The Bienaimés living horses

 

What is your most cherished show? 

They all have a story I love. Because it’s a question of beautiful meetings with new people that I discover. For the Silk Road Show, I discovered China, India, Mongolia and a lot of incredible people who shared with me their universe, their stories. For the Russian show , I met a sculptress in St Petersburg who gave me the opportunity to visite the Académie des Beaux Arts of Catherine the Great. We visited a lot of places. For the last show, Kavallisté,  it was about a island named, Corsica with fantastic singers specialized in Polyphonies. The idea was to share this beautiful culture.

 

“It’s the small achievements that you must pay attention to in order to realize how generous and nice the horses are. When you spend time with them; you love them.”

 

How did you prepare for the latest show? 

My sister is now in charge of the Christmas Show. Most of the time she invented the story for the horse and the riders rather like an haute couture show. But this year, she had the inspiration to interpret a new ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

 

Do you have a favourite horse? 

I have more than one. You know, in a show, the horse is a real partner and we must create a beautiful complicity. It’s takes time, but each horse has a personality and you must play with it. Vega is afraid of everything, for exemple, but it’s an incredibly brillant horse who gives me everything when he is alone in the ring in confidence with me. Amistoso is new, nearly 6 years old and begins a new life in the show. I love it, because I must transmit to him the pleasure of the stage. He was a little bit anxious with the ovations of the audience but now he’s very cool.

If you didn’t train and perform with horses – what would you be doing? 

Ahhhh, maybe theater, I would have love to do that. But I love training horses and trying to do horse theater… At this moment, I’m very interested in sophrologie and I think I can find a special approach for horses and sophrologie  and share this.  *****
