Welcome to Douarnenez's equestrian center

Lessons

children lesson
For children as well as adults, we offer one hour lessons, from Monday to Saturday, grouped by experience level. It takes about 30 minutes before and after the lesson to take care of your mount.
  • 4-5 years old :
    • the one hour session includes the preparation of the poney
    • parents must be present :
      • the first few sessions, to handle the poney until the child acquires enough confidence to work autonomously
      • on every ride
    • the objective is that the child rides their poney alone after a few sessions
  • 2-3 years old :
    • there is about 20 to 30 minutes of poney riding during the one hour session
    • parents must be present during the whole session
