When Claude-Alix Bertrand sets his heart set on something, he goes for it. Whether it’s taking his love for horses and transforming it into a successful career, to developing a magazine dedicated to the luxuries of equestrian life and putting the Haitian polo team on the map, nothing is ever beyond his reach. His dedication in bringing polo to the forefront has led him to serve as a Haitian ambassador for UNESCO, a sector of the United Nations which aims to provide international collaboration through education, science and culture.
Bertrand speaks to The Haitian Times on the passion, skill and luxury that comes with being a professional equestrian.
It seems like being an equestrian as well as having a passion for horses runs in the family. What inspired you to follow in those footsteps?
