The museum of the Living Horse in Chantilly

Tous les jours à 11h et 14 h30 et parfois à 16h30, 2 cavalières vous expliquent l'histoire de cet édifice, et leurs métier de cavalières de spectacle. Vous découvrirez comment fonctionne un cheval sous la selle du cavalier, les bases de l'équitation en passant par le travail de basse école qui vous propulsera sur le travail de haute école, et bien sur, un échantillon de figures de spectacles.

Horseracing in Chantilly

Chantilly Racecourse
Situated just 20 minutes from La Source Tranquille stands one of the most famous horse racing venues in France. The architect responsible for the renovations of the Chateau de Chantilly, Honore Daumet, was responsible too for the grandstand in Chantilly Racecourse, built in 1879. Although Chantilly racing predates this by some 40 years, the grandstand heralded the great age of horse racing in the region and was built against what is described as the most beautiful stables in the world.

The Great Stables were built in 1719 as stabling for the chateau estate and measure 186 metres long. Part of the stable buildings now house the Living Museum of the Horse, comprising 31 rooms filled with art depicting all things equine.

Chantilly racing is Flat racing, contested by the finest thoroughbred horses in the world. The course is right-handed with interlocking tracks, giving three courses in total covering distances from 1400 metres to 2400 metres. The course is home to two of the four French Classics; the Prix du Jockey Club and Prix de Diane.

The Prix du Jockey Club was inspired by the Epsom Derby and is often termed the French Derby in recognition of its origins. The race is run over 2,100 metres, which is around a mile and 2 furlongs and is staged in June each year to great acclaim. Several winners have gone on to win at other notable races such as the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe and the Irish Derby.

It is rare to have such an incredibly beautiful setting for horseracing matched in quality by the standard of the races themselves and the key to that quality is down to the district of Chantilly too, which is France’s largest horse training area.
