Conversations in movement

In open discussions, Hermès partner riders share their philosophy, their dreams and their techniques and offer their vision of horsemanship.

In this new episode, Simon Delestre, twice winner of the Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais, shares his experience with Laetitia du Couëdic, a young show-jumping hopeful. 

  • Lightness

    With Jessica von Bredow-Werndl & Karen Polle

    Representing two different disciplines, riders Jessica von Bredow-Werndl (dressage) and Karen Polle (show jumping) discuss the art of lightness through a bareback riding exercise. This pas de deux evokes the harmony between the rider’s body and that of her horse.

  • Generosity

    With Abdelkébir Ouaddar & Victor Lévecque

    Abdelkébir Ouaddar, Morocco’s leading Olympic rider, and Victor Lévecque, a young hopeful in French eventing, share their vision of generosity, their keyword in riding, and their greatest asset in competition. Their conversation is illustrated by a sequence of free jumps, without a rider, which allow the horse to express its personality freely.

  • Humility

    With Rodrigo Pessoa & Astier Nicolas

    Rodrigo Pessoa, the Brazilian show-jumping legend, and Astier Nicolas, the French double Olympic medallist in eventing, share their lessons in humility.

Innovation at a gallop

Developed in collaboration with our master saddler, a veterinary surgeon, engineers and partner riders, Hermès saddles perpetuate the house’s saddlery heritage and are the result of an innovative approach that combines comfort with technical sophistication.
Each saddle is then made to the precise measurements of horse and rider to fit their specific characteristics.
