We strongly recommend that you bring your own horse. But if this is not possible at all, we have a limited number of very well educated equine teachers which we give as lease horses for special occasions.
Horsemanship is all about your relationship with your horse. Every horse is different, so only if you bring your own horse you will be able to learn the correct techniques and strategies that fit him of her. Also, as our horses already know everything, you will only learn how to ask for things and not how to teach a horse - which is very different.
Sorry, we can't transport your horse. We do have a transporter, but we don’t have a professional transportation license, so we are only allowed to transport our own horses. Check out these addresses for possible transport:

- L’Auberge de la Tour in Chatillon sur Indre
- Le Crepiot in St. Aignan
- Several restaurants in Loches

During a course your horse will live in a 3.5m x 3.5m box or in one of our guest paddocks (depending on availability and the season.)
Yes, if your horse only stays for a few days and he is used to a special kind of food, please bring it with you so his digestive tract doesn’t get disturbed. We offer good quality hay. For horses who stay for more than 1 week we can work out an adapted feeding plan together with you according to what your horse needs during his stay. Please let us know prior to your horses stay about your horses feeding habits.
