Thumbs up Hello from ... France ! ;)

Hello everybody !

My name is Alizé, I live in France and I'm 17 years old.
I don't speak english very well, but I would like improve this (if I make a mistakes, can you correct me please ?).

I ride for 3 years (before, I can't ride because my parents don't have enough money and the were afraid by horses) and I have the "Galop 5" in french (what is this level in England or America ?).
Actually, I train young horses (in french we say "débourrer", but I don't find the word in English).
I practice jumping, dressage and a little cross (we don't have a cross field because it's to expensive :/). Recently, I participate in Derby Cross in Royan (in the summer, we have a CSI***).

I'm here because I would like improve my english, meet english people and find other ways of thinking.

That's it ! If you have questions, don't hesitate, I have to work my english ;)

Welcome Alize! your English is just fine. I assume you mean you want to meet "English speaking" people, not just English people. Lots of Americans and Australians here, too.

Welcome to the forum!

I've never heard of the "Gallop 5": what is that, exactly? (:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Bienvenue sur le forum Malote-Alizé!

The "Galops" are levels in their riding teaching system. Levels are 1 to 7, I think.

Debourrer is to break. When talking about "breaking a horse" we are talking about putting the first few rides on a horse and the preparation that needs to be done before we even attempt to get on them.

Thank you every body for you home !

Yes that's right (y) !
In France we have 7 levels (and 2 additional, but the level 8 is "monitorat" (is it mentoring in english ?) and the level 9 is "instructeur" (instructor ?).
We call it "Galop" ;)
