The Northwest coast of France is full of history, culture and natural landscapes. Endless long coastal sections are characterised by beautiful beaches, charming villages and dramatic cliffs. During these trails you will discover two of the most famous regions of this corner of France; Brittany and Normandy. These iconic regions are well reputed for their fantastic food and drink culture, including fine cheese, butter, orchard fruits, cider, calvados, crepes, a host of pastries and a veritable symphony of seafood including the famous oysters of the salt fed marshes surrounding Mont Sant Michel. Alongside all this, you will discover charming French towns and historic villages complete with cobbled streets, cosy back alleys and ample little markets, as well as the beautiful weather, sandy beaches and stunning countryside for lovers of the outdoors and nature. Both regions are also well-known for the part they played during the war and relics of the great, pivotal battles fought on these shores can still be found today.
During these rides, you will be led by partners Jean and Amelie, both competent horse-people with years of experience in the field of competitive horse riding and equestrian tourism. Jean is a qualified equestrian "guide de Tourism" but holds the majority of his early riding experience in the sport of TREC, for which he has won many world titles over the years. He believes that horses who have good basic training in the discipline of TREC also make phenomenal trail horses as they are intelligent, adaptable, brave and trustworthy. Amelie is also a qualified equestrian guide and has worked for several years in the industry. She brings her passion for horses and great knowledge of their care with her.
Jean and Amelie offer two trails in these regions, one in Normandy and one in Brittany, which run just once a year and are usually back-to-back. Adventurous individuals may choose to book both trails for an incredible two-week discovery of these regions.
