Alizée Froment

Trainer

Alizée Froment grew up spending all her days away from school in the family stable that her mother, a professional journalist, ran in the south of France. A former jumper rider, Froment switched to dressage when she was a young rider, and eventually competed successfully internationally at the Grand Prix level, as well as training the French National Dressage Pony Team for five years.

Since 2009, Froment has been sharing her philosophy of working with horses in beautiful performances where she demonstrates that even the most technical dressage exercises can be ridden with only a neck rope (no bridle or bit). With several hundred thousands of spectators who have seen her perform live all over the world, more than 90,000 followers on Instagram, almost 50,000 on Facebook, she has become famous for integrating the neck rope into her training routine with horses of all ages and levels. She shows it is not only a way to strengthen the relationship with the horse but also a way of testing whether dressage training is progressing correctly—slowly needing less and less aids while still keeping the connection and understanding with the horse.

Froment has been called “The French woman on a mission”, as she is always looking to achieve a better understanding of horses while discovering new things to help them reach their full potential and become the best version of themselves, both mentally and physically.
