    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.

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

    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.

    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" ;)
