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. He really is an outstanding teacher, who has the ability to transmit his precious knowledge me to feel these “magic” sensations when riding!!
