Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Basse-Normandie / Orne / Le Pin-au-Haras / "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.

Nous avons décidé d'effectuer la grande visite : les écuries suvi du spectacle et visite du musée et ce n'était pourtant pas prévu au programme. Nous avons été enthousiasmés : l'accueil tout d'abord, ... more »We decided to do the Grand Tour: stables suvi of the show and visit the Museum and it was yet not provided for in the program. We were excited: the home first, excellent and very considerate. The very interesting tour despite horrible weather (wind, rain, muddy course... Please allow good shoes or boots). The show then: a real delight that I highly recommend. The artists are of course horses, majestic percherons, small falabella (with a staging adorable - on the danse macabre of C. Saint-Saëns - little riders skeletons on their rump)... we thought bother us or attend a show for children... not at all! One criticism to the Museum: one indicates the trades for the horse lovers: is the horse butcher! you prefer medium rare or to point your horse? In short, we highly recommend! Run after the winter closure.
