Ride itinerary - Horses, tack & riding experience
Guides - Accomodation - Dates & rates - Book this ride
Riding in winter in the snow is a rare experience. You will enjoy
very different feelings, and discover an incredible landscape
of frozen lakes and white forests. Our strong horses are perfectly
adapted to this rough environment.
That's why the daily itinerary - between 15 and 20 km - is not
scheduled and depends on the conditions we meet. Opportunities
of experiencing great riding moments are always the target, in
High-Jura as well as in lakes area.
If you come by train, you'll have to arrive one day earlier, to be ready the morning of day 1.
HORSES, TACK AND RIDING EXPERIENCE
The saddles are English trail saddles with little hackamores. Saddle bags are provided.
