Le Cadre Noir, Saumur

4.4
#1 of 7 in Childrens Museums in Pays de la Loire
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 Although cavalry are now outdated in the military, the school today preserves the skills of these riders as examples of exemplary French horsemanship.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.

  • An impressive site for lovers of horse riding to the French. One hour tour very well conducted by the guide who perfectly explains the origins and operation of the Cadre Noir. The morning demonstration of an hour in the great ride gives a nice overview of the know-how of the squires.
