What about having fun on a stroll along the river Seudre or go for a ride through the Pays Royannais? Or maybe you’d like to introduce your children to horse riding, while enjoying your stay? Or offer them a refresher course?
Émilie, our BPJEPS graduated instructor, will guide you with kindness and friendliness, with respect for the animal and the rider.



We offer riding lessons from age 6 or pony pampering sessions from age 4.

Weather they are initiation or improvement, these lessons will allow your child to progress at her/his own pace on adapted horses and ponies.

Courses take place in the outdoor arena or on the surrounding paths. Different specialties are offered: jumping, dressage, acrobatics, …


School holidays are made for riding!

For beginners, even if they have never ridden before, we offer introductory courses from age 6.

For budding riders with a little experience, we offer courses from age 8.

On the program: rides in the countryside, acrobatics, pony care & grooming, practical and theoretical teaching.



With leisure horse riding in mind, Le Petit Trot Cormillon can set up custom horse hiking.

The beaches of the Gironde estuary, the banks of the Seudre river, the vineyards and surrounding woods give access to country trails that allow rides from one hour to the full day.

With a group or your family, whether it is with one of our horses or ponies, we offer you to go for a ride on country paths, by adapting the pace to your level.

Whatever your riding level be, join us at our regularly scheduled events, or organize your privatized ride.

Our ponies & horses

From Shetland for the little ones, to the horses of any breed for the adults, our animals are selected for their kindness and for your comfort. Their size and character are suitable for both beginners and experienced riders.
