The Cadre noir

Heir of a prestigious military history, the Cadre noir has a mission of training and outreaching equitation in the French tradition. 

Developing their original assignments of military origin, the ecuyers of the Cadre noir of Saumur, in their role of instructors, train advanced riding professionals. Experts in their discipline, the ecuyers’ main mission is to transmit technical and theoretical knowledge. They enhance their knowledge by participating in international competitions either as competitors or as coaches. They can rely on research and documentation centers to improve and diversify teaching in both the technical and educational domains. Many taks and research days are held every year on the Saumur site.

Through its galas and public performances in France and abroad, the Cadre noir also contributes to promoting equitation in the French tradition.
