Horse-riding in the Pyrenees

Horse-riding near Puilaurens

One of the most interesting and beautiful horse-riding trips you will ever do with the combination of superb rides and stunning scenery in an area with a fascinating history.

Relax in one of the many sleepy bars as you sip a glass of local Corbières wine and take in the breathtaking views.

Set in the low foothills of the French Pyrenees, the Cathar trail links together a series of ancient ruined castles built by a religious sect against the 13th century Albigensian crusades.

The Aude department of France is an area of deep gorges and waterfalls, sun-drenched vineyards and forests of beech and pine, of jagged mountains and gentle green pastures. The scent of wild thyme, rosemary and lavender linger in the air as you brush past on your horse and the Mediterranean climate means reliable sunshine throughout the year.
