“Happy as a man with a horse…”

LE SUD A CHEVAL, the Luberon has a soul
IFor your horse riding holidays in France, in the land of sunlight and trekking, Le Sud à Cheval offers trail riding in Provence.
Along with our horses, we will guide you to the sound of crickets through scrubland and pinewoods, through lavender fields, from the Luberon Mountains to the Durance River valley.
Dider Mejard, equestrian trail guide Provence France
 All of our horse treks are accompanied by Dider Méjard, equestrian trail guide since 1992.
Didier and his wife Isabelle, who rides Western style,   settled in Provence in 2016 with Mr. Mr Marcel et de Uiyaka, their faithful Camargue horses.
We fell in love with Provence, and especially with the Luberon, a genuine paradise for trail riding. That’s how Le Sud à Cheval, trail riding center, was born in Lauris.
Our treks let you discover the Luberon, heart of Provence : Trail riding in the Luberon to discover the countryside, or simply to admire on horseback the panoramas of the Luberon peaks,  going through the Durance River valley and “Colorado of Provence”, and for the more passionate ones, our bivouac trek sleeping outdoors ! Moments of pleasure while discovering a wild and human Provence!
Discover our horse treks in Provence from 2 to 5 days, and if you are not sure of your horsemanship, you can try a day long ride from Lauris, Luberon, pto get you back in the saddle.
For Didier and Isabelle, trail riding is the nicest way of travelling in a natural element. What a pleasure to discover and ride through Provence with its superb wild and Mediterranean sites, and to disconnect from modern city stress. Provence offers you all this.

For genuine happy trails, we limit the number of riders to 4.

Travelling on horseback is meeting people, joy, high spirit and great moments of friendship…
To insure that spirit, we limit the number of riders to 4, (+ the guide).

Pleasure for the rider and the horse

The horses, of course! We love them and give them  a real horse life.
They are raised outdoors all year long, in a herd with all the necessary care.
They too are trekking professionals, right in their heads, sure and brave . You can ride in complete confidence.
