“I am delighted to lend my support to the World Equestrian Games because, although I cannot take part as a competitor, I know that I will really enjoy the Games as a spectator. These Games are a superb initiative and I hope that everyone – competitors, spectators and horses – give it their all and have a whale of a time!”

Alexandra Vandernoot has starred in French television in series such as Highlander, Tramontane, Le bleu de l'océan, Carla Rubens and, more recently, A tort ou à raison. Her career has also led her onto the silver screen, where she appeared in Le dîner de cons and Le Placard by Francis Veber, Gangsters by Olivier Marchal, and Charmant Garçon by Patrick Chesnais.

An experienced rider, Alexandra Vandernoot took part in Le grand Trek on Equidia, in which the actress spent a week trekking through South Africa. She also appeared as the director or a riding school in Section de recherches. Her forthcoming role in television film Horizonville will also see her on horseback.

Alexandra Vandernoot started riding aged 10 and got her first pony at age 12: Jules, a small grey Welsh pony, who was succeeded by a larger pony at 15 and her first horse two years later.

She harbours dreams of working cattle on an American ranch and learning how to lasso…
