Movement and handling the horse


Relationship and movement

Introduction: All our courses aim to create a good relationship between horse and man when they work together.  In the course "Movement and handling the horse", you will learn about the importance of creating a relationship with your horse without changing his natural bearing.  Depending on your objective and your level, we offer a personalised programme in ground or ridden work.  

Aim:  To use the theory of the horse's movement, the ethology and the scientific developments of the CHEVALEDUC programme to understand better the relationship with the horse.   To use the principles of the Blondeau method to improve ridden work.
