The news


What a nice surprise!



On December 27th at Pau, EMIRA DU GOUET did a comeback race (had not run since April 2018) and her debut in a cross-country race. It was not obvious for her as the cross-country track of Pau is very technical and difficult.


She did remarkably well as she finished good second!      


 Very well ridden by Paulin Blot, she started at the back of the field… and as she jumped perfectly, she came closer little by little.


In the last diagonal, she was still far in 4th or 5th position. Paulin told us: “I was going well but without anything exceptional in the tank. And as I asked her to go forward, she bolted and finished very well.”  


 Among the partners of the syndicate Le Mors aux Dents there was joy as EMIRA ran for the first time with their colors.  


 We also want to congratulate her breeder Thierry Lemoine in Nièvre.    


                                            We’ll enjoy ourselves with her in 2020.
