Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Basse-Normandie / Orne / Le Pin-au-Haras / Tours / "Le Pin" national stud
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. Plan to see "Le Pin" national stud and other attractions that appeal to you using our Le Pin-au-Haras holiday planner.

Séverine argentinVery good very clean home guide that explains animation comedy
Cédric lerouvilloisSuperb site, guided tour and show on top, very good after noon here
Serge LouryVery beautiful place in all weather. Always stop on the way back.
Caroline DeniseVery beautiful place. Friendly guide. Show pleasant. Unfortunately we would have liked to see more horses but it wasn't the right time (late August)
Kylian MoisanVery 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.
