for the first time with this new team at the international driving event in Horst (NED) from 16 to 19 April 2015.
The driver from Marchin in Belgium has also made a proposal to the national driving committee to become the dressage trainer of the Belgian four-in-hand drivers.
