Centre d'équitation Jacques Robidas

At Centre d’equitation Jacques Robidas, a respect for horses is first and foremost. Our entire philosophy is to co-operate rather than dominate. We teach riders to communicate with their mounts, controlling the animals with their bodies. Horses are very sensitive to posture and breathing and the signals riders convey. By learning how to control the way they sit and how they breathe, riders can better communicate with their mounts. It comes as a surprise to learn that this unique approach helps them to become more skilled in handling a horse and even increases their passion for this astonishing animal.
