Ride Outs and Trekking

Horse and pony ride outs and trekking even for beginners in the heart of Normandy is  our speciality. You have never been on a horse before, it is possible to ride out in La Manche  because our cavalry is extremely calm and docile .

Many country lanes around our equestrian centre in the  Contentin part of Normandy  enable you to experience a sport you always wanted to try.
