Le Cadre Noir, Saumur

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 Although cavalry are now outdated in the military, the school today preserves the skills of these riders as examples of exemplary French horsemanship.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

    This show allows to discover the functioning of dressage, the description of the figures. The framework, in the big ring, is perfect for that. I just note that it is only nice ladies that have placed us and that in the show in there what a lady. Riders not overrated, but it would take to evolve.

    We attended the public representation of the black frame with our two children of 6 years and 1 year. I liked them. All numbers are very neat and comments on-line allow us to appreciate the complexity of the maneuvers. It lasts an hour and we don't really have the time to get bored.

    The National School of horsemanship is the tenant of this beautiful place and there is also the "Cadre Noir" taking French riding. You can attend some of the Cadre Noir and the Squires show dates in the magnificent Grand carousel. Not otherwise hesitate to (only) guided tour of downtown that's truly worth it. Tours are led by guides and quality very aware of life and the history of the school but also of riding and horse. A visit to any lover of horses.

    Wonderful site for novices as for riding enthusiasts to discover. Quality tours. Public commentary and recovery of quality, that allows to better understand the daily work of the Squires friendly. All were made with 3 young children who were also able to enjoy the visit. And of Spades playground picnic on-site. Rooms clean and comfortable.

    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.
