LIMOUSIN - Western Horseback Riding in Corrèze

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 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.

Day 2
This first riding day allow us to have a first contact with our horses. We ride in the south, through varied rural landscapes and discover typical villages in the regional Natural Park, such as Le Tourondel and the bakery covered with straw. At lunch time, we have the picnic we carry riding and, after riding under the Monédières massif, we ride back to the equestrian farm in late afternoon. 

Day 3
Today, we ride in 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 straw in Europe. In the afternoon, we discover other preserved sites, as well as the Col des Géants Gallo-Roman site. 


Day 4
This round tour 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 Corrèze River and wade in it in hot weather. To arrive at the Corrèze River, we ride through the Puy Charrin sectionale 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 falls formed by the river in the Gour du Farandou rocks...


Day 5
After this excursion in the Millevaches hilltop, we ride back to the Monédières 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 French heritage, we ford the Corrèze River again and arrive at the equestrian farm in late afternoon. 

Day 6
Today, we ride through the most wonderful natural green spaces in the Massif des Monédières. 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 Monédière organic farm. Here, the farmers value the breeding of Limousines sheep, the picking and transformation of wild bilberries, 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

"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)

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