French Caen Caen, ambassador for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy :
After several months of auditions searching for a figurehead for the non-sporting programme, the Entertainment Department of the Organising Committee for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy finally found what they were looking for in the shape of a little grey pony full of surprises!
Following a vote among the general public to find a name that matched his new status, French Caen Caen was enthroned during a special ceremony before officially assuming his duties as Games Ambassador. As such, he embarked on a series of appearances at numerous equestrian and cultural events all over Normandy and France: Salon du Cheval de Paris, launch of the So14 project, Foire de Lisieux, Mont Saint Michel, Chinese New Year, Galeries Lafayette in Caen, etc.
His presence has certainly not gone unnoticed in this very horse-themed year!
Every time he appears in public, he debuts a brand new outfit, each one totally exclusive and made-to-measure.
Proud of his growing popularity and always keen to assist the Organising Committee, French Caen Caen will continue making special appearances right up until the Games begin. During the 15 days of festivities, he will take up residence in the Games Village to greet spectators young and old, all of whom will be invited to stroke and take a photo with this four-hoofed ambassador.
