Écurie du Haut Languedoc - Foreigners welcome

Horse riding has a strong effect on the whole person.

The combination of horse movements and rider effort, generates an irreplaceable sensation of comfort. 

To us, Riders who ride for fun and relax are as important as those looking for personal improvement and competition.

We want to share with you our passion for horses and riding.

We will be honoured to greet you soon.

Let's invite you at Ecurie du Haut Languedoc

in the Parc naturel regional du Haut Languedoc.  The Centre équestre de La Salvetat is situated at the outskirt of a centennial forest, crossed by “Natura 2000” rivers, with four pure blue lakes nested in it. The mild climate is a perfect mix between Atlantic and Mediterranean influences giving the opportunity to ride all year long in optimum conditions. The Ecurie du Haut Languedoc is FFE approved (French federation of horse riding) and our riding school is proud of its happy and well trained horses and ponies. Our team is fully experienced and professional. Their main priorities are your enjoyment and safety with the achievement of your riding ambitions.

Training and lessons

We are happy to offer a wide palette of riding courses adapted to all levels and ability from “how to ride” first lesson  to dressage and jumping, hacking out across the best riding place in south of France with beautiful countryside right on our doorstep.

Riding lessons

Designed and prepared for riders of all abilities. 

A short course can be the perfect introduction to the world of riding or, for those who have ridden before, a great way to build on experience already gained.

Whether you are a beginner, a recreational rider or a professional looking for the last level of improvement, the Centre équestre de La Salvetat has a riding lesson to fit you.  Our team of friendly, professional instructors and quality horses will make it an unforgettable experience. Your lesson will include riders of a similar ability with similar ambitions but your instructor will ensure that you receive individual attention.

Others, Training hacks

Your instructor will train you while hacking to help improve your control.  A challenging and enjoyable, alternative to arena courses. Requiring your horse’s attention on the track is more demanding than it is in the arena!  You will get a deeper knowledge about distances, control, changing pace and so.Ride hacks

If you are an experienced rider you may join a small group of riders and, with a knowledgeable instructor, explore the magnificent riding place of the “Forêt domaniale du Soulié”.  The rides are varied, and the surrounding nature changes beautifully with each and every season. Your ride will never become tedious. Riding in the open field also offers better opportunities to see what actual riding is, and it remains the nicest way to improve your ability.


Our horses

Our professional experience shows that the key to successful riding education is the welfare of the horses. The comfort of horses and ponies is essential, because healthy horses are keen to work and easy to ride. We look attentively for kind and safe horses, naturally well-mannered.  Keeping them at the top of their physical and mental condition needs a great dedication from our team.  The stables are meticulously mucked out and each horse is given a clean and comfortable litter.

They also spend time outside to ensure they remain calm, happy and tidy. 

We love our horses and we are sure you will too! 

Private lessons

For those who would like more personalised and intensive instruction we can give private riding lessons. And if you would like to put into practice or test your knowledge we offer a full programme of events and activities to our riders. You and your instructor will work closely and the lesson will be adapted to your skills and objectives. If you would like to enrol on any of our courses, the easiest way is to phone or e_mail us.

Semi-private rides or lessons are also available if you specifically wish to ride with a friend. They can  include some time in the arena or be based solely on the riding tracks. 


Our top priority is to ensure that all the horses in our care are fit and happy.  We make sure that they are exercised and schooled as required. We can take care for various aspects of their welfare such as catering for specific dietary needs, worming, shoeing and arranging for veterinary care. Our team is dedicated to offer support and advice, enabling you to fully enjoy the time you spend with your horse. The Ecurie du Haut Languedoc Livery system is the most flexible way and solution for those with time constraints who can’t exercise their horse on a daily basis. It is also valuable for retired horses. Every imaginable option (field, boxes, stable, exercising, veterinary, food …) can be considered to perfectly fit your requirements and budget. The easiest way is to call the Centre to have your wishes evaluated.
