Night falls at 5 p.m., temperatures drop and gray sets in: no doubt, we are entering winter!

Our pace slows down, and at the same time the horses are full of energy, let’s take them to the forest, their favorite playground!

Treat yourself to a horseback ride, a discovery ride for novices in the heart of the Maisons Laffitte park and in the St Germain forest for riders with a little more practice.

A quarter sheet on the back to keep them warm, your horses will be delighted to warm you up to the rhythm of their different gaits.

A quick brush and their preparation will make you forget that it’s cold outside!

As for you, remember to dress warmly to enjoy this great outdoor adventure. Warm pants and a good coat, comfortable shoes and a pair of gloves, we will provide you with a helmet and mini chaps to complete your outfit.

Come and walk our trails during these winter months, you will be invigorated by this good fresh air and recharged by our beautiful nature.

This activity can allow you to spend unforgettable moments, alone, with family (children from 12 years old are welcome) or with friends.

Back and after taking care of our horses, we will offer you a little coffee or tea with chocolate or succulent biscuits in the club house of our beautiful stable, just to warm up, debrief about your experience and give you the photos we took during the ride.

See you soon

What could be more pleasant than discovering the forest of St Germain and its magnificent autumn colors to the rhythm of the horse’s hooves.

The trails transform into a symphony of warm colors, from bright yellow to scarlet red to deep orange.

The Maisons Laffitte park also offers a whole palette of colors and the leaves fly in the wind.

Whether you are a complete novice on horseback, with a few rides behind you, or an experienced rider, we await you at our stables where horses adapted to everyone will be able to give you a superb experience and create memorable memories.

You will take the time to get to know your horse and create a relationship by spending time with him, brushing him, putting the saddle on his back and giving him a few treats before setting foot in the stirrup and heading to the forest.

A trail ride walking  in the green Maisons Laffitte park with the shimmering colors of autumn, some strides of trot for riders with a little experience and small canters for the more advanced in the beautiful forest paths, on which you may come across a curious little deer.

Open your eyes wide, take a breath of fresh air and come listen to the sound of the golden leaves crunching under the hooves of your faithful steeds.

Horse Holidays France will make you love autumn! Join us on horseback !
