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.

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.

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.

Spent a great morning at the "presentation" of the Cadre Noir. The horses and trainers were superb, the show was well presented and we passed an excellent morning. 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

We had the privilege of visiting Cadre Noir during one of its formal presentations. The horses were beautiful and their performance was first class. We went to the stables after the show and enjoyed our time visiting with the horses.

We were in Saumur in June when one of the Cadre Noir demonstrations took place. It was a truly wonderful display with some additional highlights. The whole audience were appreciative of the skill of the riders and the relationship between the horse and rider. It was nice to be able to walk around the stables afterwards and see the beautiful...

We had a tour of the facility and was totally impressed, especially if you are a horse lover! We had the opportunity to see a performance there and my grand daughter absolutely loved it! Class performance by beautiful horses and professional riders! Very enjoyable!
