agence de voyage a chevalCap Rando was created in 1987 by Didier SIMONOT: « I started riding at the age of 7 in an equestrian center near Paris. At the age of 12, my parents offered me a horse ride in Lozère: I then discovered the pleasure of combining my two passions: horses and travel. Quickly, I was lucky that my parents offered me a horse after our installation in Provence. I then decided to get out of the arenas and trails around the center, by proposing to friends to travel with our horses. Until the age of 18, I organized trail rides with friends all over Provence, and I get my equestrian guide licence, mandatory in France, and started to hire my services beside my computer activity ... In 1987, at 26, I decided to share and live of my passion by buying a property in the Luberon to create Cap Rando ! Since then, Cap Rando has grown: becoming the leading organizer of horse riding trips in Provence, one of the leaders in France, and one of the oldest horse travel agencies ! After years and thousands of kilometers on horseback, Cap Rando is developing around my two sons and a guide team, friends: all passionate about horses and travel, but also about sharing and conviviality with our fellow riders ! »

Rider reviews


Suzanne - Majorca – April 2018

I have just had a horse riding holiday in Majorca and the agency service was exceptional. My contact at Cap Rando was able to deal with the unexpected with efficiency and professionalism, and it was thanks to Didier that I was able to have a very good stay, a big thank you! This is the 3rd horse travel agency that I try and it is by far the best, I highly recommend!


Sandy - Tuscany – September 2019

Overall, Cap Rando is an excellent company to travel with. One improvement could be in the pre-ride communication. Once the PDF packet arrived a few months before hand, there was no additional communication. I would have liked to get an occasion email saying my trip is coming up and here's something important to remember. It helps to build excitement for the trip and to keep Cap Rando front and center.


Madison – Provence – Aout 2019

Enfin des professionnels équestre qui comprennent les cavaliers en extérieur, vous avez des super randonnée dépaysement magnifique, pas besoin d'aller au bout du monde....nous avons tous sur place ! à très vite


Nathaly – Camargue – May 2018

I booked a riding weekend in the Camargue and I highly recommend Cap Rando. The organization was top, the service remarkable and the people very accommodating.


Valéry – Multiple Rides

 I started my first ride with Caprando after a year of horse riding, the last as confirmed rider. This organization is extraordinary.
I found there an excellent welcome, a choice of varied and original destinations and a very great professionalism of the guides who are concerned with comfort, not only of the riders, but also of their mount. Safety is constantly reminded throughout the rides. At each level a suitable mount, generous horses, well in their heads and who go everywhere. I highly recommend !
