It has been a long time since Eleonora Ottaviani, the YRA Board and Jean Maurice Bonneau thought it would have been interesting one day to organize a masterclass with young talents in the Grand Manège de Saumur and to share the experiences with equestrian stakeholders. From trainers to owners, riders, and fans.


Together with IFCE ( Institut Français du Cheval et de l’Equitation) YRA discussed the project already few years ago. However, some adversities, mainly due to the pandemic, forced them to delay the plan. Finally, this November was the perfect time, and last week the dream came true.
