Training Your Horse

One of the most difficult parts of dressage is getting your horse straight and while many people may think they are straight, often when you take them away from the wall, which helps as a straightener, you see them wobble up the arena looking like a rabbit in the head lights. When you can make a three quarter line without your horse falling in, or out, or putting his quarters in or out, and without losing your line, the next step is being able to alter the degree of bend in your horse's neck without losing your line.

A Walk on the Premises

The Pays de la Loire is undoubtedly a region in France which breathes and lives horses, grazing wherever you go. The Loire valley recall many first of the small town of Saumur where the National Riding School is located and where some renowned trainers have their yards. However, a jewel of the very special kind is to be found when you move towards the Atlantic. Not far from the region's capital Nantes, but seemingly in the middle of nowhere is the horses' paradise Haras de Hus, which has opened its impressive stone-walled doors for Eurodressage.
