Les cavaliers de l'équipe de France de reining se sont retrouvés hier mardi à la Mailleraye-sur-Seine en Seine-Maritime pour une séance d'entraînement, quelques semaines avant le début des Jeux équestres mondiaux qui auront lieu à partir de la fin du mois d'août à Caen.

C'est une discipline assez mal connue du grand public, le reining s'invite aux Jeux équestres mondiaux qui se déroulent pendant deux semaines en Normandie, à Caen. Pour faire simple, il s'agit d'équitation rodéo, celle des cowboys où l'on enchaîne des figures spectaculaires. Vous vous demandez toujours à quoi cela ressemble ? Nos vidéos à regarder plus bas vous donneront un petit aperçu de cette discipline venue tout droit des westerns.

Vous ne le saviez sans doute pas, mais la France a son équipe nationale de reining. Et les Bleus se sont retrouvés hier mardi pour un entraînement à la Mailleraye-sur-Seine en Seine-Maritime. L'équipe comprend six cavaliers, tous habillés en cowboy, car cela rend encore plus spectaculaire la discipline.

"Avoir un cheval qui pourrait prétendre à monter sur le podium, il faut compter 300.000 euros"

Les cavaliers doivent effectuer les figures imposées avec leurs chevaux, faire quatre tours sur soi très rapides, des arrêts brutaux en glissant sur les pates arrières. Cela demande évidemment beaucoup de précision, et les cavaliers profitent de l'oeil acéré de leur sélectionneur, Guy Duponchel. Pour ce dernier la confidentialité du reining se ressent sur les investissements et pose problème en concours "Avoir un cheval qui pourrait prétendre à monter sur le podium, il faut compter 300.000 euros, et ça l'équipe ne l'a pas. On a d'excellents cavaliers, et bien souvent on n'a pas le cheval qui nous permettrait d'aller plus haut ".

"J'espère que les Jeux équestres mondiaux vont nous attirer un peu de monde"

Reste que les Jeux équestres mondiaux sont une excellente opportunité pour l'équipe de France de reining de faire parler d'elle. Bastien Bourgeois est l'un des six membres de l'équipe de France est dieppois. Il est également gérant de centre équestre et moniteur d'équitation western, alors pour lui ces Jeux équestres mondiaux sont une formidable opportunité. "J'espère que ça va nous amener un peu de monde, le fait que les Jeux mondiaux se déroulent à Caen, les gens viennent voir, nous voient à la télé, nous voient dans les journaux, et se disent : tiens on va essayer ça ".
