Equus Journeys send riders of all levels on horse riding holidays all over the world, but have recently been focusing on somewhere a little closer to home. Working alongside their French sister company, Cheval d’Aventure, which has been offering high-quality horse riding holidays for over 40 years, they have been able to carefully select 30 rides just across the channel in the beautiful French countryside.
They have searched the most interesting trails and itineraries available, focusing on providing a range of holidays, catering for all riding levels, budgets and tastes.
With Equus Journeys, you can explore the heart of the French countryside as you ride through ancient Roman villages in Burgundy, assist with the moving of Méren and Castillon horses to their summer pastures or enjoy a relaxing wine tasting in the grounds of one of the Loire Valley’s impressive châteaus. Ride through enchanting Alpine villages and unspoiled woodland or challenge yourself technically with an endurance ride encountering steep ascents and long days spent in the saddle.
Alternatively, by choosing a centre-based ride, both riders and non-riders alike can travel together and choose from a variety of activities in the great French outdoors before returning, in the evening, to stay in comfortable gîte accommodation and enjoy freshly prepared meals and warm French hospitality.
Whichever ride you choose, you will be led by qualified, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides who are passionate about their horses’ welfare and about helping you get the most out of your time in France. Just in case your French isn’t quite up to scratch, your guides are usually English speakers too!
So, if you are tempted by the idea of cantering along Atlantic or Mediterranean beaches, enjoying leisurely and sumptuous alfresco picnics you can find more information on our website –www.equus-journeys.com. along with our safaris, instructional holidays and trail rides across the world or call us on 01905 388977.
