Constance Menard et Lianca (FRA)

Eyes truly are amber!
What an amazing story! Lianca is a large-headed Dutch Harness mare, former circus horse, and a late-in-life Grand Prix dressage horse who completed successfully against horses more conformationally suited to the job. She also has "amazing" amber eyes -- read about her in this article in, but more importantly watch the footage -- she is the perfect mare to perform to Carmen. 

She retired several years ago, and her rider Constance was terribly injured in an accident but came back to ride. I would love to read the full story of this pair some day...

  1. Wow, that was great! She looks so relaxed throughout, and I haven't seen many horses looking like that at grand prix lately.
