The whole morning was so well organised. It was so good to have an English speaking guide , especially one who was both knowledgeable and very pleasant. You got a really thorough idea of the workings of the place . The demonstration was really entertaining and our 2 granddaughters were spellbound. Excellent value for money. Ample parking. The complementary drink was a welcome bonus!

a great and very moving show and a guide who explains very well - only small problem you should also be able to have a guide in French - but otherwise everything was perfect until the small glass of aperitif and especially the horses seem to be very well treated

We really loved it. A lot was offered. Definitely worth a trip there. First we learned a lot about the stud and breeding and about the Carthusian horses themselves. You could see everything and also get close to the horses. At the end there was a performance. Simply brilliant - highly recommended!
