In my family, the horse world is a passion. It is therefore natural that we founded our company, a great entrepreneurial mother and daughter adventure offering unique services in the beautiful and royal city of Chantilly, close to Paris. Chantilly is known as the Horse Capital of France and detains an important historical heritage which its royal Château and famous Chaalis Abbey. Thanks to special contacts and a perfect knowledge of the equestrian environment, we organize princely events such as guided tours and dramatized visits with horseback riding in unusual and historic Chantilly sites, always with great care and attention to detail. Our goal is to transport visitors to another time and make their experience memorable. Retrace the history of King Louis XIV by taking part in a fox hunt; attend an equestrian show, animated by stuntmen; visit the royal stables; marvel at period costumes and experience the game of polo on horseback. Whether you are confirmed riders or complete beginners, our horses suit your needs and desires. We also organize gourmet dinners in castles around Chantilly to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of yesteryear. PS: My tours are usually guided by Virginie
