Horse Dressage competition

Last Sunday My oldest grandaughter Julie (  Duchess ‘s daughter ) was engaged in a competition of dressage of horse . 

The goal is to show that the rider has mastered his horse,
You should feel perfect harmony and even complicity between horse and rider
Here is below a short video ( 2 minutes) . You can see she was managing well . She was in a very good rank at the end of the competition.

Dimanche dernier ma petite-fille aînée Julie ( la fille de la Duchesse Carole  ) était engagée dans une compétition hippique de dressage .

Le but est de montrer que le cavalier maîtrise bien sa monture. Vous devez ressentir une parfaite harmonie et même une complicité entre le cheval et la cavalière .

Dans la courte vidéo ci -dessus vous pouvez voir qu’ elle s ‘ en très bien tirée. Elle a terminé dans un bon rang.

Below the supporters . L -> R : Simon, Janine ; Julie , kenza , Carole 


Les supporteurs  de gauche à droite mon petit-fils aîné Simon; Janine , Julie , la jument Kenza et .. Carole .


Before the depart the troop takes her breath and some food .  Les Goldens retrievers look happy to be there


C ‘ était une bonne journée , originale et en famille
It was a good day, original and with family members.
Note ; yesterdat I had posted thts video put at first on facebook for the family.  I could watch this video here on WP but not my readers ! Sorry .  Finally I used of the solution You Tube .  I hope this time all of you see this video.

    Now I understand. Horses are magnificent, intelligent and perceptive creatures. It takes a person of wisdom to be able to understand and respect this beautiful creature. You have a wonderfully talented family.

  9. Congrats to Julie! She did so well! (and Kenza did, too! That is her horse’s name, right?)
    The golden retrievers do look like they are enjoying themselves! Love their smiling faces! 🙂
    HUGS!!! and ❤ to you and Janine! 🙂

    Commented on FB. I think this is so beautiful, horse and rider. 🙂

    Those who do not ride have no idea how difficult and how much practice it takes to execute that pattern so flawlessly. She made it look as easy as sitting in an easy chair, as if the horse was making every move in response to her thought. Bravo!

    • I could not say better , Judy ” it look as easy as sitting in an easy chair, as if the horse was making every move in response to her though” . This is exactly the description of the goal of the exercise .

    Your daughter Julie looks so smart and elegant in her equestrian outfit! And yes, she’s really good rider! The whole family is all out to cheer the elegant rider!

  17. Dressage is such a beautiful sport! Your granddaughter rides very well! You and Janine must be very proud! On Sunday, which is Mother’s Day in the United States, we are going to watch our youngest grandson play LaCrosse. It’s wonderful to be able to enjoy the accomplishments of your grandchildren!

    • Nous avons tous passé un bon moment . Je ne sais pas si Julie a vu cette vidéo . j ‘ ai mis la même vidéo sur facebook mais aussi sur You tube , plus pratique pour mon blog
      Merci pour ton commentaire . je t’embrasse.

  19. Your granddaughter is obviously a most graceful horsewoman, and you are, of course, very proud of her—as any grandparent would be!

  20. julie essex says:

    Well done to Julie on such skill at the competition , you all must be very proud. It finally looks like we are getting some warm weather so that will help your garden

  21. Gill McGrath says:

    HI Michel, Your grand daughter makes it look so easy. Elegant lady and beautiful horse. Thanks for the video ❤ xxx

  22. Cath Singapore Girl says:

    I imagine the horse skipping from one petal to another. How very lovely!
    I showed some of your photos to my students, and they say they would love to live in a place with large open fields. They lament about the concrete jungle they grew up in.

  23. mlbncsga says:

    Mornin Glorie! The video was a pleasure to watch, such grace from Julie and Kenza, they are a perfect match!!! It looked like the weather was a bit on the cool side, I imagine that is good for riding and the retrievers also. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful family with us =)

    p.s. if your weather is clear, tonight should be a good time to watch the eta Aquarid meteor shower. We have Halley’s Comet to thank for this one. ILYM

    Quelle est belle notre amitié
    Elle est pure
    Elle est un lien
    Mon amitié ignore les indifférences
    Elle n’est qu’un charme d’un verbe aimer
    Elle éveille le sens de la bonté
    Elle supporte la charité
    Mon amitié est un charme que du verbe aimer
    Mon amitié est faite de sincérité
    Belle fin de journée et belle fin de semaine
    Bises , Bernard

    I love watching dressage!! When my sister toured Europe several years before she died, she saw the Lippizaner Stallions perform. If and dressage competitions or performances are on TV, I have to watch them. Such grace in both the rider and the horse. Julie has done a wonderful job of training her horse!! Many hours of loving work involved, for sure!! ❤ Nancy and Ken

  30. I agree totally with you Nancy and Ken. Thanks for this comment.

  31. AM says:

    Beaucoup de travail et une très belle présentation. Félicitations à la jeune fille et au cheval et à ses professeurs et supporters! Merci de ce joli partage Michel.
    Amitiés, AM

    Your granddaughter is a lovely, beautiful Lady and an excellent rider! Horse is very beautiful also. I am very excited to find this post of Yours. Photos are great and I especially enjoyed the video. I do love it. I think that we are lucky to have wonderful granddaughters – both of us. My granddaughter has her own mare. She rides nowadays rarely, because after her studies she started her job. Sharing time when young is not easy.

    If You do not mind, Sir, I give here two links presenting how my granddaughter rides.

    Competition failed

    Milla is training Tara

    Have a great day!
