General Interest

Awards and honours In 2014 he became the first French rider to top the FEI ranking in reining. (, 22 Aug 2014)
Other information 2010 WORLD GAMES HEARTBREAK
Although he was ranked number one in France and number eight in the world at the time, he was removed from the French team for the 2010 World Equestrian Games [WEG] in Lexington, KY, United States, after a blood test led selectors to believe his horse was not medically fit to compete. The results were subsequently found to be a false alarm but he was not reinstated into the team as the French Equestrian Federation [FFE] were happy to send three riders instead of the usual four.(, 01 Dec 2010;, 14 Sep 2010)

His great-grandfather served in the French military cavalry, and once met Buffalo Bill [William Frederick Cody] in Paris, France. Franck's father, influenced by his great-grandfather, opened the Montana Ranch in 1969, which was France's first Western equestrian centre. He began importing and training American quarterhorses, and bought Perret his first horse at age nine. (, 18 Mar 2014;, 15 Jul 2014;, 20 Jun 2014)

He produced and starred in a training DVD called Le Reining in 2008. (, 17 Mar 2011)

He owns and runs the Ride For Emotion stables, opened in 2003, where he trains and sells horses. He also coaches riders of all levels. (, 18 Mar 2014;, 15 Jul 2014)
