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 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.

What a jaw dropper! The Cadre Noir show was outstanding - horsemanship and equine demonstrations that were truly incredible. A definite must if in or near the area. Lovely to walk around the stable yard.

We returned in the afternoon for the "guided tour" and were unfortunately, a little disappointed. We were in a group with between 40 and 50 other people. It was more than a... More
