Clémence Faivre “on fire” at the Madrid Horse Week

The most important equestrian event in that country, in which various world-class competitions are held. One of the special guests at this seventh edition of the Madrid Horse Week is the famous Clémence Faivre. Clémence Faivre is a famous equestrian artist of high riding school (Classical Dressage)

Among the competitions to be developed during the Madrid Horse Week are:

  • Jumping World Cup
  • Dressage World Cup
  • The final of the Doma Vaquera Masters Cup.

This amazing Amazon, as women riding and competing are called, revolutionized the equestrian world in 2010.

His fame and success was achieved thanks to being the first woman in the world to perform cowboy-style pirouettes, breaks and change of feet to the street in total freedom.

And from there his fame began to spread …

From that moment his name began to gain more strength within the equine world and outside it.

In each movement Clémence Faivre and his horse Gotan exude elegance, aesthetics and a lot of technique, but above all, an exceptional woman-horse relationship.

Something that is undoubtedly vital in this sport, because if the rider or Amazon does not have a good connection with the animal nothing special happens.

The Madrid Horse Week will take place from November 29 to December 1, 2019.

The show “Fire” by Clémence Faivre will be held on November 30, 2019. We leave you with a video of your show Fire that you can witness at the Madrid Horse Week.

How does a horse manage to perform such movements?

Whether in a race or on an obstacle course, the animal will only do what they ask, without putting the heart. But when there is connection between the horse and its rider, amazing things happen. We have seen this magical effect of the rider-horse connection in the competitions and especially outside them.

In the stable is where more time a rider and a horse spend and can develop a connection. This is because it is the place where the equine lives, where they brush it, clean it, sleep, etc.

So the rider or amazon must start by earning the trust of the animal and once he succeeds then the rest is history.

As it happens to Clémence Faivre who, since the beginning that path as Amazon, is pursued by success.

Thanks to her magical connection, her faithful horses support her in every act and together they are a spectacle.

Who is Clémence Faivre

Clémence Faivre was born in France, in 1981. She grew up in Gouvieux, north of Paris.

At age 12 he began his equine adventure, after receiving a horse as a gift. His father is the one who gives it to him perhaps as an oracle of what his future would be.

Without knowing it, his father was marking the direction of the life of little Clémence.

This young woman is also passionate about cinema and therefore, before being a professional Amazon, she was an actress.

He enrolls in Cours Florent to become an actress. Cours Florent is one of France’s most prestigious drama schools. There are programs for French-speaking students and English-speaking foreigners.

Cours Florent students are prepared to be certified by the most prestigious institutions of French dramatic art.

During these walks he meets Mario Luraschi who forms the Vaulting discipline. There arises a special connection that would later become more than a friendship.

This is how Clémence Faivre begins a career performing the role of stunt double in several films. Thanks to his training in dramatic art and Vaulting he was the ideal person for this role.

For 2007, the young woman travels to the peninsula of Andalusia, in Spain, to improve herself in dressage.
