For Gilles the musical and live accompaniment by a large orchestra are as much a novelty as a challenge and require extra preparations on his part. Who knows, he just might succeed to slot in a small role for the Friesian horse, working together with the enthusiastic FRIESIAN PROMS team. But because of the very few rehearsals possible prior to FRIESIAN PROMS this is as yet not guaranteed.
Trainer of show horses, creator and producer of his own shows. While working with horses Gilles Fortier transforms the wildest fantasies into shows.
Gilles starting riding at the age of six and was known for his daring attitude. This daredevilry stood him in good stead in his later job of stunt man which opened up opportunities for him to take part in various historical- and cinematic productions. In 1987 he won the Tournament of Chivalry near La Villette. The Prize being? A Friesian horse!
With time he has veered his tempestuous life style away to smoother waters by using his knowledge and gifts to turn his hobby into a professional career. Nowadays he draws on his own creativity to develop ideas into wonderful and often spectacular horse shows that take him abroad to many countries.
