1/ Cheval Nature Magazine
Find all of the useful information for your equestrian walks and hikes. This magazine, published by the French National Committee for Equestrian Tourism, promotes equestrian tourism and also many outdoors equitation disciplines.
Cheval Nature Magazine tells you all the information you may need: what equestrian tourism is, the recommended equipment, outdoors equestrian disciplines, meetings of the equestrian tourism area, itineraries, etc.
This magazine is a real tool for the outdoor rider. A dedicated website will soon be online.

A calendar of equestrian tourism events is available online on the SIF.
What is more, we recommend subscribing to the green permit (licence verte) while you go on walks or hikes. This subscription will allow you to go without worrying: you are covered if anything happens, participate in DUM's event, you can receive a certificate (degree) and also take breaks in equestrian centers. You can subscribe to the license/permit in the affiliated centers. It costs 10€ and is valid for 30 days.
