Vad du kommer att göra

I would be delighted to introduce you, on horseback, to Maisons-Laffitte and the forest of Saint-Germain; two exceptional historic sites imbued with centuries-old equestrian culture. This unique experience will last 3 hours and will include 1.5 hours of ride.

If you want to escape the Parisian world for a day, come to Maisons-Laffitte to explore the "Cité du Cheval" which is just 20 minutes away by train. During your stroll, you will have the opportunity to ride through the park of Maisons-Laffitte and the Saint-Germain forest, where you might meet beautiful thorough bred on the way to the racehorse training centre, and horses of all disciplines whose riders rub shoulders in a very friendly and caring atmosphere. You will also learn more about the historical heritage of the location such as the castle and the hunting lodge built by Louis XV.

On this ride we are happy to welcome riders who have never experienced horseback riding before or who has less then one year regular practice. We will introduce you to mount safely and to control a horse at a walk and depending on how you feel we might also try some trot. We also do organise rides for intermediate and confirmed riders :

Other things to note
Please ensure that you have an insurance covering horse riding in France. If you do not have one, we can subscribe a "holiday card" which costs 10 € and is valid for one month for you. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.

Maximum weight for riders : 90 kg = 200 lbs.

I’m from Gothenburg in Sweden, but I have lived in France since 1986. Having worked in a wide range of sectors - ranging from language school director to travel agent manager – I decided to complete two training courses to become a riding instructor and an equestrian tourist guide. Dressage rider, I have been working in tourism for 30 years and thus I wanted to combine my passion and professional experience. I am fascinated by Maisons-Laffitte and the surrounding region. I would like to share with you this enthusiasm and show you beautiful and unexpected places, as well as the unique atmosphere at the Cité du Cheval.

Var ni kommer att vara

The beautiful Saint-Germain forest is well-adapted for horses as it presents 75 kilometres of bridle ways with soft ground. Follow the hoof prints of French kings and emperors and admire the historical heritage such as the wall of the Saint -Sebastian Fort where the army of Louis XIV trained.

A magic afternoon. After the usual tourist bustle of Paris we were yearning for some connection with animals and nature, and this proved to be exactly the remedy. We were matched with horses that reflected our level of experience, and the quiet ride through the wooded shadow of the forest of St. Germain was so meditative and tranquil that we were scrambling to rearrange our schedules for another visit.

A refreshing getaway barely half an hour away on the train from Paris. Lovely stable and horses. Friendly cavaliers in the club house. Magical location of the Cité du Cheval. Anna is a great host and ‘monitrice’ with wonderful/historical stories being told along the trail. As they say horse people are one of the best, this experience proves it.

The horses were very friendly. For the beginner ride know that you will only be on a dedicated trail for horses around where the experience begins. I was a bit disappointed that we did not enter the St. Germain forest. The other 1.5 hours are spent brushing the horse and getting them saddled.

While visiting Paris, my fiancé surprised me with a day trip out to Maison Lafitte to go horseback riding. I hadn't ridden a horse in 5 years and my fiancé had never gone horseback riding before, so we really appreciated Anna and Stephanie's detailed instruction (in both French and English!) which helped make the afternoon stress-free and enjoyable. We were given time to bond with our horses and then enjoyed riding them through the Saint Germain forest. It was a magical experience and we will absolutely visit again the next time we're in France!

Anna runs a lovely program, but for health reasons I ended up not able to actually go on the tour. however, I still got to spend a lot of time with a darling horse and Anna was very accommodating. She refunded me, found me a map of the area, and gave great tips of what to see. I ended up having a wonderful time in her beautiful town. I really appreciate how she turned a disappointment into a delightful experience. Please do book knowing that if something happens last minute, she'll still find a way for you to have a good time.
