About me 

 

Hi Everyone,

I was born on April 7th 1983 in Evilard – Switzerland. I’ve always loved horses, but no one in my family was into horse riding, that's why I started to ride only when I was a teenager as a hobby.

My passion and my attitudes convinced my parents to buy the first horse Flamenco, who allowed me to take the licence.

From that moment on horses turned out to be a key part of my life, and success arrived soon. I rode for 7 years in the Willi Mellinger stables and with him I started the first high level competitions, first as a junior and then as a young rider.

At 15 years old, on 1998, I debuted in my first professional competition, winning the Swiss Final Team Trophy in Kerzers (SUI) riding El Rico. From this medal on, I kept ranking among the best 10 riders of my category.

The year after, I reached the third place in my first GP in the Rosental (CH) CSI-JY riding Duchesse. I've competed in three editions of the Juniores and Young Rider European Championships and in 2002 I've gained my first victory in GP at Siena (ITA) CSI-B on Good-Life.

After the experience at the Willi Mellinger stables I had the opportunity to work for a while with Pius Schwizer and Eric Luradour, taking part to several stages with Georg Morris too.

On 2006, still studying sport & economics at the university, I moved to Italy in the stables of Ignace Philips, now my husband, and this decision has been a real turning point for my life and my career.

I had good results in several FEI Nation Cups, in April 2010 I took the 14th place at the Final World Cup in Genève and in September 201 I left Turin for the World Championships in Kentucky, and this has been my last competition for that year. My child Noah joined the family in March 2011! With Ignace and his sister Caroline I took over the management of the historical club La Madonnina, transforming it in the actual stables, that are open to all riders-categories, from beginners to highest level with a particular attention for all the horses.

I am Longines ambassador of elegance since 2003 and I've got a multi-year sponsorship with them. Thanks to this partnership I'll be competing on the 2013 edition of the Global Champions Tour.
