Do you know how to approach a horse? If you're stressed or aggressive, the horse will sense it immediately. Being in the company of a horse means using all five senses to establish a non-verbal dialogue. Promise yourself that next time youre around one of these magnificent beasts, youll be more Zen! Give yourself over to an equestrian adventure. This uniquely cooperative form of transportation is available year-round throughout the Outaouais region. Riding through the woods among the colourful autumn leaves or dashing through the snow in a horse-drawn sleigh, youll discover our region's most beautiful city and country landscapes. You can explore the groomed trails for a few hours or a full day, and for novice riders we have riding lessons and equestrian day camps. Hop into the saddle and off you go at a walk, trot or gallop!

Our featured route
The Outaouais is made of beautiful sceneries. Contemplating them from the the road can be breathtaking but there's nothing quite like riding in a serene setting on the back of a horse. Take a day to reconnect with nature; first by feasting your eyes on a magnificent site and then by bonding with a horse in the picturesque Petite-Nation La Lièvre.
Before going to Ferme Cabriole for a day of horseback riding, stop at the Plaisance Falls. The site was once the core of the village of North Nation Mills, of which not much is left today. Breathe in the fresh air. Isn't it a lovely day to be outside? Ferme Cabriole also has quite the menagerie, too! There are the horses, but also rabbits, sheep, cats, dogs, and birds that will provide your daily dose of fluffy cuteness. Have dinner at La Toquade in Saint-André-Avellin and, in July, end your day at a professional rodeo during the Festival western de St-André-Avellin; it's the kind of day that's good for the soul!
