Calgary native Ben Asselin is definitely turning heads in the Grand Prix show ring. As of last year, his career highlights include five perfect rounds at the FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championship- landing him individual and team gold, winning the $32,500 Laramide Oil and Gas Grand Prix in the CS12* Rocky Mountain Classic I Show Jumping
Tournament and named Athlete of the Month for August by Cavalor. Oh and he’s only 16! He currently trains at his family’s farm, Attache Stables, with his two mounts, Lolita, a 13-year old Oldenburg mare and Magic Man, a 14-year old Hanoverian gelding. What’s even better than his results are his acts of true horsemanship as he’s always quick to give his horses their credit. I have no doubt an equestrian of his caliber will go far. Good luck to Ben for the 2011 show season!
