    We (two adults and one 14 year old) have just come back from our second week with Michel and his very welcoming family. And of course the fantastic horses, some of which we have fallen in love with.
    Our first week was the flexible riding programme and we were impressed with the varied riding in the area. The opportunity to ride independently or in front of the group is so unusual and has given us all a wonderful sense of freedom and confidence.
    On our second visit we decided to do the adapted jumping programme. Unlike previous jumping courses we have taken, this one taught us how to keep our horse in balance at all times. The explanations of how and why each of our leg, hand or body movements changed the way the horse responded and then how that affected its position and our control of the horse was just incredible. We were encouraged to practice skills learned in the arena out on the trail and as a consequence our riding skills advanced greatly.
    Michel’s kindness to each of us as well as his horses is heart-warming. He also has a very good sense of humour which has endeared the youngest in our group to him in particular.
    Every horse that we rode was perfectly matched to us. Each was fun to ride but also safe and very well-schooled. It really was a privilege to ride them.
    Michel’s enthusiasm and his pleasure in seeing us develop was infectious. We will be back very soon for more!

    Merci à Michel et Anette pour une semaine inoubliable!!
    Vous nous avez accueillies avec une grande gentillesse et générosité.
    Le programme a été “sur mesure” dans le sens ou nous étions 2 cavalières et avons ainsi pu mixer cours et extérieur, selon nos souhaits.
    L’hébergement très confortable et le choix des restaurants s’est avéré intéressant car nous avons pu tester diverses cuisines durant la semaine.
    Enfin que dire des chevaux.. magnifiques, très bien éduqués, les photos pros prises par Frank lors des sorties en extérieur (forêt, plage, mimizan) sont là pour nous rappeler tous ces beaux moments 🙂
    Merci pour ces moments de bonheur.
