Equestrian tourism is an outdoors activity, available to everyone. This hobby can be carried out alone, with friends or family. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, there is always a path to take.
A fun activity indeed, however, there are some basic rules that must be known for the safety and wellbeing of everybody. Plan stop points for a break and also watering places for your horse. Your outfit such as your horse's must also be adapted to the weather.

Every activity should be practiced gradually: don't go on a 50km long hike if you have a new horse or if are an unexperimented rider: make sure the horse and the rider, have the necessary experience for the planned itinerary..

À Garder en tête avant de partir


1,5 m de distance

C'est la distance entre deux équidés permettant une sécurité optimale pour les cavaliers ainsi que leurs équidés.

Une licence

Il vous faut avoir une licence valide avec une assurance.


Un casque homologué

Un casque est indispensable lorsque vous partez. Vous pouvez également l'associé avec une dorsale.

Circuler à droite (ou à gauche suivant les pays) et respectez la signalisation du code de la route.
Il est interdit de circuler sur le trottoir sauf si vous êtes à pieds avec votre monture.

Wearing reflective stripes is mandatory (both rider and horse). The common use is to wear red stripes at the back and yellow at the front. A headlamp can also be a very useful tool.

Common courtesy is required even while on a horse. Go back to a slow walk and keep some distance when meeting riders coming the other way. Greeting and asking if you can pass the rider is always appreciated.

Before leaving, it is recommended that you put a red ribbon on your horse's tail. This shows to everyone that your horse can be unpredictable and that they should be careful when getting too close.

It is mandatory to carry identification cards for horses and riders 

Always carry a small amount of money, you never know what is going to happen. A map, a roadbook, and a charged cellphone are required. It is better if you can also take with you a string, a whistle, and a hoof pick. Make sure to carry with you a first-aid kit for yourself and your horse.

It is forbidden for riders to go into the undergrowth, private properties, and cultivated lands. 

If you on your own, remain reachable by phone and prevent other persons that you are going on a ride alone and inform them of your route.
