Discover a new aspect of the Mont Saint Michel, wonder of the West...
For a few days, we enjoy wonderful views, an extraordinary landscape, a huge bay and long canters on the fine sand !
We offer you a tonic ride through the Mont Saint Michel bay, for advanced riders only.

Day 1
Arrival at the riding centre in Roz sur Couesnon by the end of the day or transfer from Pontorson train station.
Dinner and night at the guesthouse.

Day 2
If you want, for those who have their own car, it is possible to arrive in the morning before 9am.
This morning, we ride to the green road towards "Saint Anne Chapel". On the seawall of the "Duchess Anne", we turn to "Colombel". The first part of our trip makes us discover the polders, this area that was under the sea before and that is now used as a farming land. Near the "Hauts de Saint Marcan", we ride across a dense forest with steep paths. We reach the "Chappe Telegraph" where we stop for lunch. This afternoon, we stay on the cliffs above the bay, ride into the woods and enjoy nice views on the Mont Saint Michel, playing hide-and-seek between the trees... We breathe for a while in the woods before some vertiginous descents. At Roz-sur-Couesnon belvedere, where we stop for a moment, we are in front of a wonderful view point on the Mont Saint Michel Bay. Our guide takes this chance to give us some details on this national monument. Then we ride again towards the guesthouse where we have dinner and spend a nice moment when everybody can share his feelings about the ride before a good night sleep.

Day 3
This morning, this is the big day ! We take the green road to the fine sand bay that we cross cantering for the most part !
During the crossing, we live intense moments. The extraordinary light gives magical colors to this unending landscape. Tombelaine Island, huge rock laying in the middle of the Bay, an ornithologic reserve, and the Mont Saint Michel, so imposing, so majestic... Our guide tells us the history and legends of these mysterious places.
Then we gallop again in this immense landscape, where the only limits are the crossing of rivers.
The riders can leave after 6pm, transfer is possible to Pontorson train station.


Warning : The program of this day is given as a rough guide. We often need to modify the itinerary depending on the weather and the ground. We cannot ride everywhere and the tide can change the landscape and the possible routes from one day to the other. We also have to take into account the schedule of the tides.
We cannot stop for a visit of the Mont Saint Michel, as we don't have anywhere to leave the horses and the crowds of walking tourists is too important on the site to visit the Mont on horseback safely.

We recommend this ride to advanced riders only, who are able to manage their horse outdoors at all gaits. There are a few canters in open spaces and you should be strong enough to cope with 5 hours in the saddle everyday.

Riders under 12 years old, over 60 years old, or more than 85 kg can be accepted but only if their riding skills are good enough and with a confirmation from our guide, in order to make sure that we can get an adapted horse.
Riders can come with their own horse. However, the guide will only accept horses that are well-trained and that can live with a herd of horses without trouble.
