Unfortunately we were not impressed by of the tour. The nature is beautiful, the horses gentle and well treated, but as experienced riders, two hours walking in one line, 30 sec of galop and troting is quiet a disappointment especially because it was said very clearly that there Would be plenty of it. This kind of riding might be an experience for beginners.

Visited Les Arnelles this morning for a two hour group ride on the Camargue horses. We had a great time.

Arrived slightly late due to traffic but this was not a problem, we were still made to feel very welcome (after giving our apologies). The group was made up of five people, two of which were of experienced ability and were given the option to go off and gallop on a couple of occasions whilst the lesser experienced trotted. Silvie, the leader was very good, trying to give us insight into the area. She did not speak much English (much better than my French) but the main points were clear and we got the jist of what she was saying.

We rode through the marshes, some shallow waters and had a ride on the beach, which was wonderful. There was a photographer who take some lovely pictures whilst on the ride. All of the horses were very well behaved, well looked after and I would certainly go back and recommend a visit to anyone.

Thanks for a lovely day morning and ticking off one on my bucket list.

Booked an 2 hour ride for 6 beginner adults. As we have 2 young children with us, I check with them if there is also pony rides while waiting, and they confirmed via email that there is. They also confirmed that there is a English speaking guide.

When we reach there, there is only 1 person at the counter, and a ladies in her 50s , the guide, who can't speak a word of English. While we understand that French is their mother tongue, but they should have promised us an English speaking guide if they don't have any.

While the adults went on their rides, no one is left in the ranch. Saw a lady staff walking her dog, asked her about the pony ride, she just say 'No' , another false promise.

While the rest of the adults went on the the ride, the lady guide was smoking in front while riding her horse. Very little care was taken to ensure safety of the riders as well.

One of the worse experience ever. I will strongly advised against visiting.

I have a copy of the email with the empty promises if they ever dare to dispute.

Beautiful nature and nice ride but mostly - walk. Only 2 short sprints were allowed during 2 h ride. We saw lots of flamingos and the lady - guide - was very nice. Spoke some English too. The stable is adjacent to a very nice hotel that offered us great breakfast and lunch ( extra cost ). The ride was really interesting but for me and my colleague way to slow. We wanted to trot and canter more which was not allowed. Same day we also went to another stable and after both rides Les Arnelles turned out to be better experience. Nature, the views were really sth special. For us everything was great except the speed of the ride witch did not meet our expectations. I am sure that for people who ride only a little bit this trip would have been amazing. We hv visited the place at the end of July.
