Le Cadre Noir Behind The Scenes


Cadre Noir Behind The Scenes - horse training



Come and explore Le Cadre Noir, one of the most prestigious horsemanship schools in the world, and take a behind-the-scenes look through a private, fun-filled guided tour.



If you and your family love horses, then this is the place to be, and something you won’t want to miss during your family holiday in the Loire Valley. And even if you are not so much into horses, Le Cadre Noir is such a prestigious place that a visit here becomes almost a must do.

Le Cadre Noir is France’s top horsemanship school, and ranks as one of the most prestigious ones in the world. For military purposes or leisure (some Olympic champions are from Le Cadre Noir), the art of horse training has been passed on from the day of the school’s creation in 1828. The riders are recognizable by their black uniforms, which gave the name to the school.

Follow your private guide as he/she takes you inside the heart of the school, from the main performance halls to the smaller restricted access training halls. During this 2 hour visit, you will also pass by the workshop where the blacksmiths work on the horseshoes, the infirmary and many other facilities which have helped Le Cadre Noir become so famous.

Needless to say that horses are to be seen everywhere, and you will get to pet quite a few!

Our Le Cadre Noir Behind The Scenes experience is a great way to learn more about the art of horse riding and get a chance to see a true iconic school with a great cultural legacy.
