Horseback riding is a sport and leisure activity. Apart from the relationship with the animal which is exceptional, the many disciplines of riding allow on foot, and on horseback of course, to accompany you and to evolve with you according to your needs.

My daughter has been riding there since she was 5 years old. Good club, good atmosphere and well treated horses. The club is on the edge of the forest, ideal for horse riding.

Do you have a few questions? here are some pointers:
  • What is horseback riding?
    Horseback riding is both a hobby, a sport and an art. It all depends on the practice, the discipline and the level exercised. It is an activity where the Man and the equine (pony or horse) are partners and evolve together. Originally the horse had mainly a utilitarian role, hunting, war, in the fields... Today the disciplines practiced in horse riding are numerous such as dressage and show jumping without ignoring the ride.
  • What are the differences between a pony and a horse?
    The main difference between a pony and a horse is their size. Classification of ponies: category A: less than 1.07 m category B: between 1.08 and 1.30 m category C: between 1.31 and 1.40 m category D: between 1.41 and 1.48 m Beyond the category D ponies, we can speak of a "big pony" or "a small horse".
  • From what age can my child start riding a pony?
    At the Equine Club of Versailles, we have several categories to best suit the child. From 3 years old we offer half-hour sessions to work motor skills with and on a shetland (small pony under one meter). Then from 4-5 years old, the sessions are one hour, including two 15-minute sessions dedicated to the preparation of the pony.
  • What equipment do you need to start riding?
    During the first sessions, simple pants that are both flexible and resistant are suitable (jeans) and a pair of rain boots. To protect your head, a helmet or a bomb (compulsory) will be lent to you by the club if necessary.
  • What are the most practiced disciplines?
    The classic riding disciplines are dressage, show jumping, and cross country. But there are many others such as ethology, TREC (Competitive Equestrian Hiking Techniques). and then there is also horse ball, archery on horseback etc...
  • When and how should I register for the Club Hippique de Versailles?
    Ideally to ensure a place and a time that suits you in a recovery corresponding to your level (beginner / Gallops x), it is recommended that you register from May, and no later than the 1st week of September. Contact us directly and come join us at the reception.
