More information on our CAP RANDO "ORGANIZATION" rides:
Riding days: You will ride an average of five hours everyday. The pace will vary according to the terrain. During the ride, we advise you to take care of your horse, in order to get to know him better, and to create a special relationship with him. At lunch, our assistant will prepare a substantial buffet. A “pastis”, a glass of red wine (don’t abuse it !), a barbecue by a mountain stream, a refreshing salad, a nap before leaving again : as many small pleasures which will add to the friendliness of our rides.
Accommodation: In the evening everyone meets around a nice table, to discover local food. Accommodation is in guesthouses, Inns, or small hotels according to rides. There can also be a choice of either rooms or dormitories. We select our accommodation according to their beautiful setting and friendly atmosphere, for riders to enjoy a pleasant stay.
Guides: Guides are certified, most of them coming from our equestrian guide school, and are friends who made a job of their passion. They apply themselves to share this passion and the pleasure of trail riding. Whether on the Alps or on Camargue beaches, amongst odorant thyme, rosmary and lavander, our guides insure riders safety in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All our guides speak English.
Horses & Tack: Our travel companions ! We will live at our horses’ pace ! Our horses are Spanish or barb mix, adapted to trail riding. Well balanced and wilfull, they live in a herd, outdoors, and only trail ride. They are our guarantee for a relaxing and safe ride. Our saddles are designed for trail riding and allow a laid back style of riding.
Riders: In order to enjoy your ride, we require riders to be at ease with walk, trot and canter, in outdoor riding. For riders willing to discover the pleasures of trail riding in a more progressive way, we have created the “Taste of Provence” ride : a stationary ride allowing guests to become comfortable with the three gaits step by step. Groups are made out of 5 to 12 riders. This limited amount of riders – often rich of several nationalities – allows each person to make the most of the trip.
