"Le Pin" national stud, Le Pin-au-Haras

(3.7/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Louis XIV wanted to study and develop horse-breeding in France, so he and his ministers came up with the idea for "Le Pin" national stud. The site was chosen and built during the reign of his son, Louis XV--earning the name Versailles of the Horse. Despite regime changes and wars, the site has continued its mission to support the study and breeding of horses. Today, the government runs this, as well as a historical monument. Visitors can take a guided tour and visit the horse museum housed in a historic stable.

  • Our son who is preparing a C A P healer equine to loved the tour. Very nice this visit, shame the guide was not a very powerful voice, it lacks details on the different professions, such as the role of the groom, the blacksmith maraichal, manufacturing of saddles etc...

  • Very nice site but the home leaves to be desired! We paid a visit to school group with a reservation, the absentees have been charged. However all the other institutions that have received us, not charged us that students present. Charge the absent, of the never seen! And yet the stud wants to develop tourism... In addition, some picnic tables for groups would be welcome.
