France

Explore France on horseback

At Equus Journeys we offer rides all across the globe, but we must confess that we do have a special affinity with a country renowned for its excellent riding, beautiful and varied landscape, and excellent gastronomy - France! Working alongside our French sister company, Cheval d'Aventure, we have carefully selected over 30 unique rides in France with something for everyone, from exhilarating fast-paced rides, relaxing family stays, or even luxurious riding holidays in castles of old . Ride off the beaten track across the beautiful French countryside, passing spectacular Châteaux, traditional villages, galloping along the coast or under the shadow of ancient forests.
