Welcome to the Foundation for the Equestrian Arts

Equitation as an art form, a means of expressing the beauty of the connection between one individual rider and one individual horse, has a long and rich history.  As competition has become the driving force in riding today, riding as an art has begun to disappear. The old way of working is well worth preserving as it connects us both to the brilliance of the individual horse and to the human mind and heart in balance.

The Foundation for the Equestrian Arts was formed to preserve this ancient art. It does so in a variety of ways, including publishing hard to find books on the old way of working, teaching, and providing support for contemporary trainers and their students working in the French classical lineage.

We welcome you as a member in the Foundation, joining students from across the world in preserving this beautiful form of communication between horse and rider.
