Horseback riding in the gardens of the Castle

Enjoy an equestrian experience in the fabulous Palace gardens stepping back in time through the history of Versailles.

Louis XVI loved to hunt on horseback and Marie-Antoinette revolutionised horse riding for women by sitting astride the horse, masculine-style. Horse riding has always been an important part of life at the Palace.

Bring the equestrian passion of the French Royal Court back to life with a two-hour horse ride, suitable for both beginners and experienced riders. Like the King or Queen, you’ll trot along the hunting lanes with a spectacular view of the Grand Canal. You can explore in total confidence under the watchful eye of an expert horseman, passionate about Versailles.
