A year ago Brianne Goutal's Nice de Prissey (Rosire x Amarpour) suffered an injury, and now the American rider is getting the help of Philippe Le Jeune to get the horse back competing.

"I have had Nice de Prissey for 6-7 months now, and have slowly build him up after his injury. I have ridden him a lot in the North Sea just like I have always done with my horses, and it is fantastic for the tendons, ligaments and muscles. A while ago we did our first smaller show together and despite him not showing for a year he jumped fantastic and last week he jumped a 1,40 Grand Prix very good," Philippe Le Jeune says.

The horse is not for Le Jeune to keep though: "I will get him back to the higher level, and then the Goutal-family will decide if they bring him back to the US or if they leave him in Europe for Brianne to compete in Europe with. I also had a younger mare from the family that I brought back after an injury, and she is fully back competing now. I'm very happy to be able to work with this nice family and Nice de Prissey is just such a fantastic horse, he is fantastic to ride, has a fantastic mentality and if he stays sound Brianne can do some great things with him. It is a good feeling to help horses after an injury and we are happy to welcome more horses that is in need of the sea to get them back into full fitness," Le Jeune ends off.

Brianne Goutal has been competing very successfully up to CSI5* level with Nice de Prissey until he got injured in June last year.
