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

#1 of 10 in Tours in Orne
Horseback Riding Tour Outdoor Activity
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.

  • The farm buildings are beautiful. Visit to the stables and the Castle are really to do. A horse show has been proposed where we could see riders in habit present horses and carriages. Pity the national stud have lost their original purpose: reproduction of the horse. Thanks to our guide who was able to share the history of this place.

  • One of the 4 last haras nationaux of France, the stud of the pine is located in Normandy, in a place probably not chosen by chance. The central building (beautiful home) overlooks a huge park where the trotters of all stripes and sizes are pampered. A presentation of the percherons (specialty of the place), and dressage show shows us full of facets of the art of dressage, and including (ultimate poetic moment) free dressage, where the horse is in symbiosis full with his master. The tour of the facility is very interesting, and performed with guides love their job and the place (this is 2 times that I am moving).
