Ask bernardmontiel: What is your link with horses, and how did it begun?
I have always been fascinated by the elegance, beauty, and strenght of horses. When I was a kid, I had the chance to see horses in front of my parent's house, they were calm but hardly approachable, and worrying because of their heigh! ... Until I brought carrots! I was 8 years old for my first contact, after a justified distrust, they were welcoming and probably with interest ; then the horses recognized me and I felt flattered, proud, understanding how sensitive and intelligent they were.

Later, I really started to ride ; in Tunisia on the beach wass my first experience, then in an equestrian center near Bordeaux, France, in my city. It allowed me to have a better position, and to take pleasure when riding these elegant animals. Without fearing their strenght, I was looking for osmosis, relation with the animal, complicity, growing affection.
