France is the ideal location for horse riding whilst on holiday with its beautiful and unspoilt countryside. Each region has its own character, history, cuisine and architecture. You can ride along beaches in Northern France or alongside chateaux in the Loire Valley. Or perhaps marvel at Champagne's vineyards from the saddle or experience the sights and smells of Provence on horseback. Some holiday properties offer riding on-site whilst others have stables nearby. Just ask owners whose properties include horse riding/trekking in their amenities how to organise riding and trekking as part of your French holiday.
