Riding

We are an equestrian gîte from where you may set off on outings in the charm of natural surroundings over a week-end or a complete week. Have a check on our various options to suit you and your horse. After each day’s excursion your four-footed friends can rest in the copious but secure paddocks which you can oversee from your window.

Thierry has been riding since the age of 12, ranging along the lanes, tracks and streams of the Indre and the Creuse, and is thus well-qualified to introduce you to the immensity of Lake Chambon, the majesty of the ruins at Crozant, the gushing streams between the two Creuse rivers, the thorny paths through the Chabannes woods. As a point of honour this ‘man of the Creuse’ will be proud to reveal the secrets of the region’s trails and its picturesque villages.

Outings or excursions made to measure’ :

  •  First ride or riding lessons for children or adults alike.
  • Trips of 1½ to 2½ hours or excursions of one or more days accompanied by Thierry. Choose your route adapted to your experience and according to your preferences, whether you are a beginner or a competent rider. Don”t hesitate to ask for information and above all to tell us about your expectations.
  • Routes planned according to the suitability of your mount so that you can wander peacefully through the verdant nooks and crannies of our region. Don’t hesitate to contact Thierry; he will be delighted to give you the benefit of his advice.
