Story 4: Taking a horseback ride on the beach
On horseback on the beach of Villers-sur-MerGregory Wait

Every morning on the beaches of Deauville and at sunset
the horses enjoy the benefits of the sea water
and relax after a training session, a race or a competition.
A thalasso that is highly beneficial for their well-being.
A show but also an unforgettable experience.

A gallop on the wet sand

______________

 

In the heart of one of the world's best breeding grounds, inDeauville's equestrian centers take beginners and experienced riders on horseback rides along sandy beaches. Trotting along the multicolored parasols of Deauville or skirting the Channel villas to Villers-sur-Mer are just some of the itineraries on offer.

Beach walks

Nature hikes

______________

 

Inland, the Pays d'Auge also offers shady paths along green meadows, bordered by white stud farms and half-timbered houses. The instructors vary the pleasures with walks in the Auge countryside at Saint-Pierre-Azif, where you can walk along hilly paths and vast apple orchards. They also show you the sometimes steep coastline on the heights of Mont-Canisy above Bénerville-sur-Mer. In the Marais de Blonville-Villers, we ride between canals and ditches where protected animal and plant species live.
