horse riding in camargue, france

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a September trip to the south of France. I'm interested in a short, 1 or 2 hour riding excursion into the Camargue in France. There isn't much on the topic on this forum ( I searched for "horse" in France and didn’t get a lot).

My questions:
1) In popular guidebooks, rates are cheap – 13 E for 1 hour, 21-25 E for 2 hours. This can't be for real…or can it?
2) I've found limited web presence for short riding tours like this, even searching wanadoo.fr. Does anyone know of any riding websites that are NOT for multi-day vacations?
3) I've read that these places dot the roadway from the coast to Arles. Are reservations necessary, or are they so common that horses are always available? (I am a planner!).
4) Are these rides enjoyable? I've only ridden a horse once before, when I was 13 (a decade ago) – as part of a cruise ship tour in Mexico. The horses were tired, and I just felt sorry for them. The other person with me has never ridden before, but is very excited at the prospect.

Any advice or answers will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
faile
