AT THIS POINT WE WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR PARTNERS TO THANK ANYONE VERY MUCH FOR THEIR SUPPORT ! THANK YOU, MERCI & DANKE !
ALIZÉE FROMENT - INSTAGRAM.COM/ALIZEEFROMENT
As a two-year-old Alizée Froment started her equestrian educational journey with Shetland ponies. As a young rider, she discovered dressage and rode successfully in the pony division up to the highest classes. Since 2006 she has been competing internationally up to Grand Prix, her first start in this level being with her incredible stallion, Mistral du Coussoul.
Trust and harmony when riding are the most important factors for the 1987 born horse fanatic. She has become famous for riding the Grand Prix movements with a neck rope instead of a snaffle or double bridle. “when I work with the neck rope I have all the same expectations as with a bit or bridle. The horse should be in self-carriage with a relaxed and supple back. Controlling a horse doesn’t just come from the rider’s hands and the horse’s mouth but from the seat, the voice, the stomach and back muscles of the rider.”
ANNE-GAËLLE BERTHO - ANNEGAELLEBERTHO.COM
Anne-Gaëlle fell into horses by chance at the age of 15. Her best friend had just had a horse and allowed her to discover what would become her whole life...
In order to be able to accompany her best friend on a walk, Anne-Gaëlle decided to buy herself a mare too: Praline.
Unfortunately, the latter was deceived and declared condemned by veterinarians and farriers. Through love and patience, Praline laminitis gradually improved until it was completely cured. During her recovery, Anne-Gaëlle could not ride Praline, so they walked side by side, gradually discovering the work in freedom.
In 2013, they participated in a show competition and won. This competition allowed Anne-Gaëlle to save another slaughterhouse mare: Albakane.
5 years later, several other horses saved, hundreds of shows to her credit, Anne-Gaëlle shares with us her love for her horses during her shows across Europe.
LOUISE GIRARD - INSTAGRAM.COM/BVLHORSETRAINING
Louise has been around horses since she was very young and has been riding since she was 5 years old. She has been trained in both classical and western riding and continues to practice both every day in order to maintain this bidisciplinarity.
It was at the age of 13 that she decided to offer her help to owners who were having difficulties with their horses. After several successes, the demand for her support from horseowners grew, which allowed her to gain experience with a large number of horses, with various problems, from the aggressive stallion, to the untrained foal.
In 2019, Louise created Bvl Horse Training, an owner's stable and rehabilitation centre for horses.
In parallel with the so-called "difficult" horses, Louise prepares young horses for dressage and jumping.
MARINE VALOT - MARINE-VALOT.FR
Marine Valot est cavalière de Grand Prix et enseignante indépendante spécialisée dans la discipline du dressage, titulaire du BPJEPS mention équitation.
Marine Valot propose des stages, des cours particuliers et da la pension avec un travail à la carte au Haras National de Cluny (71). De formation très classique et pédagogue avec le soutien de son entraîneur Georges FIZET, elle a découvert le plaisir complice du dressage avec sa jument Quérol.
En 2008 Quérol était une petite sauvageonne de 3 ans 1⁄2 qui ne se laissait pas s’approcher au pré. Avec un seau de pommes et de carottes Marine allait lui rendre visite plusieurs fois par jour pour essayer de l’apprivoiser... Il était impossible de lui mettre un licol et lorsque qu’il s’agissait de la rentrer au box, elle rejoignait très vite sa mère en liberté...
« A 18 ans, sans expérience utile, j’ai tout appris avec elle; à force de douceur, de patience et de persévérance, nous avons fini par nous connaitre et nous faire confiance. Nous avons évolué et appris ensemble du débourrage jusqu’au Grand Prix. »

ASTON, LE TAUREAU - FACEBOOK.COM/ASTONLETAUREAU/
When Sabine Rouas suddenly loses the horse of her childhood, the taste and desire to ride also disappears. That's when she meets 309, a Simmental cow with whom she develops a special bond. This is the beginning of an incredible adventure. After a year and a half of working in animal communication with 309, in April 2013 she gives birth to a bull calf. Moving surprise, the little Aston spontaneously lets himself be approached, cuddled, caressed, sensitive to Sabine's voice that he has so often heard in his mother's womb.
Demonstrating an intelligence and sensitivity out of the ordinary, Aston develops over the months amazing abilities that allow Sabine to ride him. With him she now achieves everything that can be done with a horse: working on foot or mounted, aerobatics, jumping - a feat unique in the world. In freedom or on her back she performs many classic dressage tricks with brilliance thanks to daily training and a remarkable complicity.
Sabine travels with her bull as with a horse, to accustom her to van rides and different environments. Everywhere they work and perfect themselves, in collaboration with other professional riders. Together they regularly perform in shows, in France and in several European countries. Aston has become a real celebrity: subject of reports in the written press, star of the net and social networks, he is followed with enthusiasm by his many fans.
MALEA LANDI - INSTAGRAM.COM/MALEA_LANDI
"As for my work with horses, I work with animals from rescues, they all have their own stories. I evolve in a relationship as close as possible to the one they have in their natural state, I work a lot on foot and in freedom on the principle of positive reinforcement I also bring the exercises on a playful aspect in order to make work in a playful context."
