GUEST REVIEWS
Fabienne - March 2024

Very friendly welcome. No problem with security issue. I rode One the first day and a mare whose name I forgot the second (ex broodmare broken in at 10 years old...) they were both impeccable and adorable! I appreciated the comfort of the upholstery.
I appreciated the home cooking of my hostesses who ideally adapted to my vegetarian diet. Very pleasant accommodation with every comfort.
Great first trail riding experience!
The guide knew how to adapt the pace and route to my aspirations and my level.
Sharing discovery of the surroundings thanks to the magnificent viewpoints, sharing equally pleasant homemade picnics!
Cap Rando services and website: Very good ! Richness of the website content ...
