Marie Couperie made her debut on a Shetland pony at 4 years old, at Château Bacon. At 8 years old, her grandmother gave her her first competition pony, Artiste, with which she shared her first victories. She then moved on to horse riding and took part notably in the French Junior Championship with Flambeau d’Or. She then began Young Riders international competitions and was crowned champion of Aquitaine in 2006 with Marquis de Curzay. In 2013, she joined the Château Bacon stable with her aunt Virginie Couperie Eiffel and her father, Philippe. The Château Bacon society was founded by her grandmother “Ploplo” and her grandfather Emeric Coupérie, founder of the Jumping World Cup in Bordeaux. She then learnt how to prepare horses for competition. Today Marie is in charge of the “Paris Eiffel” Team competition in addition to being a professional horse rider and coach.
