A renowned equestrian display team, Le Cadre Noir began in 1828 as part of the French calvary division. The team evolved into a training school that carries on the traditions of the Cadre Noir. Although cavalry are now outdated in the military, the school today preserves the skills of these riders as examples of exemplary French horsemanship. At a demonstration, you’ll see the extraordinary builds of Arabian horses in formation, topped with their masters in formidable military uniforms.

I was there for a visit or rather sight-seeing. Not bad, my reward and happiness of that day was to take photographs of the cute ponies at close distance :)
I went there by discovery on their site ..... Maybe once
