François Lamontagne Named CAVALOR ‘Athlete of the Month’ for December

Ottawa, ON, January 8, 2013 – François Lamontagne of Saint-Eustache, QC, was named the CAVALOR ‘Athlete of the Month’ for December by Jump Canada.

Lamontagne, 29, recently made his Canadian Show Jumping Team debut at CSIO4*-W Buenos Aires, ARG. Riding alongside Ben Asselin, Tamie Phillips and Jenn Serek, Lamontagne was in the anchor position, posting a double clear performance with Undergroud des Hauts Driots to lead the Canadian team to a second place finish.

At the warm-up competition held at San Jorge Village one week earlier, Lamontagne and Underground des Hauts Driots, an eight-year-old Belgian Sport Horse gelding owned by Ferme Lamontagne, won the first class of the show. Out of 48 entries, the pair posted a jump-off time of 36.71 seconds to score victory over Olympian Justo Albarracín of Argentina.

“It was a dream come true to wear the red jacket for Canada,” said Lamontagne. “I felt fortunate to have teammates like Ben, Tamie and Jenn. It was also an excellent opportunity for me to meet our chef d’équipe, Mark Laskin, and to show him what I am capable of.”

Lamontagne added, “Now that I experienced what it is like to ride for Canada, I’m going to work hard every day to earn my place on the team again. Awards that highlight rider achievement are always a bonus. Thank you to Cavalor for their sponsorship.”

As the CAVALOR ‘Athlete of the Month’ for December, Lamontagne receives a gift certificate from title sponsor CAVALOR Inc.
