Home » Active holidays in the Dordogne » Horse or pony riding

Would you like to go for a horse or pony ride to discover the charming places of the Périgord? Come and enjoy horse riding in our beautiful countryside.

Experienced rider or a little beginner? Several equestrian centres, located 10/15 km from our village offer you initiations and horse or pony rides on the paths of our “Pays des Bastides”. Below, we have selected two of them for you.

For more than 20 years, the equestrian farm “La Haute Yerle”, located in Alles-sur-Dordogne, offers magnificent horse rides along the river for beginners and advanced riders. They adapt the length and difficulty of the tours to your request.

At the “Centre Equestre du Pays Beaumontois”, you can ride a horse or pony and even try archery, sitting on your horse! The little ones, from the age of 3, can take a little pony ride under the close supervision of mum or dad.

Would you rather not step into the saddle, but do you love animals? Here’s a good tip, – moreover – located in Molières!

500m from the centre of the village, you will find the farm “Au pas de l’âne”“. They propose you to leave for a half-day or a whole day on the paths of the “Pays des Bastides”, accompanied by a pack donkey. And yes, even if these donkeys are not equipped to be ridden, they will be able to carry your picnic and make your children happy.

So, choose your companion and go for a nice trip!
