Dressprod reported that French Children team horse Don Amour de Hus has moved on to a new rider, French pony rider Ninon Dupuy Pellardy.

Don Amour de Hus is a 15-year old Oldenburg gelding by Don Primero out of Rumira (by Rohdiamant). He is bred by Harli Seifert. 

Medium Tour

Under owner Alizee Roussel, Don Amour made his internetional show debut at the 2021 CDI Vierzon. A month later he competed at the 2012 World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden, where he placed 17th in the consolation finals. They were also fourth at the 2012 French Young Horse Championships.

Roussel and Don Amour made their international show debut two years later in 2014 in Biarritz and moved up to medium tour level in 2015. Nationally he was shown at Grand Prix level, but internationally he did not move above medium tour. Their last CDI was in Le Mans in 2017.

Children with Fleur Weijkamp

Dutch born French rider Fleur Weijkamp received the ride on Don Amour de Hus in 2020 and won the French children championship that year. 

After a break of four years from the CDI ring, Don Amour de Hus returned to the big arena in 2021 in Le Mans and went on to represent France at the 2021 European Children Championships in Oliva Nova, Spain, where they were 26th in the team test. 

Schoolmaster for Ninon Dupuy Pellardy

Dressprod reported that Don Amour de Hus has now moved on as a schoolmaster for French pony rider Ninon Dupuy Pellardy. 

The new duo has already made its show debut last week at the regional show in Saint Rémy de Provence, where Ninon also rode her sister Anna's 2021 European Pony Championship ride Champony (by Champion de Luxe x Dein Freund).
