SUMMARY of the film
To mark the centenary in March 2010 of International Women’s Day, the issue of the place of women in horse riding is examined today.In France, almost 80% of registered members of the French Equestrian Federation are women and equestrian professions are largely filled with women. Horseback-riding is a sport that exalts femininity, as much in attitude as in dress and a large part of its practice is devoted to caring and mothering the horse.
As with all sporting practice, horseback-riding is influenced by changes that take place in our society, such as the role that women play within it. This change has been nothing less than revolutionary in the equestrian world. Women on horse-back and the women involved with horses are bringing about profound and lasting change in the equestrian arena, in the economics of leisure riding and equestrian professions, and in the intimate bond between humans and horses; to such an extent that male jockeys have deliberately taken advantage of this trend.
