The Opal Coast is an equestrian’s dream with excellent stables and beautiful countryside to explore...
Did you ever picture yourself on a horse galloping across miles of empty sandy beaches before cooling off in the waves? Have you ever seen yourself going for a hack on lush green hills and open fields on a trail that takes you through the countryside and sleepy villages of Northern France? Ever thought about pony trekking through pine forests dappled with sunlight and listening to the birds and bees in the still of the day?
Have you ever fancied saddling up at a top-notch stables for horse-riding lessons or a class in show jumping? Ever thought about watching the Boulonnais horses, a local breed of heavy horses, as they take part in the annual Wissant to Paris Fish Race? Does it all sound like a dream? Then stay at Le Moulin in the Pas-de-Calais where there is a wonderful selection of equestrian action just on the doorstep...
As soon as you reach the Le Moulin, in its peaceful country setting, you’re halfway to making the dream real. And, the best thing is that this equestrian paradise is just 45 minutes from Eurotunnel and the ports at Calais. Ask at reception or the local tourist office in Desvres about the best riding stables in the area and the recommended trails in the countryside.
If it’s riding on the beach you fancy, enquire about the excellent horse-riding from Le Touquet and Hardelot – you’ll be spoilt for choice. We want you to get the most out of your horse-riding holiday and that means looking after you! All our rooms are en-suite with tons of hot water so you can soak away your aches and pains after a day in the saddle. Later, you can relax in our restaurant and enjoy a scrumptious traditional meal with sommelier-picked wines.
