Emma Jamieson joins the Haras de Malleret Rider Team
British professional dressage rider Emma Jamieson has joined the riding team of Haras de Malleret in Pian Médoc, France.
Jamieson began his employment in France on Monday October 17, 2022 and will assist Alfonso de la Chica Parras in the daily training of Malleret dressage horses under the care of Managing Director Gérald Martinez.
Gain experience in Great Britain
Jamieson, 26, has been involved with horses all her life. Her former employer, British international Grand Prix rider Sarah Millis, describes her as “a dedicated, calm and intelligent rider” who is “very good with young horses.
Emma has competed up to Intermediate II level in the UK and trained with Richard and Nicky Barrett and Michelle and Mette Assouline.
It will take horses bred and owned by Malleret up to Grand Prix level.
A new future in France
Gérald Martinez is delighted to welcome Jamieson to Haras de Malleret.
“Emma was the first person to apply and I immediately had the right feeling, a feeling that I tend to trust and go for, even with horses,” Martinez said. “We have received many applications for the position, all with great qualities and I thank all these people. I am quite proud of it because it also proves that Haras de Malleret is appreciated beyond the borders of Europe. And Malleret is currently too small in livestock to hire more riders.
Gérald continues, “Emma has prepared many horses up to Grand Prix level ‘behind the scenes’ and I think has great qualities, sensitivity and a good feeling with horses. I believe we share the same philosophy. I believe she is a rider capable of adapting to the conformation and personality of each horse.”
Jamieson is excited about her future in France.
“Malleret runs an exceptional stable and has an excellent reputation with fabulous horses,” Jamieson said. “These horses are proving themselves at all levels. Having worked for some of the best riders and trainers in the UK, I wanted to further my career and take the next step. So when this opportunity presented itself, I couldn’t let her pass.”
She added: “Malleret shares my values on horse welfare and management, keeping horses as a top priority and primary focus.”
Emma will get to know all of the Malleret sport horses during Alfonso’s vacation, after which a team meeting will take place in early December to allocate the individual horses best suited to each rider on the team.
