Rieke Schnieder: “Fürst Fabrice is a perfect student and a heartbreaker. He has a balanced character, is always charming and is incredibly comfort to ride. From the first day he was on my side and always learned quickly. He listens to me and is not distracted by the other horses in the arena. That makes the training very easy for me.”
