Our training programmes aim to build and consolidate the way man and horse co-operate when they work together. Whether you are professional, amateur or ride for pleasure, your horse must be educated to learn his future occupation. He must acquire good manners and learn the daily activities of being groomed, loading and unloading and going into starting gates. He must use the three paces when asked to do so.
All our training courses are centred around this aim of co-operation when working with man. Since October 2016 the Ecole Blondeau has been at the forefront of a research programme with the INRA (National Institute for agricultural research) and the Normandy region. Jocelyne Porcher is the director of the programme, known as CHEVALEDUC. The main thrust of the research is on the development of new and effective alternative methods of training young horses in order to maintain the safety of professionals in the world of equitation and to respond to the needs of the animal's well-being whilst at work.
