On Monday September 30th, Cherry Elvin kindly organised a morning for Members (and friends) to visit Emile Faurie’s Yard.
It was an action packed morning with Emile giving us the opportunity to observe the training of six different horses ranging for a lovely 3 year old to Topolino, his GP horse.
The first horse was a 3 year old that he bought as a foal and had been backed approximately 8 weeks. It was great to see the confidence that this horse had whilst being handled, lunged and then ridden for a short time.
Emile then rode a six year old – Duke Ellington, in a double bridle and explained how he likes horses to start to work in these from this sort of age. He worked on transitions especially to quicken this horse’s hindlegs and then through some lateral work towards canter pirouettes. Read more Report on visit to Emile Faurie’s Yard
