Beautiful human and equestrian experiences!

The activity is open for all levels: neophytes will learn to behave in front of horses and understand their language ... and the more experienced can discuss the feeling, school of learning, emotions ....
The time of the snack is a beautiful moment of exchanges and a joy for the taste buds .... the time in the pastures makes it possible to discover a beautiful race of horses and to indulge in pretty gratouilles ...

A great moment of sharing

We went to Laurence last July and keep our passage home, on the occasion of a Taste scratch, a very beautiful memory.

We were first greeted very warmly, then invited to share the famous (and hearty!) Taste with the other participants. The table was sumptuous (special mention for golden cups decorated with rabbits!); everything was tidy, homemade (delicious chocolate cake, financial pistachio and scones to fill with whipped cream!) And gave only one desire: settle there!

Laurence then spoke to us about horses, with a lot of passion, pedagogy and benevolence. Overview of their experience over the centuries, with men, and what it is today, especially in competitions and equestrian centers. It does not feel like it. Laurence explains to us how much this fabulous animal is misunderstood, misunderstood and sometimes, in fact, abused. There is a huge amount of awareness-raising work to be done by Laurence, alongside her Arab Thoroughbred.

Horses precisely: the snack and all this explanatory completed (there is still much to say, and Laurence is exciting!), We will see them. I admit to being surprised: we are asked if we are afraid and we answer no. In the middle of the flock, I surprised myself to be less assured than I would have thought. Yes, nothing to do with the horses that can be caressed well behind a barrier, or those, affable, locked in their box. There, thoroughbreds can give free rein to their emotions and their temperament. So obviously, it's impressive! Laurence is always very vigilant and recommendations are given upstream.

But that will have been a beautiful lesson: because here, there is no human domination: we always favor listening, communication, sharing. The horses are impetuous, full of confidence and life, and that's the point of this meeting! Note: this beautiful walk at the end of the day in the undergrowth with a young mare, detached, just guided to the sound of the voice ...

We thank you, Laurence, for this incredible experience, which gives us much more to think, several weeks later. At our level, we try to talk around us about your wonderful work, we sow some small seeds ...

A big thank you and very nice continuation to you!
