The Cadre Noir is a French institution. Evening performance was enjoyed but my knowledgeable clients and would be very much enjoyed by the general public. Great introduction to the beauty the talent of these wonderful animals.

Unfortunately there was no horse show on the day we visited but there was nothing on their website to tell us this. The lovely guide tried to speaking English for us but a trip around the stables just wasn't the same.

A great show (one of the weekly morning shows). It was fascinating to see the development in the training of the young horses. A walk round the stables afterwards meant you could get up close to the horses. Thoroughly enjoyable morning.

It was very interesting hour to explore this high-classic and traditional training center. Our guide was great. She spoke between English for us. We got to pet lots of horses :)
