Riding Level
This ride is designed for strong intermediate to advanced riders with good physical condition.
For riders who do not ride on a regular basis, we advise to schedule some riding sessions before this trip in order to get ready for the long riding days.
We only accept adult riders (no children allowed) with experience on this trip. Riders are expected to be in good physical condition.

Pace
The pace of this trail is quite fast and comprises frequent trots and canters. It is important that you feel comfortable riding long distances and spend long hours in the saddle (40 to 45 km a day with about 6 to 7 hours riding). We ask riders to keep a minimum of 30 m distance between horses during faster paced sections, in order to avoid dust.
To give more comfort, trotting or galloping is generally individually or by group of two, whether it is in forest or on the beach. Some group gallops on the beach are of course available.    

Horses 
We have 30 horses (mostly Anglo-Arabs) and 5 ponies. Most of them are born in our family farm and they leave as a herd.
Beauty, blood, intelligence, frankness, kindness, and generosity are the essential qualities we seek in the choice of our horses. Our horses are safe, brave and easygoing.
We take great care in providing our horses with a good quality of life.

Staff
Guidance is guaranteed by qualified /certified English speaking equestrian guide (French professional certification: A.T.E., CQP ASA or BPJEPS Tourisme Équestre) having good regional knowledge and willing to let you discover the beauty of this area.
