The Jockey Club : War Dispatch at the ready
On 5 october 2013, 13 youngsters from Kentucky were entrusted to us by Mr Joseph Allen.
War Dispatch was part of this exceptional group.
During his 15 days in Saumur, War Dispatch was broken-in, ridden at the 3 paces and taught to use the starting gates.
This important work prepares these youngsters for their career and allows horse and man to evolve together in a common aim.
Nicolas Blondeau emphasises that breaking-in adds great value to the horse's career: "The Blondeau Method encourages mental and muscular relaxation in the horse which means that it absorbs what it has learnt for life."
The safety of riders and grooms is reinforced by this gentle approach.
" The horse makes himself available to man and uses his instinctive strength to work with ease, whatever the discipline."
War Dispatch left Saumur on 19 October 2013 for Jean-Claude Rouget's stables. War Dispatch,
with his American origins and calm nature has a great chance in the legendary Jockey Club race!
The Ecole Blondeau team wish him well and to continue giving his best!
