Languedoc hosts France's most famous horse-riding trail
If you're looking for good horse riding in Languedoc Roussillon, South France, then you're in luck. The 'Sentier Cathar' or Cathar Trail is France's and Languedoc's most famous horse-riding trail - passing 2 cathar castle ruins as it weaves its way from the Mediterranean, through the foothills of Languedoc's Pyrénées to Foix.
It's not the only trail, of course, and the other horse riding trails on offer in Languedoc are just as spectacular. the 'Circuit des Traboucayres' takes you through the dramatic mountains of Languedoc's Pyrénées - half of it in Spain.
The Camargue region (just to the east of Montpellier (not shown on our map) is also a great place for horse riding. See the links at the botom of this page for more information.
