Palm Equestrian Academy’s Cyril Pittion-Rossillon Instructor and Coach Leads 2023 Teaching Tours

Cyril Pittion-Rossillon, graduate of the French National Riding School in Saumur, brings a unique perspective to riding instruction and coaching. Having competed on the Open Jumper Circuit and through Preliminary Eventing in France, Cyril is no stranger to having learned, practiced then learned to teach French Classical Dressage Principles in his early education.

With teaching based on the French Classical riding tradition, everyone can benefit from sound, time tested and humane principles. Cyril has found a niche with the Dressage Principles Difference. His talent to assess a horse and rider, develop a plan to reach a specific goal and execute that goal is second to none.

After more than 30 years in the United States teaching and coaching, Cyril has schooled riders at Grand Prix Dressage in National and CDI Levels as well as Amateurs through FEI and riders to improve their jumping for hunters, equitation and eventing by using a combination of dressage techniques, pole exercises and jumping grids.

Cyril is proud of the countless years that he has spent honing his skills and says, “I enjoy teaching riders and horses of all levels and work hard to design the best educational experience whatever the goal might be!”

In 2023, Cyril’s teaching tours are set for June in the Midatlantic Area, concentrated in Pennsylvania and for August in the Midwest including Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. With more than five years at each of these regions, some locations are on the schedule every year and first-time venues are added annually. Tour locations may choose from a variety of group clinics with classroom/theory and Q & As on a variety of topics.

Kristin Carey, owner of Hippophile Farm in LaPointe, WI has hosted Cyril for many years. She appreciates bringing Cyril to her Farm “because the riders always leave with new things to work on and the tools to do them correctly”.
