Endurance World Lilou Tomas-Arnaud.02 Happy.When did you start riding?

I started riding very young.
I used to ride in a riding school and participated in some jumping competitions.
At the same time, I started doing Endurance. I did my first 20 km race when I was 8 years old and I had to wait until I was 11 to do my first 40 km!
Did my first race without speed limit when I was 14.

Does riding run in the family of Lilou Tomas-Arnaud?

Yes. This is my father’s job and passion; his name is Philippe Tomas. He is running the Tomas’ Team Endurance.
He is trainer and rider of Endurance horses. I’m lucky because he has good horses, nice facilities, and a good team.
Thanks to him I had these good horses which helped me to be competitive very quickly.

Why horses?

I was born with horses around me. I live next to them. I love them.

Why endurance?

My family is in endurance. So, it was naturally and easy for me.

Endurance World Lilou Tomas-Arnaud.02 Grooming.Own horses or ride for somebody else?

All the horses are owned by my dad.  Four of them are dedicated to me.
These horses helped me to get a high level: Scherazade Larzac, Kandjar Ibn Almarkab and Vulcain de Flauzins, Samirha du Mas.
I get along well with them and they give me everything during the races!

Do you train horses?

Yes, but I can’t do the full week training as I am high school student.  My dad and his team follow up the trainings while I can focus on my studies.

What else do you enjoy?

I love most sports, I also play tennis.
I like going on holidays with my family and going out with my friends.
I enjoy travelling, discovering new countries and meeting people.
Yet endurance is very interesting as we travel a lot and meet lots of people from all over the world.
