THE EQUIDAYS

From October 23rd to 27th, 2019

For 5 days, the Calvados department will be celebrating horses with about thirty events open to everybody.

From Wednesday 23rd to Sunday 27, 2019, the Equidays are back, six years after the first edition. The Calvados department has decided to organize this event every two years to allow anybody to live a unique experience, as close as possible to horses, across Calvados.

This event has become a must for riding lovers, both amateurs and professionals: horses are the essence of Calvados, where licence holders are 9,000, riding clubs 150 and racecourses 8. This excellence sector in Normandy contributes to the identity of the region and has long been integral part of this land where breeding and horse races are the protagonists, a welcoming land for a sector that is favourable to research, innovation and development. This French department, based on a rich heritage and assets, believes in a widely acclaimed project: giving a new life to the Equidays.

The Equidays, an event made of races, professional and cultural events, shows, hiking sessions, sales and open days, will be celebrating the equestrian sector with about thirty events.
