Where does one begin? I have never seen horses in such fine condition and to view their stables, see their training grounds was a pleasure. Next you see them training, the dressage ring(s), the performance arena, or just hacking in the magnificent grounds. Watch them perform in displays and International performances, or see them perform on the cross-country competitions with... More

Well worth a visit and tour around if in vicinity of Saumur. Our lovely guide spoke very good English and readily answered any questions. Able to view many of these beautiful animals at close quarters. Affordable gifts too! :)

Saw the 1 hour show on Thursday morning - great performance by the Cadre Noire and also the guest international horse stunt riders. We booked at our map site and got the tickets for 15 euros each instead of 18. The site is a few miles to the west of Saumur, so make sure you go to the right place.... More

Such an elegant display of animal dance. Most enjoyable, & lasted an hour. The poor horses must have been very tired after the display. Thoroughly enjoyable

We were so lucky to be in the area to see this show. We did not book, but there were plenty of seats. Huge areana with good views all around. The show lasted an hour. Well worth the money 18.00 euro per adult. The trainers and horses were outstanding, such control and patience . There is a shop too to... More

A great day out. Learnt a lot about a totally different approach to equestrianism. Saw some outdoor exercise and indoor show exercise as well as a full tour of the facility. Stroked some horses. Tour is usually in French but a few Brits ensured it was delivered bilingually. ..usually English notes. Good hour or so.

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!
