Last weekend Morgan Barbançon and Black Pearl made their international debut in the Grand Prix in Ornago, Italy. After an eleventh place in the GP, Barbançon won the Freestyle. In the Grand Prix the percentages were not that high yet, they became eleventh with 67,391%. Things went better in the freestyle and the score was 71.025%. There were still errors in the series, but the trotting guards yielded eight. Afterwards, Morgan Barbançon, who started for France, was happy with the result. “She reminds me a lot of her father,” she said afterwards. Morgan achieved great success with the preferent topproducer Painted Black, including participation in World Equestrian Games and the Olympic Games in London. Under Charlotte Fry, the Painted Black daughter Black Pearl started her international career. As a young horse, Black Pearl was trained by Anne and competed by Fry. Through the Danish Charlotte Heering the now thirteen year old mare came into the hands of Morgan Barbançon.
