Whether you are an avid rider, a fan of equestrian tourism or just curious about horse riding, Royan is the place for you! Discover the Royan area on horseback thanks to the many paths specially marked out for horse riding. In the forests of La Coubre and Les Combots as well as on the coast of the peninsula, dozens of kilometres of horse riding trails await you. Gallop on the beaches or calm walks under the pines, the landscapes around Royan offer you a multitude of choices for horse riding.
The equestrian centres in Royan offer themed horse rides, introductory courses, baptisms for all ages, as well as short and long rides. The network of paths in the Royan area is carefully marked out to allow independent horse riding: the orange marking, specific to horse riding, indicates the routes to be followed by markers (horizontal line), directional indications (left/right) and prohibitions (cross marking). A green sign showing a foot in a stirrup marks the start of the marked routes. Horse-drawn carriage paths and beaches are not permitted.
With nearly 85 km of marked trails around the route des Cardinaux, 30 km in the forest of La Coubre, more than 10 km on the beach and 20 km of equestrian circuit in the forest of Combots, the country of Royan reserves to the amateurs of horsemanship the most beautiful rides.
