Sporty riding trip in the Morvan region

Our horses are born in our riding center from selected parents. Very young they start enjoying the pleasure of being outdoors in contact with nature. They are balanced in their heads and well fit because they play together and they run up and down hill at Montcharlon all day long. They are calm, happy and kind, yet fast and generous at request. . They are capable of anything, they will surprise you and they will allow you to experience a unique riding trip and to discover a new form of riding.

This other type of riding is labeled by commentators as « sporty riding ». Journeys are fast pace, with plenty of long runs and rides across difficult and challenging terrain. You will surprise yourself by accomplishing circuits which you never dreamed possible on a horse.

Journeys which make you hungry and that is why good cuisine is part of the program. Meals will be outdoors at noon, in wild although comfortable spots thanks to our well known organization (tables, seats, warm meals, etc…). Diner will be served at the hotel where will be sleep at the end of every day.

Exemple of a program :

1st day: We meet at 8: 00 AM at our riding center where we will serve you breakfast while we assign a horse to each rider.  We prepare our horses and leave towards Mont Beuvray (Bibracte) where lunch will be waiting for us.  After our meal, we visit the archeological site of the Celt civilization and then we run down hill towards the Grande Verrière where Cécile will welcome us at the Post Office Hotel.

2nd day: Long journey, starting at the green desert of the Folin forest where we will have lunch at one of the highest points in the Morvan. We will come back to through the Roche valley and the Chatillon forest before running up and down the unique circuit known as the « Big Eight »

 

Similar programs over a period of 3 or 4 days are also offered

 

Lodging :

You will sleep at typical Burgundy small hotels where we will find a comfortable bed and a warm shower to rest after our active daily journey.

 

Food :

Evening meals will be taken at the hotel.  Lunch will be generous, inspired by traditional country cooking, warm or cold according to the weather.  At noon, it is always a pleasure to see from far away a well-dressed table, in the middle of a field, waiting for us.

 

The horses :
We know that the key to a horse trip is the horses.  That is why we have chosen and breed our own. They are all born in the Morvan region and they have lived all their life in the same region.  They are calm, well in their heads but, when need be or when requested, they are fast and generous.  They are capable of anything, they will surprise you and they will allow you to experience a unique riding trip and to discover a new form of riding.
