The Higher School of the horse and horse-riding
The Higher School of the horse and horse-riding is unique in France as an educational establishment, a vocational training centre and an institute for research.
This higher school comprises the former Ecole nationale d’équitation – Cadre noir based in Saumur in the Loire Valley and the former school of the national stud of Le Pin in Normandy.
We have a highly qualified team of recognized trainers with matchless equipment and infrastructure for the complementary skills of breeding, horse-riding, carriage driving, saddlery, and farriery. This makes this education centre ideal for stand alone training or as part of a small group to improve the skills and knowledge in every aspect of the horse sector.
