Vassily de Lassos has joined my team in May 2017. He is an outstanding talent in all three phases and nothing seems to ever be difficult for him. He has fantastic paces, the most wonderful jump and is a very fast and quick thinking horse. An absolute dream to ride cross country!

Vassily de Lassos was produced to 2* level by French top rider Thomas Carlile, who has done the most amazing job with him. I am so thankful to Vassily´s owner, David & Paula Evans, for letting me ride their wonderful horse – he is just such a delight! We have finished 8th in our first 3* together at the Blenheim CIC3* for 8 and 9 year old horses in September 2017 – and the 2018 season was just outstanding with fabulous runs at Tattersalls and the Nations Cup in Aachen.

The highlight of our 2018 season was clearly the Individual 4th Place at the World Equestrian Games  by finishing on our Dressage score and helping the Australian Team to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.

From now on, all our efforts are directed to our campaign towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. We will build him up slowly and carefully to give him the best chance to fullfil his best potential in August 2020.

I couldn´t me more excited for the future with this truly ‘once in a lifetime’ horse!
