Vincent Pawlowski

A career on horseback

Vincent Pawlowski started riding at the age of 10. After a classical school course and a passage through the university of law, he finally opted for a monitorat of horse riding.
He gave his first lessons at the Oxer stable, then located near the Clairefontaine racecourse. Then, it will be then a riding center in Pont-l'Evêque where he teaches several years. A time when he also devoted himself to competition. He won the Normandy Hunter Championship.
Five years ago, he tried his luck with the town hall of Blonville-sur-Mer which launched a call for candidates for the management of its equestrian center. The specifications are clear: open 7 days a week, and a mixed activity between teaching and riding. The equestrian center already has a solid reputation. Vincent has been working to strengthen and develop it with passion ever since. He has just committed himself to continue this beautiful collaboration with Blonville-sur-Mer for five more years.

The center is an institution, its creation dates from the 90s. Eighteen boxes, a covered riding arena, a career and a round pen surround a small chalet dedicated to welcoming the public. Five state-qualified instructors work there full time. Two thirds of the activity is dedicated to teaching for all levels, the remaining third to horseback riding. Finally, a dozen horses are boarded at the center.


Discover inDeauville on horseback

Vincent Pawlowski and his team organize five hundred walks per year. The center benefits from its proximity to nature, between the beach, the Blonville marshes and Mont Canisy. Multiple courses are offered in groups or in individual formulas. The walking activity is very pleasant for the team because it allows to show the most beautiful points of view. It lends itself to exchanges with visitors who like to discover Normandy on horseback. It allows, finally, to renew itself by proposing new and attractive circuits. The equestrian center is now very well adapted to the tourist activity. Its services are flexible from the transportation of the people to the center to their return to the hotel, including personalized tours in the area or further away if necessary.
Note: if the rides on the beach in a group course require the ability to ride, they can be organized individually for beginners. A magical offer for those who want to start in an exceptional setting.

On the teaching side, the team offers pony baptisms and baby pony for the youngest. The teaching continues until the galop 7. The center is affiliated with the French Riding Federation and has been awarded the French Riding School label for the quality of its facilities, its riding, its teaching and its professional welcome. It has also been awarded the "Famille Plus" label, which guarantees a personalized welcome for families, activities and rates adapted to all ages, and children pampered by professionals. Vincent Pawlowski has also just joined the inDeauville network and the working group dedicated to the promotion of horses in the region.
