About the horses

Ranch Les 2 Gazelles's cavalry is composed of about twenty horses, mares and geldings, barbs, Arabes-Barbes and thoroughbreds Arabs. The horses are steadfast, voluntary, and endearing horses. They are accustomed to the terrain; some are calm, others more sporting. Some heavier horses are available for strong jumpers.

The Bearded Horse is a rustic breed of North Africa, crossed with Arabian thoroughbred during the 17th century, during the Arab invasions. Appreciated for its extreme resistance and endurance, the beard was used for a long time as a warhorse especially by the formidable Tuareg tribe. Dull and full of energy, the beard easily learns and excels today in many disciplines: endurance, TREC, coupling, and equestrian excursion.

It is located in the Mirleft region, along the wild coast of the great south, in an untouched landscape and within a region with preserved authenticity.
