Horses

The local stables are situated in the forest on the outskirts of Labenne de l’Ocean and there are other riding facilities at Ondres (5km).horses_beach

For competent riders there are hacks through the pine forest, along the shoreline and around the dunes, as well as lessons in the enclosed paddock area for novices.

For the most part, stables will not allow clients a ‘free rein’ until they have proved themselves over many weeks and in peak season, it may be too hot for both horses and riders to enjoy vigorous exercise.
