After a fantastic partnership together with Roger-Yves Bost, Ideal de la Loge has left the French rider. According to grandprix-replay.com Bosty and the owner disagree on the 16 year old stallion’s sport career, which has resulted in the owner moving Ideal de la Loge (Dollard u Murier x Joyau D’Or A) to Olivier Robert.
Bosty’s father, Roger Bost, has confirmed the news to the French website and says that Ideal de la Loge has left their stable. According to his father, Bosty wanted to save the horse and target him for certain shows due to Ideal getting older and taking longer to recover after each competition. Apparently the owner disagreed on this approach. Grandprix-replay.com writes that most of all this is a very emotional loss for Bosty, who has ridden Ideal de La Loge since he was a youngster. Together with Roger-Yves Bost, Ideal de la Loge has won numerous competitions and last year the two ended up on top in the Global Champions Tour Final in Abu Dhabi.
