At the age of 13, Janika Sprunger’s Bonne Chance CW (Baloubet du Rouet x Cambridge 8) will retire from the sport to focus on breeding. Sprunger and Bonne Chance CW were a part of the Swiss team that took the bronze at the European Championships in Aachen in 2015 and the two also competed at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. The pair won the CSIO5* Grand Prix in Falsterbo in 2015, and have big victories in Vejer de la Frontera, Busto Arsizio, Falsterbo and Geneva to look back at. 

On her official instagram page, Sprunger writes: “THANK YOU BONNIE!!! She made dreams come true and gave us so many incredible moments with winning several GPs up to 5*, jumping numberous of clear rounds for the Swiss Team in Nation Cups and Championchips, carrying me over the Olympic Games in Rio with two clear rounds and winning team bronce at the European Championchip in Aachen! In so short time she has proved so much!! A tiny horse with a heart bigger than i could even imagine a horse could have. She was the most clever horse i ve ever met but yes she had also a lot of attitude ;) !! Thank you for everyone that has crossed her way and looked after her with the love she deserved! I wished she could have stayed longer in the sport but now its time for her second career as a breeding mare @harasdeclarbec! We thank family Megret for the collaboration and hope for many healthy babies from Bonne Chance to be born!!"
