The department of Corrèze is located in the region of Limousin and is the ideal place for beautiful horse rides in the middle of a preserved nature. The region abounds in unique and protected natural sites. On horseback, from lakes to waterfalls, from plains to forests, a thousand paths cross what looks like a thousand-year-old landscape.
You will arrive late afternoon to the equestrian farm, where you will have some time to settle down in your room and have a first look around the place and its environment before getting to know the rest of the group around a homemade dinner.
On this first day, we will check the good relationship between riders and horses. We leave toward south through diverse rural landscapes and discover typical villages of the regional Natural reserve, like the Tourondel and its original bakery. For lunch, we take out our picnics from our saddle bags and enjoy a nice relaxing moment. Then, after a ride at the bottom of the Massif des Monédières, we return to the farm in the late afternoon.
Today we ride towards the north, passing through the country’s beautiful and typical mountain range. At Lestards, we visit one of the rare thatch covered churches of Europe. This small church of the XIIth century has exceptional acoustics… In the afternoon, we pass by the Gallo-Roman site of the Col des Géants and discover another amazing natural environment. Once we arrive at the farm, we will later on have dinner “Chez Monique” at Lestards.
This two days loop horseback riding on the Massif des Monédières and the plateau of Millevaches starts by discovering beautiful ancient stone villages. After lunch, we will go walking around the trail to the Tine waterfalls. At the end of the afternoon, we will arrive at Chadebec near Bonnefond, where we will leave our horses.
After this ride on the plateau de Millevaches, we head back toward the Massif des Monédières. At noon, we picnic in the middle of Larfeuil national forest. We will visit the abandoned village of Clédat, which has been rehabilitated by a local association. One of its volunteers will join us and present us some initiatives led by the group in order to protect and animate the site. Following this patrimonial discovery, we will cross back the Corrèze to arrive in the afternoon to our accommodation and have dinner in Chauzeix.
Today, the highlight of the ride, should be the remarkable landscapes of the Massif des Monédières. We climb to the summit of “Suc au May” to its orientation table located in the Natura2000 zone. If we have a good weather, this ride should offer an amazing view point over the Massif of Sancy and the Mounts of Cantal in Auvergne.
We will also visit the organic farm of la Monédière where you will be free to buy some local products. After taking care a last time of our horses and share a goodbye appetizer, the departure is scheduled by the end of the afternoon.

"Comfortable accomodation near the stables, really warm welcome by an amazing family who pampered us. We tried several horses, paint, quarter, appaloosas, all big-hearted. A human and equestrian adventure. A lot of demonstrations and work beside the horse. Riding comes only at the end and is the high point of the last 2 days." - Clothilde M. (mai 2014)
