Avec 8 hippodromes, il y a toujours une réunion hippique en Calvados.

Thanks to its 8 racecourses, there's always an equestrian event going on in Calvados.

From Deauville to Vire, via Caen, make sure you pop in to one of them.

Whether you choose to admire trotters, harnessed trotters or gallopers, the racecourse atmosphere is always as convivial as it is exciting.

Consult all dates for horse races in each of the 8 race courses in Calvados or the calendar of equestrian events throughout Lower Normandy (in french).
