Three basics of the Blondeau method


Three basics of the Blondeau method

This video shows a thoroughbred filly during her 3rd day of breaking-in who is getting on well with her rider. 
There is no miracle, just 3 basics:   

1/  The horse has a know-how to learn, so use his intelligence, have an educational approach and treat him with care. 
2/  For the horse to understand what he must achieve, there must be consistency in what is asked of him.   
3/  To be consistent when mounted there is one golden rule:  to have good balance in order that movements and gestures are precise.   

When these basics are applied, the well-being of the horse becomes obvious!
