PRINCIPLES & VALUES
Passions usually emerge early, and continue to develop through life. My passion for horses have been a huge part of my life and is shown through the term L' equitation, for me this is the only way to treat the horse with feeling and respect, this means to gymnasticise the horse using sensibly structured exercises in such a way that it develops the horse without suffering any harm. The principles makes it possible to learn something with every rider, every horse and from any starting point.
