Having parted ways with Oleksander Onyshchenko in October, Rivetti is pleased to have some horses of the Ukrainian owner and rider returned to his stables. With the help of France’s Rene Tebbel, Forlap DC and Rivetti’s World Equestrian Games mount Vivant have returned to Rivetti for the 2015 season . Since the two Ukrainian riders parted ways in October, Forlap DC has been competing with Germany’s Daniel Deusser in at World Cup events in Oslo (NOR), Helsinki (FIN) and Verona (ITA) while Vivant has been enjoying rest following his performance for Ukraine at the Alltech World Equestrian Games in Normandy.
Speaking with long-standing Belgian news source, Stud for Life, Cassio Rivetti said “I have nothing against Oleksandr Onyshchenko but I am not in agreement with the way we worked together. When Oleksander proposed I return to riding Forlap DC, it influenced my decision greatly because this is really a horse that I have never met in my life.”
Cassio ensures that he will only ride four horses for Onyshchenko; Forlap DC, Vivant and Chataga. The Brazilian-born rider admitted that the fact that Rene Tebbel is part of his team, played a large role in his decision.
It is clear that Rivetti intends to ride for other owners and to make his own, autonomous, business. Welcoming several stallions of Joris and Fleur van Dijck of Belgium, Rivetti has welcomed the 7 year old stallions Ulahop Boy and Ut’Major Brécey.
