Petit Futé's opinion on HARAS NATIONAL - MAISON DU CHEVAL

Plate millesim 2022

The horse has always occupied an essential place in this garrison town. In 1806, Napoleon re-established the National Stud in Tarbes and had new stables built. Inaugurated in 1810, they were initially intended to provide mounts for the army. In 1835, the stud provided 35% of the mounts for the light cavalry. It is here that the Anglo-Arabian breed was born, from the Tarbais horse. The stud farm was enlarged in 1832 and again in 1901. After the First World War, it reduced its activity: tanks replaced the horses. Located in the heart of the city, the buildings of the National Stud are classified as historical monuments. They were bought by the City Council, which undertook major restoration work. The exceptional 9-hectare site, guarded by two hundred-year-old trees, is open to the public. We note the presence of the Municipal Equestrian Brigade, a Military Equestrian Section and two equestrian artists in residence. One can visit the Empire style stables, the saddlery of honor or the farriery. This place is home to one of the last Ratouin riding schools and its large 42-meter hall. If the successive architects have all made their modifications, Bigorre blue on the woodwork and Payolle marble remain intact. For a long time, the carriages and historical collections have represented magnificent testimonies. Guided tours and themed tours allow you to discover this exceptional site.

Since 1995, the Equestria Festival takes place on the site in July. Information : www.festivalequestria.com

TRES BEAU HARAS NATIONAL !
Ce haras qui a fait naître le cheval anglo-arabe propose une découverte du cheval en général. Surtout, il ne faut pas oublier que TARBES est LA ville du cheval. D'ailleurs, vous pouvez admirer tout près du haras, la statue du Maréchal FOCH à cheval.
De plus en été, le haras propose une très grande et merveilleuse animation : EQUESTRIA. Manifestation où évoluent d'émérites cavalières et cavaliers qui montrent tout leur talent avec le cheval.
JE RECOMMANDE FORTEMENT.

Un lieu de toute beauté avec de grands bâtiments en pierre qui abrite de magnifiques chevaux de race. Vous pouvez faire des visites guidées, il y a plein de choses à apprendre. Un endroit incontournable de Tarbes, haut lieu de la culture équestre.
Fin juillet, du 24 au 29, vous pourrez admirer le festival Equestria qui a maintenant 30 ans. Festival qui tourne autour de l'art équestre. Il y a diverses animations pendant la journée, puis le soir, place aux artistes de grande renomée pour la nuit des Créations. Un moment magique et unique à vivre...même pour ceux qui n'y connaissent rien aux chevaux. Il s'agit d'Art, avant tout !
