Sportive trail for thrills

The sportive riding aims to bring the thrills of rhythms supported riders while respecting the physical condition of their mount. Our horses barbe arbes and barbes are accustomed to the ground, some are calm and other sports enthusiasts. Some heavier horses are available for heavier riders.

The sportive rides are intended for experimental riders in the three speed (sitting and standing) in different types of ground. It is advisable to have a good physical condition, and already made several hikes of at least a week. Step between 50 and 60 kms a day, from 5 to 9 h of horse per day depending on the ground.

We reserve the right to refuse any rider not having these minimum skills or making a false or erroneous statement when registering. In this case the price of the hike is due.

Coaching and accommodation

Coaching is provided by our experienced guide. A logistics vehicle transports luggage, food and equipment joined us at the noon and evening stop. This raid is done without bag just a bead for a sweater and a bottle of water. Accommodation is in comfortable guest house or hotel (with swimming pool sometime).
