- The ATAO company, Toma and Amandine
Toma has been in the equestrian world for over fifteen years. Trained by Christophe Hasta Luego, his natural sensitivity led him towards free training and school dressage.
Co-founder and artist of the company Le Cheval Rouge from 2005 to 2013, he also worked alongside Jean-Marc Imbert, Gaby Dew, Jean-Louis Armand of Compagnie Caracole, Bruno Boisliveau and many others
Amandine learned to ride bareback before she learned to walk, and it's a passion that will never leave her. Her lifetime's ambition is to understand the way horses think. She is a horsewoman of great finesse, always listening to her horses, in search of the perfect working relationship.
Lorelei is an equestrian artist passionate about her horses. Her mission is to share with the public the special relationship she has created with her companions. Through each of her disciplines, Cossack, dressage and Hungarian post, she shares a little of her daily work and makes you marvel at the complicity and confidence she has developed with her horses. The pleasure she takes being on stage has led her twice to win the open trophy at the Equestria festival, in 2009 and in 2015. Serenity, simplicity, listening and respect are key words of her art - and you will be delighted with the result
