- thrill at the excitement of our many racecourses
- visit a stud farm
- revel in an equestrian show
- in October, don't miss the Equi’days festival and discover the many facets of the equestrian world

In Normandy, horse breeding is a way of life.

Calvados is home to France's greatest concentration of stud farms per hectare, approximately 1 every 4km2.

Quality facilities such as the Pôle International du Cheval in Deauville, the CIRALE (Centre for imaging and research into equine locomotor disorders) in Goustranville and a vast range of racecourses collectively offer Calvados a fine reputation in the equestrian world.

The Hippolia cluster in Caen reunites internationally renowned establishments in an aim to encourage French equine innovation and scientific research.

Calvados boasts the entire range of equestrian skills: breeders, trainers, blacksmiths, riding instructors...
