Les Écuries de Milhac de Nontron first opened in 2005. It is affiliated with the "Fédération Française d'Équitation", and is officially classified as an "École Française d'Équitation, Poney club et Cheval club de France".

At our friendly stables, our main concern is the wellbeing of our animals. The horses and ponies at our centre benefit from the opportunity to graze year-round on our 50 hectares of pasture land. They live in herds, so riders at our centre can be sure our animals are calm, sociable and well-adjusted. This offers a guarantee of safety for those learning to ride at our centre.

All our animals are rigorously selected to ensure our customers get the most out of the joys of horse riding. We pick our horses and ponies according to their personalities and then train them specifically to operate in a schooling environment.

Leisure Activities

Learning to gallop takes time as each individual animal's personal rhythm must be learnt and understood. All are welcome to come and ride every week, either just for fun or to train in preparation for their exams.

Step by step, they will become more and more confident and autonomous around horses and ponies until they can (still under supervision) ride with their mount out into the woods, or join us on one of our long summer walks. What could be better than going out for a long ride with friends in such a beautiful setting...?
