Le Cadre Noir, Saumur

4.4
#1 of 12 in Childrens Museums in Pays de la Loire
A renowned equestrian display team, Le Cadre Noir began in 1828 as part of the French calvary division. The team evolved into a training school that carries on the traditions of the Cadre Noir. Although cavalry are now outdated in the military, the school today preserves the skills of these riders as examples of exemplary French horsemanship. At a demonstration, you’ll see the extraordinary builds of Arabian horses in formation, topped with their masters in formidable military uniforms.

  • This is a unique school for horses and riders, where the animal is as much an athlete as the human being. Excellent!  more »
  • I enjoyed it despite the fact that the tour was conducted in French. There were no English speaking tours the day I was there. I’d recommend it to anyone with interest in horses and history.  more »
