Spanish-French dressage rider Morgan Barbançon is back in her home country Switzerland. For eight years Barbançon was based in the Netherlands, where she trained first with Anky van Grunsven and then with Andreas Helgstrand, Ton de Ridder and Alex van Silfhout. Now the 26-year-old wants to spend more time with her family again. She told Eurodressage she had a business plan. The Spanish who attended the 2012 Olympic Games in London with Painted Black wants to advance the dressage sport in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
Since the way to her trainer Alex van Silfhout is too long Barbançon wants to intensify her training with Dorothee Schneider, who already is the trainer of her sister Alexandra.
