A career on horseback

Vincent Pawlowski started riding a horse at the age of 10. After a classic school career and a passage through the law university, he finally opted for horse riding tutoring.
He gave his first lessons at the Oxer stable, then located near the Clairefontaine racecourse. Then, it will then be a riding center in Pont-l'Evêque where he teaches for several years. An era in which he also devoted himself to competition. He notably 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 walks. The equestrian center already has a solid reputation. Vincent has endeavored to comfort and develop it ever since with passion. He has just committed to continue five more years of this great collaboration with Blonville-sur-Mer.

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


Discover inDeauville on horseback

Vincent Pawlowski and his team organize five hundred walks a year. The center benefits from close proximity to nature between the beach, the Blonville marshes and Mont Canisy. Multiple routes are offered as a group or in individual à la carte formulas. The walks activity is very pleasant for the team because it allows to show the most beautiful points of view. It lends itself to discussion with visitors who like to discover Normandy on horseback. Finally, it allows you to renew yourself by offering new, original and attractive circuits. The equestrian center is now very suitable for tourist activity. Its services are flexible from the transportation of people to the center until their return to the hotel via personalized routes on the territory or further if necessary.
To know: if the walks on the beach in group lessons require to know how to ride a horse, they can be organized individually for beginners. A magical offer for those who wish to start in an exceptional setting.

In terms of education, the team offers pony baptisms and baby ponies for the little ones. The teaching then continues until gallop 7. The center is affiliated with the French Equestrian Federation and has received the French School Equitation label for the quality of its facilities, its cavalry, its lessons and his professional welcome. It has also received the Famille Plus label which guarantees a personalized welcome for families, entertainment and prices suitable for all ages, from children pampered by professionals. Vincent Pawlowski has also just joined the inDeauville network and the working group dedicated to the influence of the horse on the territory.
