With Gilles, he talks to you before and after a fence, for this reason you forget the obstacle in front of you and focus on you and your horse.


With Gilles it just a sentence, sometimes only a word, and you solve a problem with your horse.


Gilles, he does not judge you, he encourages you to ride better by developing your skills. He does not focus on your mistakes, just your abilities and the qualities of the horse, so that you evolve together.


Every lesson I have with Gilles a unique experience. They are rich with advice and he knows how to lavish generosity with a wise eye. He really is an outstanding teacher, who has the ability to transmit his precious knowledge me to feel these “magic” sensations when riding!!


Gilles has the ability to adapt to every horse and rider rider so that the pair finds his voice of progression with respect and harmony. A rare pearl …


Respect for the horse and rider, Gilles is listening and progress is visible. Horse and rider progress in confidence and in good humour.


Gilles is a professional coach who knows how to structure his lessons whilst fixing attainable objectives. His advice is always very encouraging which makes it easy for each pupil to understand and progress.


As a young instructor, he supported me and trained for a year and a half giving valuable advice, time and your unlimited investment whether it be on foot, on horseback, hands in frozen water or at 5am to go to a competition.

His experience of horses and the training of riders has taught me so much. Whether you are a new rider or a professional, Gilles will help you gain confidence and be the best.

Gilles has coached me for over 3 years. During this time I have learnt to understand my riding and finally found my rhythm, and feel the movement. I have progressed so much and will really miss his invaluable advice.
