Visconte Simon Cocozza spent his childhood in Rome, Italy, but was educated in England. The family passion for horses inspired him to study for the British Horse Society’s BHSAI, followed by the Instructor training of the Advanced National Certificate in Equine Business Management at Warwickshire College of Equine Studies. Following his return to mainland Europe, Visconte Cocozza became the first non-French national to obtain the Brevet Professionnel and become a Trainer and Examiner for the La Fédération Française d’Equitation (FFE). As a performance coach specializing in biomechanics and riding ethics, he now writes articles and books on better training practices, as well as lecturing at universities and conducting clinics internationally. His stable is based in Normandy, France.
