Get on your horse......real horse riding adventure

If you like big Nature and big adventure for your holiday experience - you could not fail to be entranced by this great short video - (edited by from a French TV programme "Des Racines et des Ailes" which concentrates its programming on innovative people who are making their living in positive ways in the countryside. Astonishing to see the natural beauty of the landscape just behind the French Riviera and a one-off guy who enables you to enjoy all this from the back of a horse. Denis Longfellow is a characterful Californian who has lived in France for thirty odd years and loves his troupeau, his winters in Sainte Agnes and of course his summers in Le Boreon, near Saint Martin Vesubie, in the Mercantour. If you are fit and confident there is no reason why you can't join Denis on his exploits in the Alpes-Maritimes. This is not a a dull plod on the back of a de-motivated riding school pony - but a horse riding holiday that you will never forget.


  1. The cat picture is a deliberate ruse - can't access the other computer at the moment - cat riding is not an option ...but petting (the moggy!) certainly is!!

  2. Cat riding and not milking - taking me back to a funny 5 minutes in "Meet the Fockers"!!
