Falconry

I attended yesterday a show in which there was a marabou, and he put an incredible atmosphere!

It’s not the same thing to see an image of a marabou and have it there, and to feel it hover over you and admire him putting himself on the back of her tamer and stroking her hair.

So, here I am in the falconry shows.

Les aigles du Leman (lesaiglesduleman.com)

If they are often used – in France – in medieval shows, birds are not limited to this choice.


Look at the effect the bird’s flight has on the public: people are amazed and worried at the same time.

Yesterday, the show I saw was made under a tent – and it’s even more impressive.

Live show : Des crins et des ailes. (Fr)

Many companies associate equestrian art and the art of falconry – In France, horses are a passion and all French people know the school of Cadre Noir de Saumur

A show by Le Cadre Noir – ok it will be another post

This company has taken over a historical setting too – it is no longer in France – can you find where it comes from?
– the country of those who need of : a weapon, a horse and a woman ?

  1. Merci à toi ! Ce qu’on aimerait, c’est produire des spectacles à la Bartabas, avec aussi des fauconniers. Des spectacles moins centrés sur le passé. L’effet en salle est juste incroyable. et ça vaut la peine de creuser.

  2. Human’s think Animals are dumb creatures; yet who takes care of who? A dog comes into a home, how hard does it have to work? The so-called Owner feeds it, bathes it, provides a safe space to live in, takes it to the Vet. when it is sick…..These Bird’s are Pampered creatures, they no longer have to Hunt everyday, the Owner will Provide every-thing! Who Owns Who here? I used to raise goat’s and sheep, I found out that they were Way Smarter than Me, I had to go out everyday and tend to the flocks, all they had to do was Be There! Want Hay, Master will provide it; Want Grain? I will dispense it, buy it, dole it out, Please, let me Milk You! Humans are ruled by their Ego’s, animals use that Ego to their advantage…..Just thinking here!

  3. The gift of a Hug, especially in a time of Grief such as I am in, having just lost the Love of my life, and the Best Friend a man could ever hope to have, some friends stopped in my home yesterday with a Loaf of Bread, a cup of soup, and a HUG, Just what I needed Most!
