I spent 3 unforgetable days on horse trail. Everything was perfect : the team, the horses, the visit of the castles. What a chance to arrive in Chambord path on a horse. Horses were kind and generous. Cantering in the Sologne forest will stay a wonderful memory.
A wonderful horse trail ! 4 unforgetable days. Sophie and Ken are true professionnals, who pay attention to the welfare and education of their horses, so as the pleasure of their customers. A superb experience, avec lovely and volonteer horses. I highly recommand Equinature.
Beautiful itinerary and castle, lovely horses, long cantering on good paths and animals along the trip (deers, wild boars...etc). 5 stars for welcoming and organization. Thank you Sophie, Alice and Ken for these three wonderful days.
We spent 3 days visiting the chateaux of the Loire. Excellent moments spent with Ken as our guide and Sophie at stewarship. Horses were awesome and Sophie a fine cook. A very hearty welcome and a wonderful memory ! A high quality trip with true professionals. Highly recommand.
At 4 - 8 Mai we participated in Loire castles riding program. We concider that it was our best travel. Much thanks to Sophie and Ken, much thanks to all riders in the group.
