What are the main differences in coaching whilst training in England or France for showjumping?
Hi Juliette,
I’m planning on going to Pau, hopefully in June
Where are you planning on going in France?
Having trained in England but spoken to trainers in France and I’m planning on going next year, I find trainers in England want a deeper seat between jumps, while French trainers want you to have more of a lighter seat, and where you position your legs when jumping varies as well, but other than that it’s like going to different coaches in any countries, everyone’s methods and styles vary, it’s finding someone that suits you
