Riders Academy

What is Riders Academy

Riders academy

Dedication, hardworking and rigorous management, these are the three pillars of Thomas Genin’s concept leading to success in the equestrian sports. Thomas has materialized this concept by the set up set-up of his “Riders Academy”. In daily practice this Riders Academy offers the full service required to reach excelling results for riders and horses. It exceeds by far the traditional daily lessons, as it includes a tailor program of systematic training with targets set by them and for them, a detailed evaluation of the progress made by the rider and the behavior/attitude of his horse. This kind of intensive preparation and follow-up is not just a part of the lessons, it can be or should be extended to all jumping events in which the rider participates. The impact of this coaching by the Riders Academy on the results obtained is paramount.

The lessons and the coaching can be organized at The Academy/Hidalgo, at the rider’s location and at the locations of jumping’s.
