The horses


Suzie is a Percheron cross. She is an experienced 12 years old horse and is 155 centimeters. She has amazing manners and is very quiet and gentle. Although she is perfect for beginners and novice riders, the more experienced riders will find her exciting and forward going when needed. She is highly trained in western riding and voice commands so perfect for both novice and experienced riders.


Badger is a seven years old Irish cob. He is very quiet with perfect manners and just over 150 centimeters. Although Badger is a perfect gentleman, he would be best suited to a more experienced rider. He is however perfect in every way, loves the forests and the walks and is happy leading or being behind.

Other horses are available to hire for 90 Euros per week, payable to livery next door.

Horses are insured for Liability, please ensure you have adequate insurance and have told your holiday insurance you will be partaking in horse riding activities.

Experienced riders

Saint Moreil Gite has two horses, they like one of them to ride with one guest at a time. If you are a single rider then you can have a horse for your stay, if you are more than one rider then you can take turns riding or hire an extra horse for 90 EUR for the week. For Saint Moreil Gite, riding is not about speed but the scenery and pleasure of being on a horse. They ride daily around 10 a.m., although this is flexible to fit in with you.

Novice riders, children, and parents

If you are a novice rider or inexperienced rider then you are welcome to come and get some riding experience. All riding will be tailored to your suitability and at Saint Moreil Gite discretion. The most important thing for Saint Moreil Gite is safety and enjoyment. You will be able to be guided through the forests and sample some amazing off-road riding.

For young children or parents, you or your child can come and get to feed and help with the horse, have a sit on them, maybe a lead around the forests. Youngsters can experience the good and bad of having horses, bringing them in and out, mucking out, feeding and watering, moving the muck, washing, and brushing and saddling up. If youngsters and riders and are confident they can be led by or maybe even go out on rides depending on their ability.


These horses are part of Saint Moreil Gite family and they hope people would treat them as they do their own pets. Saint Moreil Gite once had incidents of the horses coming back cut, bruised, and exhausted. Saint Moreil Gite are happy hackers and if your idea of riding is similar to Saint Moreil Gite's then you will enjoy what they have to offer.

In exceptional circumstances, riders may be able to ride together but this is at your discretion and is only available to experienced riders. Saint Moreil Gite hope that any horse lover will understand why these rules are in place. Please ask Saint Moreil Gite if you wish to ride together prior to booking.
