Matinales at the Cadre Noir

France’s most illustrious riding school reveals the know-how of French equestrian tradition by offering a glimpse behind the scenes of its grand arena during the Matinales at the Cadre Noir.

From April to October, the Cadre Noir equerries invite visitors to discover the intimate world of their equestrian training during their daily sessions. Watch the work in the arena of young jumping riders and horses aiming to join the elite corps, including warm-up, preparation for the jump, long-rein exercises... The whole spectacle is accompanied by commentary by an equerry who points out the principals of academic riding. The Matinales at the Cadre Noir are an exceptional opportunity to observe the unique bond that unites an equerry and his mount. By choosing a Duo ticket, you can prolong the experience with a guided tour of the stables and tack room in the afternoon. Through its different shows and experiences, the Cadre Noir of Saumur pursues its aim of showcasing and transmitting the excellence of French traditional horse riding, which is today listed as UNESCO World Heritage.
