A Brilliant Horse Show

Horses Prancing to music under superb control of their riders. It was well organised and we could wander around the stable areas later.

Due to our travelling commitments, we were unable to book a show and a tour on the same day - both are worth doing. The facility is huge and very interesting and some of the horsemanship we saw in the show was simply amazing. Don't expect perfection though as they train horses here and not all are up to top-flight... More

A unique opportunity to see fabulously trained horses and riders. The show is in French but it loses nothing in the translation!

What a treat we went to a performance of the amazing 'Cadre Noir'. After the show we were able to look around the stables & meet the horses what a lovely way to spend a morning. Make sure you book before you go.

The facility is new and the shows are very well done. It's for the horsey set, but folks with an appreciation for beautiful and graceful animals will enjoy the trip.

We took three young girls (6-8) to this weekly summer show. Whilst we were able to book on the day, you were able to book on-line and bring the email to get entry (this was not made clear on thee website) This was a great show of mainly dressage. There was only some english from the announcer but the horses... More

We did the tour of the horses and stables and loved every minute of this. Then we were lucky enough to attend an evening performance. These horses and riders are so talented.
