What is the Camargue riding ?
It is before any a working riding that have a practice the herdsmen of wild cattle of this region. We find it nowhere else.
It is officially recognized by the French Federation of Riding today.
It is a way of rising more free, where you will learn to lead your horse of a single hand, safer, thanks to the comfortable hollow saddle of the herdsman, and which aims at giving a maximum of autonomy to the horse.
Riding of the big spaces, it will make you discover new pleasures and new sensations.
The hollow saddles which you will use guarantee comfort and safety(security).
Originally, they are "working saddles: the herdsmen guarded the herds of bulls of horses and bulls on horseback all day long, they thus needed safe and comfortable saddles.
Today, these characteristics make the happiness of the beginners, that they are young or grown-up. The saddles of Domain of Quatret result from the best craftsmen of the region. Those who know how to ally modernity and tradition in their manufacturing.

All the horses which you will go(take) up arise from the breeding of the Domain of Quatret.
Horses are born and live in the swamp. This free life and in herd of bulls makes them very well-balanced.
Before the breaking-in and the training(formation) (which(who) begins in three years), the foals make some small stays near the Domain to be socialized, used to the man and trained(formed) smoothly.
For a long time, the search(research) for a good character was one of essential criteria of the selection of the horse farm(breeding) the Camargue of the Domain of Quatret.
The knowledge of the origins and the families as well in the past which today allow to confide(entrust) to each the most respectful and best adapted horse of the rider.
Patience, observation, respect are the success factors of this breeding and the training.
