Here at Grandmont we have four horses. We are not an equestrian centre, but competent riders may be able to use the horses to take advantage of the superb riding in the area.
For the complete novice or younger children, you are more than welcome to come and have a go, it could be a ride around the village or the afternoon brushing the horses, its all here and its all very flexible.
Please read below to get to know our horses.
A few steps up the lane is a western riding school. In Ambazac itself, there is a superb large equestrian centre which caters for every equine need. They have their own cross country circuit, indoor arenas, everything you will need. We can arrange bookings for you.
Please bring your own gear if you want to ride, we do have several riding hats and an adult and child back protector you can use.

Marmalade is very gentle and very quiet but also forward going, if you want her to be. She is excellent for beginners as she will just plod around all day and makes you feel very safe. But she is also very good for experienced riders as you can have some fun with her !
Breed: Welsh mountain
Benjie is a very lovely pony suitable for kids and teens to go out on a ride. He loves to go out riding with experienced teenagers but also can be led out alone if a child just wants a little sit on.
