Becoming an anchor point for the stallion – a person to trust, Joost decided to let Else show D Angelo in Paris. “It is an easy decision: she is the one who does all the training with him; it is important that he has somebody to trust in the showring. D Angelo will need this anchor point when he is back in the show arena to avoid that he turns back to the overexcited horse he was in Bruges.” Else is absolutely clear about the situation: “I had some doubts, it’s not my world and I know this is a separate discipline. For me this is a world apart so what could I do there. I certainly don’t want to ruin D’Angelo’s qualities because I miss the experience. I had watched the movie of the show last year and the level is very high. Not only the horses are top quality, but also the best trainers come together. But you will get there with hard work. And I am eager to learn. So I agreed with Joost that he will give me a good coach to prepare me for Paris.”
