Le Cadre Noir, Saumur

4.5
#2 of 25 in Museums in Maine et Loire
Children’s Museum Specialty Museum
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 Although cavalry are now outdated in the military, the school today preserves the skills of these riders as examples of exemplary French horsemanship.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.

  • It was a childhood dream that come true! I think it's a unique place that is worth to be visited. The one hour tour seemed a bit short for me who am a fan. But the guides are friendly and open to all questions as well as a more detailed explanation for beginners. The show was just beautiful and very moving. It's crazy what we can do to a horse.
