"For our family, the horses were above all friends, and never a means to achieve our ambitions. We had goals, but we never sacrificed our friendship with the horse to achieve them.
Daily training is simply the means of being fair and clear with the horse, to make it friendly, this includes recognizing and accepting that the horse could have reached its limit.
Last but not least, we must never forget that riding is to build a staff and intense relationship with the horse that should not only be built through the saddle, but really take care of him every day."
