European Team Champion

After the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Clooney suffered a grazing accident and broke his shoulder. Together we all feared for his life. Clooney showed once again that he is an exceptional horse and managed the rehabilitation to enjoy a beautiful life in the fields in Normandy.

I was a member of the Swiss European Champion team with Leone Jei and we won the silver medal in the individual competition.

What a success!

I was able to start 2020 as world number 1. This was a huge satisfaction for me and the entire Team Fuchs.

The rest of the year turned out differently than expected, as the pandemic paralyzed us. I was able to enjoy a lot of time with family and friends and reset my priorities.

European Champion

After finishing second in the World Cup final in Gothenburg at the beginning of the year, I won the gold medal at the European Championships in Rotterdam six months later.

Vice World Champion

I was the first Swiss show jumper in history to win a medal at the World Championships with my superstar Clooney. It was an extremely exhausting and emotional championship. The success was all the better because we were able to share the joy with Steve Guerdat as the bronze medal winner.

Here comes Clooney

Clooney came to my stable in 2014 as a 7-year-old youngster. He quickly showed what an exceptional horse he is and went on to become the most successful horse in Swiss show jumping history.

How it all began

As I grew up in an equestrian family, I was always in contact with horses. With my first pony, Cleopatra, I was able to make my first jumps and set myself the goal of becoming a great rider.
