Pénélope Leprévost's lesson : part 1

penelope leprevost, REF HA15, jumping session, Michel Robert clinic

She rides Pleiade, a mare new to our yard. The goal of the session is to improve the quality of her turns. Penelope tends to keep the horses ‘nose to the outside in the turns, as it enables her to be in a better control of her horses. Michel points out that she will obtain better results if she succeeds in doing the opposite, i.e. bending the horse to the inside of the turn.
Elle monte Pléiade, une jument nouvellement arrivée aux écuries.

L'objectif de la séance est d'améliorer la qualité des tournants. Pénélope a, en effet, tendance à tourner en gardant la tête des chevaux à l'extérieur, cela lui permet de mieux contrôler ses chevaux. Michel lui fait remarquer qu'elle peut obtenir un meilleur résultat si elle parvient à faire l'inverse, c'est-à-dire à incurver son cheval à l'intérieur du tournant.

The session starts by a warm-up in the grass paddock adjoining the yard.

Then, they’re back to the arena, where each of them warms-up the horse on some small cavalettis. Penelope gets to know Pleiade. The rider has very quickly a good feeling about this mare as she finds her easy and full of quality.

Michel rides Nenuphar Jac, which allows him to demonstrate the movements and the attitudes they’re looking for.

The lesson starts with some flat work, then with some cavalettis, and at the end, with a course.

For your safety, you must wear a certified riding hat whatever the exercise you are practising.
