HAGEN, Germany, April 13, 2017–Emile Faurie, a rider on Britain’s 2011 European Championship gold medal  team and at two Olympics, has become training supervisor and sales manager for Ullrich Kasselmann. He has resigned as Finland’s team trainer.

Emile, 53 years old and based in Oxfordshire, England, represented Britain at the 1992 Barcelona and 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, three World Equestrian Games and six European Championships.

“I will be dividing my time between the U.K. and Germany and will be riding a number of horses at Hof Kasselmann as well as supervise the training of the youngsters and FEI level horses,” he said. “I will also be assisting François Kasselmann, Hartmut Lammers and Stephan Plüm with the sales of the horses.”

Emile is currently competing Hof Kasselmann’s Weekend Fun (Welt Hit II x Rubinstein) at international Grand Prix.

He said that though he resigned as Finnish team trainer, he will continue to work with several of Finland’s Grand Prix riders.

At the beginning of his professional dressage career in the 1980s Emile worked for Performance Sales International helping to back and prepare youngsters for auction.

He succeeds Ulf Möller who resigned to work with Denmark’s Andreas Helgstrand to set up a horse sales operation in Wellington, Florida.
