Two Top Horses of Switzerland’s Martin Fuchs Change Hands
Two top mounts of Swiss rider Martin Fuchs have been sold to new homes this week.
The 12-year-old Selle Francis gelding Picsou du Chene (Le Tot De Semilly x Caloubet Du Bois) was sold to Francois Leiser, to be ridden by Eva Ursin of Norway.
And the promising 8-year-old Zangersheide gelding Cynar VA (Clarimo x Alcatraz) was sold to the stable of Jan Tops. It is not yet known who among the group of riders Tops coaches will become the horse’s new rider. A special horse of championship caliber, Fuchs last competed Cynar (pictured above at LGCT Chantilly 2015) to a strong finish in a five star class at the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Final CSIO5* at Barcelona, which was their first five-star grand prix together.
“Cynar is one of the best horses I have ever ridden. When he came to us as a six year old, it was already clear that he was something special.”
“It was a difficult decision to sell Cynar, but I am convinced that he is on his way to being a championship horse,” said Fuchs. “Cynar is one of the best horses I have ever ridden. When he came to us as a six year old, it was already clear that he was something special. I wish him the best of luck and hope to see him soon in top tournaments!”
Fuchs most recently won the CSI4* Six Bar with Picsou du Chene at St. Moritz, Switzerland, and campaigned the mare this year in several CSIO5* FEI Nations Cup Super League competitions.
“Piscou will be a good teacher for Eva and will help her realize her goals,” Fuchs added. “He has a great character, and is an absolute favorite in our barn. We will not soon forget him and we wish the new couple all the best for the coming years.”
