LIMOUSIN - Short horse ride in Corrèze - Western style

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 a thousand of paths running across millennial landscapes... This is idyllic scenery to get initiated to western riding or for an itinerant riding tour in full nature if you are an advanced rider.

DISCOVER WESTERN RIDING OR NOVICE RIDERS

Day 1
Arrival in late afternoon at the equestrian farm. Then, you go in your accommodation. You have a first contact with the environment and dinner in a guest table to get to know your guide and the other riders.

Day 2 - Ethological and Western riding
We start our week-end by associating riders and horseswith an original approach accompanied by your guide. After, we will acquaint ourselves with the western preparation and equipment of the horses with an introduction session to western and ethological riding which will end by a first trail. In the afternoon, we will leave to do a loop in the Massif des Monédières which will lead us, through undulated paths, to an orientation table of the Col de Lestards. From fields to undergrowths, oak trees or douglas, following vast areas of Landes classified ZNIEFF, we will have the opportunity to discover, from the first day, typical landscapes of the Natural Regional Park of Millevaches. On the way back to the equestrian centre, our journey will allow us to see the Gallo-Roman site of the Col des Géants.

Day 3 - Massif des Monédières

We will spend our second day hacking at the heart of the Massif des Monédières, to discover even more the natural environment of this territory : the blueberry and heather landes and the holly beechwood. From one small valley to the other, we will bypass the Puy Baladour to climb up to the orientation table of the Sucau May, from where, with a nice weather, we will be able to see further than the Millevaches plateau, the Cantal mounts and the Massif od Sancy in Auvergne! Our progression will lead us through the magnificent Landes of the Natura 2000 zone of the Monédières and the majestic beechwoods... Back at the equestrian farm, we will, one last time, take care of our horses, then it will be time to say "goodbye".

(The itinerary can be adjusted. The second riding day can includ two loops with lunch at the equestrian farm)

Horse ride opent to everyone, even beginners: the ideal option to discover ethological and western riding or to share your passion with less experimented loved ones!



ITINERANT RIDE INTO THE MASSIF OF MONEDIERES

Day 1
Arrival from 5pm at the equestrian farm. You can get installed in your bedroom. You have a first contact with the environment and dinner in a guest table to get to know your guide and the other riders.

Day 2 - Ethology and western
We start our stay with a half-day of introduction to our approach of ethology and western riding. Your guide will pick up the right horse for you and explain everything. Then, you learn how to prepare our horses and how to put the horse’s western equipment, before having a first Western lesson in the closed ground. The morning will end up on an outside ride. From the first day, we ride from alveolus to alveolus, from a small valley to another to feel the quiet atmosphere and typical Monedieres landscapes. In the afternoon, according to what riders prefer, we can ride on the paths to the House of Land in the village of Chaumeil (we can bring some local products in our saddlebags), or in the opposite direction to the Col des Géants Gallo-Roman site.

Day 3 - Multi centenary villages
Today, for the second loop, we ride towards the south of the Monedieres Massif, through varied rural landscapes to discover villages with thick granite walls, typical in Millevaches Regional Natural Park. The saw-tooth roofs, sometimes still covered with straw, will intrigue us! After a picnic with our horses by the pond, we ride on undulating side roads. In the afternoon, we turn off to the north to get closer the main water holes and reach the equestrian farm.

Day 4
For the last day, we ride in the heart of the Monedieres massif, to know these natural landscapes better, typical in this region: the blueberries and heather moorlands. We have our lunch break alongside the Ganezande pond, a treasury of the nature nestled under the Massif. Then, we circumvent the Freysselines Circus and ride on the Suc au May. If the weather is good, we can also discover the Sancy Massif and the Cantal Mountains located in Auvergne! To ride down to the Monediere organic farm, where they highlight market gardening, limousine sheep breeding and wild bilberries harvest. We ride back to the equestrian farm and groom our horses for the last time before leaving around 6pm.
