LIMOUSIN - Western Horseback Riding in Correze

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.

This region is full of singular and preserved natural sites. You will ride between rivers and falls, through bogs and forests, and through a thousand of paths running across millennial landscapes... This is idyllic scenery for a riding tour in full nature.
Corrèze ride Millevaches - RIDE IN FRANCE

 

Day 1
You will arrive in late afternoon at 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.

Day 2 - Build up to ethology and western
We start our stay by a half-day of introduction to our approach of ethology and western riding. The ethological view, a component of the interaction with the horses on foot or in the saddle, will be presented to you with passion by your guide, who will accompany you in an original approach for the creation of the riders-horses couples! We will continue with the preparation and the western equipment of the horses, and a session in the manege to acquaint ourselves with our approach of ethological and western riding. The morning will end by a short trail. In the afternoon we will leave for a longer trail in the Massif des Monédières. The paths from the farm will lead us from valleys to volcanic peaks, from hamlets to villages, from fields to forests... Something to enjoy a first insight of the typical heritage of the Nateural Regional Park of Millevaches. Back to the equestrian centre at the end of the afternoon.

Day 3 - The Church with a plant-covered roof
Today, we ride towards the north. We ride through wonderful typical landscapes in Middle Mountain. We have a small break in Lestards, where we visit one of the latest churches covered with thatch in Europe. In the afternoon, we discover other preserved sites, as well as the Col des Géants Gallo-Roman site. 


Day 4 - At the Corrèze ford
This loop leads us to La Goutte to have a picnic lunch in the cavity of a green valley. Here, we can relax; we can ford the Correze River and wade in it in hot weather. To arrive at the Correze River, we ride through the Puy Charrin sectional forest, and the undulating plains pastured by the Limousine cows. In the afternoon, we ride through different rural and forests landscapes. Some of them are wild and others are more civilized. Finally, we make a detour to see the waterfalls formed by the river in the Gour du Farandou rocks...


Day 5 - The abandoned village
After this excursion in the Millevaches hilltop, we ride back to the Monedieres massif. We have lunch in the Larfeuil state-owned forest. In this granitic chaos environment, the astonishing abandoned village of Clédat has been rehabilitated by a local non-profit organization. After discovering this part of the French heritage, we ford the Corrèze River again and arrive at the equestrian farm in late afternoon. 

Day 6 - Bruyères and blueberries
Today, we ride through the most wonderful natural green spaces in the Massif des Monedieres. We ride on the Suc au May up to the orientation table located in a Natura 2000 zone. This is the culminating point of our riding tour! If the weather is good, we can also discover the Sancy Massif and the Cantal Mountains located in Auvergne. We ride down again and visit the Monediere organic farm. Here, the farmers value the breeding of Limousines sheep, the picking and transformation of wild blueberries, as well as the vegetable cultivation, respecting this preserved environment. We find space in our saddlebags to bring home local products! After having groomed our horses for the last time, and after a last drink, everyone say goodbye in late afternoon.

Riding guest reviews

"Rewarding trail, nice environment, Laëtitia and Patrice have strong human quality. The horses are well-dressed, voluntary and balanced. Diner is pleasant at the guest table. The guesthouse is really clean and pleasurable to live in. A destination to recommend without moderation!" - Isabelle (2019)

"It was a pleasant riding trail in full nature. Our horses and guide were trustworthy." - Valerie P. (2017)

"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)
