Programme intro

HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDE IN CAMARGUE
INDICATIVE ITINERARY :

Wednesday: Meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Arles train station or 8 p.m. directly at your hotel in Camargue. Dinner and overnight in a typical hotel.

Thursday: Astouin - Visit of a bull herd - Les Saintes Maries de la Mer. On horseback to a ranch called "manade" in Camargue. After an hour on horseback in the heart of the Camargue, you will arrive at the manade. Mathieu, a passionate guardian (French cowboy), welcomes us in front of the enclosure of one of his herds of bulls. We accompany him on horseback to "grab" the bulls, that is to say push them through the marsh to a sorting enclosure. Then he tells us about the "Camargue race", the breeding methods, the traditions linked to the Camargue bulls, then he sorts a few bulls in front of us and ends his performance by offering us an aperitif "the friendship glass". Picnic prepared by our assistant. Then we leave on horseback to Les Saintes Maries de la Mer. After your installation at the hotel, you can go for a walk in the village streets and do some shopping before dinner in a lively bodega in the village, take a tour of the beach, or enjoy the hotel pool. Night at the hotel.

Friday: A morning ride on the beaches. Nice gallops and walk in the sea. The lunch will be prepared at the hotel by your assistant, and the afternoon you will ride along the Vacares lake: you will discover a lot of flamingos and wild birds on a pleasant trail.
