Backworth Stud welcomed the extended De Clerck and Bouckaert families to a luncheon this past weekend, where we all able to share our mutual interest in ‘the horses’, but across a range of disciplines.
Interestingly, Carl Bouckaert competed in the 2012 London Olympics in individual eventing as a member of the Belgian Equestrian Three Day Eventing Team. Michael and Nathalie Pollard, both international event riders and profiled equestrian personalities, own Chatsworth Stud and Pollard Eventing in Georgia, USA. Jan and Martine De Clerck are involved in Lippizaner Stallions and Carriage Driving in Belgium.
An enjoyable July Midlands day was had by all!
