Coline Troussier

"Relationship with horses is based on respect and trust, each horse has to be taken differently”. This care that Caroline Troussier takes on the singularity of each horse allows her to have the trust of many riders. Firstly horse guard, she was then passionate about show jumping universe and groom job. She formed herself following riders in competitions and learning near experienced grooms. Now she treads on the most beautiful international riding tracks with high-level riders.

Hello Rebecca,

It depends on the stables and on what the rider is looking for. Some people have a home rider, and others are looking only for someone who can manage all the cares without riding. Usually a groom doesn’t have to ride, but he manages the longing, paddock and walking. In every case, to be a groom, you have to have at least a galop7 level.

Hello Tessy,

In the USA a groom doesn’t have many horses, the riders are really respectful, the rhythm isn’t as high as here, it can attract some European grooms. I had only experiences in Europe but it’s what I’ve heard from the US system.

Hello Amy,

When it is warm and that the horse is sweating a lot, you have to give some electrolytes, it will help him to rehydrate himself and to recover. You can put it in powder in the food, or with a syringe in the mouth or as a liquid in the food or in the water (Twidyl, Equistro, Ravene, Cavalor).
o For health, especially in competition over several days, we use RedCell (for energy) or RedPlex (which gives vitamins but without boosting them).
o For horses who are easily engorging and to help eliminating medications, there is Equistro Elimination.
o To keep the horses in a good health (muscles, general condition and joints) we can give Twidyl Competition.
o For travels and stress in competition for horses who have particular transit, we can give coal or Flore Process.
o For the nervosity and stress, I use Or Stress from Or Vet.
o For the ulcers and transit problems, There is Gastri Calm or Gastro Gard.
o (And treats!!)

Hello Kareen,

When new, be sure to apply oil and let it dry before the first use. The most important is to have a good soap, I use the spray ‘Belvoir Tack Cleaner’, and when the leather is a bit damaged or if it went out in the rain be sure to apply some cream or grease.

Hello Lauren,

About the back, I massage the muscles before with Equistro Massage, and after with Tendonil on the most sensitive parts. You can also buy a massing rug! The Horseware Sportz Vibes is of really good quality compared to the price.
o About the legs, I change the product applied every day, I begin with white water or Tendonil, I reverse the next day and the last day I put clay.

Hello David,

To their general health, their eyes, their shape, and their legs (engorgement, shock, blemishes).

Hello Tessy,

I don’t know that much about these products, I think that it is useful especially when it is related to temperature checking, to see if we have to put on rugs or to avoid heat strokes.

Hello Melinda,

You can clip the horse 3 days before, make a shampoo when the weather allows it, you can do the mane and plate the day before if the show will start off early in the morning.

Hello Rebecca,

I don’t admire one particularly, but all of them, especially in high level. As for riders, I love Bosty, he is really kind and close to his horses, Penelope and Kevin because they work really hard. I also appreciate Luciana for her relation with the horses and her happiness when riding.

Hello Will,

When I travel with the horses, I put on stable boots or wraps and depending on the distance, I also put bell-boots. The horses eat around 2 hours before the travel to avoid colic or other problems. They wear a rug depending on the weather or even just to avoid some wounds (except if it is too hot of course!). I try to be sure that the horses are the most comfortable as possible (hay if needed, the most space possible, clean wood chips). I also bring food, a water bucket and a spare halter and lead just in case.
