Cedric Triolet

With more than 20 years of experience as a trainer, the Fédération Equestre Internationale instructor Cedric Triolet share his coaching techniques across the world. Cédric trained tens of riders in order to bring them to the highest level, from beginners to Olympic athletes. He teaches method and pshychology to his students, to lead them to handle their training as well as their stress.


- The natural feeling of the rider
- Good natural balance
- Eye for the distances
- Dedication
- Time on the saddle
- Quantity of different horses to ride everyday

All those things can be worked on and get better but when a rider hv all those qualities already, you know he will get far for sure and he will get there faster than the rider who does'nt have those natural feelings but who is dedicate enough to learn the tricks to get them by working on it.

Thank your for your question,


Hello Maddie,

Yes I did and what helped a lot was to work a lot on walk and trot to extend their movement, a lot of forward walk without letting them trot and same at trot without letting canter, making them opening and using more their back legs pushing in impulsion help them to respond better and easier to the legs, and then at canter, also at canter, put 2 poles on the ground at 20.5 m and make him do 5 strides, keep doing it until he does the 5 strides easily between those 2 poles


Your welcome :)

Hi again Mia,

Then that's directly with your federation as only the grand prix is according points to enter, so it's up to your federation and how they will chose who participate, you need to check with them as a normal show 🙂


Hi Mia,

Depend on what category your going to enter, for the big tour you need the points, for smaller tour it's up to your federation , What high will you jump? I will be in Florida giving clinic all june :) maybe see you around there !


Hi Emily,

Well I was living in South America in that time 13 years ago, and I was training the Bolivian team when the FEI decided to start this coaching system method and did the pilot course in Bolivia as it's a small country with a small federation, just when I was there.

So the Irish olimpic teainer at that time Gerry Mullins, came to give the course to the Bolivien trainers and I took it also and he immediatly asked me after the course if I were interested in becoming a tutor to give that course in all South America as I speak fluid Spanish, of course I said yes so the FEI formed me and I started there and did it for 5 years in South America and then FEI started sending me worldwide as I speak fluid French, English and Spanish, so I spend my years between countries and clinic for riders as personal clinics and for coaches as FEI clinics.

Hi Bella,

First depend on the level your looking to move up to, then the background of the coach in training the level you need and what method he uses vs what method your confortable with or if you also want to swich method.
If you explain me why you want to change and your level, I can be a bit more precise on my answer 🙂


Hi Gabrielle
Do you have an indoor home or in a stable close from you ? Because the best thing you can do is to first get him lose in a indoor for as long as you can with some food and water in it so he can relax and see that there is no danger in it for a week, and then starting working flat and then poles on the ground in it , once all those steps (who will take around a month) are complete, you can start jumping small and grow progressively and he should be fine if he only refuse when indoor.


Hello Catherine,

You know, a horse have to respect you on the ground as much as on top of them, by instinct a horse is either a leader or a follower, when they are followers it's easy to deal with them as they won't challenge you, but when they have leader character, you need to prove them that you are the leader so they can accept to follow you, those attitudes he have with you is a proof of he's challenging you, as much as I understand that you don't want to be ruff with him, you do need to be strong enough so he stops challenging you.

What I generally do with horses like that on the ground is to have a dressage whip on my hand and move it toward them when they come to me without hitting them, that's generally good enough to keep them away from pushing me and make them respect me and my space.


Hello Mia,

Unfortunatly that the common default of selle francais horses, very brave, good heart but strong on the mouth.
I'm use to deal with them but each need different bits depending how they pull you, if he pulls you down I would recommend a gag or a pessoa to have a up effect on the horse's head but what is mostly important with them is to not give a fix contact and use all the time half halt and work a lot lot lot in transitions on poles on the ground.

That works 99% of the times, the problem with those strong mouth horses is that we have tendancy to pull all the time and that just makes it worst. But if you work on half halt all the time (can be strong half halt but not more than 2-3 second each ) we don't give a fix contact to the horse so he can't use our pulling to pull back on our hands contact.
