Gosh I love horseys. I’m an Equino-philiac Francophile
The World Equestrian Games – les Jeux Equestres Mondiaux – will take place from August 24th to September 7th, 2014 in the Equine capital of France, Normandy mainly around the city of Caen (pronounced “Cong”). It will be a phenomenon of epic proportions. So if you were looking for an excuse to go to France then try this for a good one!
The disciplines – or events that will be happening are: dressage, para-dressage, showjumping, eventing, harness racing, vaulting, quarter horse wrangling, endurance riding
Tickets go on sale in November this year.
What an experience!
And of course Normandy is one of the best places to be in France in August.
Europe is on holidays and all the French etc clog up the whole of the South of France but – not Normandy.
See the wonderful Mont St Michel, the Normandy D-Day Beaches, beautiful Jumieges, Lyon-le-Foret, Caen, Rouen and maybe segue into Brittany too after you have seen the Games?
