What You'll Do
  • Visit splendid Royal Stables at Versailles Château and discover its history and architecture
  • Discover the real life of the Equestrian Arts Academy
  • See the most beautiful horses selected for shows
Overview
The Royal Stables and the Château de Versailles were built all at once. Today, one of the masters of horses’ dressage has built a school to relay his art to students.
What to Expect
At the end of the 17th century, Jules Hardouin-Mansart built the Royal Stables at Versailles. It was home to the king’s horses, as well as the horsemen, grooms, pages, and so on. Two hundred years after, the Grande Ecurie houses the Equestrian Arts Academy, directed by Bartabas.

Over the course of your visit, discover the stables with its 40 horses, including the famous Lusitanians, a favourite of Louis XIV. Wander through the schools and admire the magnificent, wooden, Italian-style arena, where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the riders in training. You will also learn about the history of the ‘Haute Ecole’, whose primary ambition is to provide top-level training combining equestrian dressage with other artistic disciplines.
