La Baule, the city of the lovers of horses
Are you passionate about horses or have you always wanted to try horseback riding? Do your children feel like signing up for a pony club? La Baule is the city for you! It's no coincidence that one of its most beautiful streets is called L'Allée Cavalière ... Large and lined with tall trees, between the beach and the forest, it offers one of the most pleasant equestrian promenades of the city.
You will find in La Baule and its surrounding areas many riding clubs, where you can choose the perfect companion for your trips. Most also offer ponies for the little ones. The town of La Baule has long been equipped with several equestrian facilities: the François-André stadium, the Cavalière path, as well as the Platanes riding school.
All the landscapes are offered to you for your walks: beaches, marshes, forest. If the beach of Pornichet is forbidden to horses during the summer, La Baule is open to riders in the morning until 9h and in the evening from 8pm, from May 1st to August 15th (ditto for the beach of La Baule). Turballe). You have to reach the beach by avenue des Hirondelles or avenue Victor Hugo and evolve very close to the water - with the exception of the beach of Benoît, to avoid disrupting the deposits of shells. Galloping on a deserted beach, at a time when the sun is just rising, is not that the best way to start a day?
