Horses : the best way to travel and discover a country.
Cap Rando, since 1987, a team fond of travels, nature and horses, offers a large variety of rides in south-east of France. The trust and fidelity of our riders prompt us to create new itineraries every year, and to go out of our borders. Our speciality : the Inn to Inn horse trip, which allows to discover a large variety of landscapes. Cap Rando, one of the first organiser of horse trips in France, offers frequent departures as well as a large choice of dates and itineraries.
You will ride an average of five hours everyday. The pace will vary according to the terrain. During the ride, we advise you to take care of your horse, in order to get to know him better, and to create a special relationship with him. At lunch, our assistant will prepare a substantial buffet. A “pastis”, a glass of red wine (don’t abuse it !), a barbecue by a mountain stream, a refreshing salad, a nap before leaving again : as many small pleasures which will add to the friendliness of our rides.
Age range, type of group
In order to make the most of the ride, we require riders to be at ease with walk, trot and canter, in outdoor riding. For riders willing to discover the pleasures of trail riding
in a more progressive way, we have created the “Taste of Provence” ride : a stationary ride allowing guests to become comfortable with the three gaits step by step.
Groups are made out of 6 to 12 riders. This limited amount of riders – often rich of several nationalities – allows each person to make the most of the trip.
Sleeping and meals
In the evening everyone meets around a nice table, to discover local food. Accommodation is in guesthouses, Inns, or small hotels according to rides. There can also be a choice of either rooms or dormitories. We select our accommodation according to their beautiful setting and friendly atmosphere, for riders to enjoy a pleasant stay.
Our trips still include full board accomodation. The price oscillates between 800 and 1 500 $ for the whole week (flights not included in the price)
We will live at our horses’ pace ! Our horses are Spanish or barb mix, adapted to trail riding. Well balanced and wilful, they live in a herd, outdoors, and only trail ride
. They are our guarantee for a relaxing and safe ride.
Our saddles are designed for trail riding and allow a laid back style of riding.
