One Year Already!!
idea had been planted for a while in the minds of Jean d'Orgeix,
Michel Henriquet and Christian Carde when they founded - less than
a year ago - Allege-Ideal.
It had to become a reality and that was achieved with great enthusiasm
since the support this initiative received was fabulous.
Honored by the patronage of Maurice Druon and a prestigious honorary
committee, the association is proud to include today nearly 200
members, spread over 16 countries.
to gather under the banner of lightness riders from the four corners
of the world and, from all the equestrian disciplines was the challenge
to take up:
Allege-Ideal met it!
They are amateur riders, competitors, judges, breeders, equestrian
arts enthusiasts, trainers, leaders
. The cosmopolitan and
eclectic nature of the association contributes to its wealth and
this first year, the activities of Allege-Ideal were essentially
based on communication: representing the association in meetings
and interactions with major equestrian organizations, participating
to a variety of conferences and debates (in France and other countries),
publishing the first issue of the association's newsletter, organizing
the "Video consulting" service and creating a web site:
2003, we will expand our activities through organizing conferences,
sensitivity meetings in equestrian centers, to benefit riders and
instructors as well. We will very shortly provide a list of organizations
and interlocutors - in France and in other countries - you will
be able to contact on our behalf to establish all the practical
and useful connections with Allege-Ideal.
We will continue to conduct clinics and participate actively to
all the national and international events related to our objectives.
With the official organizations we will pursue vigorously and with
conviction our efforts aimed at avoiding that Dressage competition
falls into the traps strung by the temptation to obtain early results
and by the neglect of the rules.
We rely also on you to continue to keep the forum of our site alive
with your diverse, interesting, positive and constructive interventions.
The numerous comments exchanged this year confirm the idea that
lightness is an essential subject.
to be heard, we must be many!
to all those who discover our effort and who know that lightness
is not just a simple technical notion but also an equestrian philosophy
that consists into developing the physical and mental ability of
the horse in a brilliant, harmonious and performing equitation,
whatever is the discipline practiced, we say:
2003 be for all filled with equestrian joys through
