Versailles Royal Stables

At the end of the 17th century, Jules Hardouin-Mansart built the Royal Stables at Versailles. It was home to the king's horses, as well as the horsemen, grooms, and pages. Two hundred years on, the Grande Ecurie houses the Equestrian Arts Academy, directed by Bartabas.

Over the course of your visit, discover the stables with its 40 horses, including the famous Lusitanians, a favorite of Louis XIV. Wander through the schools and admire the magnificent, wooden, Italian-style arena, where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the riders in training. You'll also learn about the history of the Haute Ecole, whose primary ambition is to provide top-level training combining equestrian dressage with other artistic disciplines.

To complete your visit, discover the Chateau de Versailles.

The tour ends inside the Cour d'honneur.

Admission to Versailles is not included.
