"Le Pin" national stud, Le Pin-au-Haras
(3.3/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • We came to the stud of the Pin after a beautiful day to make our children discover the area. The site is beautiful. But we have deplored the Organization, too crowded and a lot of waste of time with the queue at reception. Not easy with young children. On the other hand, we want to congratulate staff, not enough in our opinion, including the hospitality and Pierre guide which makes us discover the history and beauty of this place. Similarly the show with horses is beautiful. I still advise you to discover the stud of the pine.

  • Visit very enjoyable. Ability to see twenty horses. Tour simple, effective. The circus show blue very nice but not suitable for young children (under 7 years), and not enough scenes with horses.

  • We had a guided tour which lasts 1 hour. The comments were enriching both in terms of the history of the stud as the knowledge of horses. But these were rare which is disappointing for a national Stud. You can also visit a Museum, a discovery course and attend horse shows.
