Ask Cedric Triolet : What tips do you have for someone interested in training and competing as a career?

Hello Emma!

I would say to ride a lot of different horses to learn to deal with all kind of character, patience, (as some horses really can get challenging) and having a great mentor /coach, who can teach you how to manage difficult horses in the correct way, and teach you the kind of exercises who will fit some horses but not others.

That part is really important as some exercises who can be great for some horses, will just get others the opposit result that you were expected.

And as a last advise I would say, find good horses to compete as much and as high as you can and after a while when competing become less exciting, then pass to serious coaching, because it's really difficult to coach and compete at top level at the same time! ;)
