Honestly, I don’t think I could have had a better New Year’s Day. I literally galloped through the grounds at Versailles on the most precious bay called Cambueil. He was so light footed, I felt like we were barely touching the ground. Baptiste took a ton of amazing pictures. It was a bit foggy, so we got some great fake Instagram influencer pictures. I would absolutely recommend this company for any level of rider. We probably rode 3+ hours, but I believe you could go on a nice walk around the grounds as well. The wine and cheese at the end of the ride didn’t hurt either! As Paris was in the Transport Strike, we had to work around or original schedule some. Baptiste was very accommodating and helpful through this process. Half chaps and helmet were provided.

This company is simply fantastic. It is beautifully run with an easy reservation process and easy payment. The morning begins with coffee and a pastry in the beautiful park surrounding Versailles. Then the owner, Baptiste, puts you on his gorgeous and beautifully trained horses for the ride of your life. I had some riding experience, my husband had less. By the end, my husband was trotting and cantering -and enjoying every minute. Baptiste let me canter a bit on my own.....absolute heaven. He is so kind, knowledgeable, and positive - it is like you are riding with a good friend. Also, the horses are the most well behaved - but also engaged and willing - of any I have ever been on. You even get to stop and take a photo with Versailles in the background. After a glorious two hour ride, Baptiste brings out wine, bread and a wonderful cheese spread he makes. What a perfect day. This experience is well worth your time and will make for a day you’ll not soon forget.

Jackie and I both agree that riding with Baptiste was the true highlight of a fabulous trip to France. Your riding location is perfect, the horses were great, and your warmth and hospitality just heart warming. Thank you so much for a terrific afternoon.

I wanted to experience horseback riding in Paris, France for our 30th wedding anniversary. I contacted the owner of our apartment in Paris and they suggested Horse in the City. I emailed Baptiste Auclair, he owns 30 horses in a countryside out of Paris and has been horseback riding since his parents put him on a horse as a baby. He gives you three horseback riding routes to choose from. You'll see them on his website link. We chose the route in Palace de Versailles. We met him there and first he had a morning snack for us. He emailed us before the day to prepare for the ride and asked us for our height, weight and our horseback riding experience. He brought us a helmet, gloves and boot chaps? The horses were perfect for our stature. Since we are beginner horseback riders there were times I didn't know how to get my horse moving along after he munched on the grass. Baptiste always was there to help me. He attached a rope on the horse to get him moving along and at the same time he taught me what I must do to get the horse going. It was a beautiful experience riding through the gardens. He spoke of the history there in his french accent, which we very much enjoyed. He took photos of us as requested and in the end of the tour we had wine and cheese with Baptiste. Wonderful memories to add in celebrating our 30th anniversary.

I was offered the trail in Versailles Palace for my birthday and was absolutely thrilled by the experience I had. Baptiste is really nice and the horses are great for this kind of activity: calm (not afraid of dogs barking or kids or bicycles), yet they're full of speed if you want to enjoy a nice canter session!! + they're beautiful which is cool for pictures ;) I definitely recommend it!!
