For those who are passionate about horse riding or simply curious, you will be delighted to know that it is possible to visit Mauritius on horseback. Enjoy a magical moment on a horseback ride during which you will feel in perfect harmony with nature.
The equestrian centers in the north of Mauritius offer you the possibility to ride on horseback on the beach or through the luxuriant nature, whether you are a beginner or experienced rider. Professional instructors offer private and group lessons for adults and children, workshops, as well as trips on the coral, on the beach or in the middle of nature, and even swimming with horses for experienced riders.
Several places allow you to practice horseback riding in Mauritius. The Club d’Equitation du Nord, a place dedicated to horses and tennis, is very serene. Located in the middle of the ruins of an old sugar factory on the grounds of Domaine de Mon Loisir, this family club, welcoming Mauritians, expatriates, and travelers, has developed into a riding school of excellent reputation. With thirty-five spacious boxes, three paddocks with covered shelters, two renovated white sand quarries, a clubhouse, two tennis courts and a playground for toddlers, it offers everyone the opportunity to find their activity.
Suitable for beginners and experienced riders alike, this 1.5-hour equestrian ride, led by professional instructors, offers the discovery of a 650-hectare private property that would be like a summary of part of local history: an old traditional house, the remains of a factory chimney, a lime kiln and, in the park, semi-free deer, giant turtles and farm animals. The departure will be in the early morning around 8 am or in the afternoon around 3 pm to avoid the heat. Refreshments and snacks will be included in the tour.
