To go horse riding in Provence will be a delight for the senses. There are many riding centres and stables in Provence, large and small, from which you can trek out to explore areas of golden forests, olive and almond groves and, at springtime, fields of flowers. Provence is particularly well known for its lavender and the Lavender Road on horse back could well be on your riding short list. For a different terrain, try the Colorado Provencal so called due to the ochre coloured rock formations. If wine is your thing, combine the two and take a wine tour on horseback.
