It was mid-January when the top horses from Quinoa Stables were moved from Irish rider Cameron Hanley to Pius Schwizer. Since then ‘Caretina de Joter’, ‘Living The Dream’, ‘Amira’, ‘Dundee vd Dwerse Hagen’ and ‘Newton du Haut Bois’ have developed marvellously under the saddle of Pius Schwizer.
A fact that resulted in numerous top results. What seemed to be a great chance for everybody involved came to an abrupt end today: The horses were taken away from Oensingen. Owner Eleonore Paschoud stated the pressure and the duties that came along with the huge success were too much for her.
‘Caretina de Joter’ and ‘Living The Dream’ will join the stables of the Dutch show-jumping giant Jan Tops: ‘Caretina de Joter’ will be ridden by his wife Edwina Tops Alexander, and for ‘Living The Dream’ there is still a solution to be found. The further three horses will be ridden by young Swiss rider Morgane Dassio who has been supported by Paschoud for several years.The departure of these sport is a bitter loss for Pius Schwizer.
Pius said ‘I very much regret this. But what can I do, I have to respect the owner’s decision. My whole season planning was concentrated on these horses. Now I have to count on my young prospects and also try to strengthen again my string of horse”.
