Presentation of the trek

For beginners or those wishing to increase their confidence on horse-back… We have put together a special programme to develop your skill-base, over 3 days.

On day 1, we will remain at the stables to get to know the horse and receive some instruction. We will go out on a short trek lasting 1-2 hours.

On the second and third days, we will follow a circular route around the medieval village of Issigeac and the vineyards of Monbazillac.
At midday, we will tie up the horses while we have our picnic lunch. In the afternoon, we will follow some beautiful tracks across hills and forests, fields of crops and vineyards, adapting the length and speed of the trek according to the ability of the group.

During these treks, over the course of the 2 days, we will develop your skill-base by explaining:

  • How to care for your horse: grooming, harnessing, diet, injuries, the work of the farrier and maintenance of the leathers.
  • Orientation: how to read a compass, IGN maps and trekking software on smartphones (Iphigenie).
  • The skills of the rider: positioning, choice of speed according to the terrain, health and safety.
You will be accommodated free-of-charge in our recently-renovated stone gite, Pech Bouquet, where you can make use of the outdoor swimming pool, weather permitting.

To know

  • Morning welcome between 8.00am and 9.00am, breakfast and dinner provided at the gite.
  • Lunch time picnic will be provided by the team.
