Equitation in the French tradition is a school of horseback riding that emphasizes harmonious relations between humans and horses. Practised throughout France and elsewhere, its most widely known community is the Cadre Noir of Saumur, based at the National School of Equitation. Here horsemen learn to combine human demands with respect for the horse's body and mood. Riders desire to establish close relations with the horse and work towards achieving ‘lightness'. There is strong cooperation between generations and respect for the experience of older riders.
