Young and Ambitious: European Champion Clémentine Lux (13) Continues Her Winning Streak at the Brussels Stephex Masters

“My goal this week? Secure a top 10 position every day!”

Today, two CSI1* competitions were on the schedule, serving as the perfect showcase for young and upcoming riders among other talents. One of them immediately stood out. The mere 13-year-old Clémentine Lux claimed victory in the 1.15m class (powered by Annick Van De Weghe) and secured a respectable 4th place in the subsequent class (1.25m – powered by SX Exclusive Breeding Collection). The competition should take note: she has her sights set on the title of best CSI1* rider. It’s high time we got to know her better!

Clémentine: “Last week, I won the Belgian Cup for pony riders. And now this. It’s incredible!” Clémentine is a hard worker. This earned her a gold medal at both the European and Belgian Children’s championships. Clémentine: “I currently ride both horses and ponies, and I must admit, I still prefer ponies. It’s more exciting as the jumps are proportionally higher and I can ride at a faster pace.” Her proud mother, Françoise Lejeune, added: “From a young age, I recognized that Clémentine was born for this sport. She always wanted to ride faster, jump higher, and learn more. That’s why we fully support her passion, and she’s homeschooled. In the past, she sometimes missed the win because she overthought things. But now, with guidance from a mental coach, she competes to win. Later this week, the jumps will be even higher. But that’s what she loves. We definitely want to take home that tack box awarded to the most consistent rider in the CSI1*.”

It’s no surprise that Clémentine is eyeing a professional riding career. Clémentine: “The next step might be an internship at a stable in the UK or Ireland. Irish pony riders are doing incredibly well, and I’m eager to become fluent in English. This is crucial for an international career. But for now, my focus is on the Brussels Stephex Masters. Every day, I aim to secure a top 10 position. Nothing less will do!”
