Not an easy task to come up to the level of the previous year, but Olivier kept on fighting in the in- and outdoor season.
Cabrio could still jump about anything, but had a fence down too often, and to be in the top rankings these days, that's one too many.
But in the fall, he became second in the Calgary Nations Cup with 4 + 1 faults after all.
Horse trading was getting more and more important at the Philippaerts Stables, and a lot of new talents and prospects had to be tested, trained and competed in the top level of showjumping.
Many owners were convinced it was a good idea to have the Philippaerts twins on their horses' backs, amongst them another grey stallion, Faustino de Tili.
Other jumpers such as Chamonix H, Early Morning Mist, Cooper v/d Heffinck, Fidele and Qurint brought in the good placing’s.
Horses at Dorperheide switched riders continuously, always looking for the best possible combination with the rider.
Nevertheless we can present a nice list below for Olivier with his best results in international GP classes.
