1.30 to 2.15: Enjoy a power point presentation on France's National Riding School of Saumur. The presentation will be in very simple French with an English transcription and this will be followed by a question time of 10 minutes;
2.15 to 2.30: Long Reins demonstration; Pool Training demonstration followed by a question time of 10 minutes;
3.00: Close of festivities.

France's National Riding School organises equestrian teaching throughout France. It provides high-level teaching diplomas and top level competition. Founded on the knowledge and experience of the ecuyers (Riding Masters) of the Cadre Noir who have rediscovered their ancestry at Saumur to ensure the School now develops high-level horse training programmes, teaches riding for sport and expounds the equestrian professions.

All National Riding School teachers are members of the Cadre Noir and each one is an expert in his or her own discipline. Taught by great masters and with a yearning to ensure the continued evolution of riding, the ecuyers of the Cadre Noir influence the French equitation during their public presentations in France and abroad. They have a mission to pass on technical and theoretical knowledge for riders.

They also have to maintain their own training and keep their horses in condition for the Reprise de Manège (Musical Ride) as well as preparation of the horses used in the training of pupils.

French Day at the Paloma Equestrian Centre will appeal to riders of all ages and other trainers interested in learning from the best. Don't miss this rare opportunity
