Landes and Perigord Combo Ride

Landes and Perigord Combo Ride
Dordogne France
In 1152, the marriage of Eleanor and Henry of Plantagenet leads the Aquitaine region into a long conflict, the 100 year war. Numerous walled towns and castles were built during this period in order to respond to the different strategic, political and economic requirements.     

We invite you on this journey back in time, roaming on the back of our courageous chargers. Through deeper and deeper, yet thick, harmonious and mellow valleys, we will advance towards this magnificent forest that served as a refuge for yokels, and where a maze of ancient paths, surrounded by Box unfurls.

Situated at the border of 3 different departments of France: Lot - Lot et Garonne – Dordogne;  we’ll discover a new ground , new landscape  and new  vegetation every day which lead us trough history from castle to castle.
