HELLOMONACO RECOMMENDS The attention given to horse welfare, un- der the supervision of a competent medical team, is aiding both training and horse- boarding activities. Hap Ô Tempo: The artistic side of riding horses R Founded a few years ago as a children’s horse training center, it currently offers a variety of individual, collective and sum- mer courses with horses and ponies, ad- dressed both to amateurs and profession- als of all ages with a focus on their needs, Equifeel included. The professionalism of the riding instructors (mostly BPJEPS certi- fied) as well as the friendly approach of the president and the welcoming staff (com- posed of mothers in their second jobs) are a plus. iding a horse may represent a real acro- batic challenge, as an expression of artistic talent. In Villeneuve- © Ubik, Herri Baron Loubet region, a cozy horse farming house which offers boarding, and totally reno- vated, is home to the equestrian center Hap Ô Tempo which welcomes, through- out the year, up to 22 horses, with all facili- ties provided. According to the will of its founders, this distinctive riding school, being associat- ed with the FFE since 2012, presents the perfect balance between the best circus art and horseback-riding. On weekends, it often turns into an evocative stage which gathers the best circus acrobats world- wide as part of an intriguing program of events. Thus, this center attracts the atten- tion of amateurs, professionals, perform- ers, teenagers, children and disabled peo- ple in rehab. Weekly professional classes and student summer courses, from baby- riding-ponies to gallop 7 and competition riding (e.g.: FFE, International Concours de Saut, Show Stages, Hunter, Dressage and Handisport) are offered. Therefore, partici- pants can approach the horse world from an unusual point of view, including on the ground, free and classical acrobatic tech- niques (e.g.: Cossack Voltige). AGASC – Centre Équestre de St-Laurent-du-Var: Riding a horse is a serious matter R iding a horse is above all training, es- pecially when you are learning and preparing professionally. The mul- ti-certified Centre Équestre de St.-Lau- rent-du-Var, part of the AGASC sport and culture association, has been offering quali- fied courses addressed to FFE riders and young beginners (from 3 years old up) for more than 30 years.
