Luc Château

  • 70 - Viens du Mont


It will be a first Badminton for French rider Luc Chateau (39) who is based in Cour-Cheverny (70K east of Tours). Luc has two entries; Viens Du Mont with who he was 9th at Pau 5* last year and Troubadour Camphoux with who he was 4th in the 5*L at Luhmuhlen in 2021. The pair competed as an individual (12th) in the 2021 European championship. They completed their first 5* at Pau in 2020.

Since 2016 Luc and his wife Caroline, a graduate instructor from the national school at Saumur, have run the riding club and school, Haras des Chateaux in Cour-Cheverny where they also breed horses.

The couple has two young children aged four and seven.

Troubadour Camphoux is a 16-year-old French-bred Selle Francais. He is by Idem de B’Neville out of an Anglo-Arab mare by Veganum. He was originally produced by Didier Dhennin with who he won the CCI2* at Jardy. Luc acquired the ride in 2017. The pair completed their first 5* at Pau in 2020.

Viens Du Mont is a 14-year-old Selle Francais gelding. He is by the international jumping stallion Norway de la Lande out of a mare by the French thoroughbred Kings Road who sired many event horses – including the four-star mare Erbium who became a successful broodmare for the Preci-Spark stud. He has been produced by Luc and the pair successfully completed their first 5* together at Pau in 2022 (9th).
