Description

The great riding academy in a stunning setting.

The Academy of Equestrian Arts founded by Bartabas in 2003 is now installed in the Grande Ecurie du Roi or the King's Great Stables at Versailles, a magnificent complex built between 1678 and 1682 by Jules Hardouin-Mansart.

Framing a horseshoe-shaped courtyard, the buildings with their carved facades are an elegant ode to the horse. They once housed the king's riding horses and the complex incorporated the manege where the pages and young nobles of the province would receive the necessary training to be officers in the royal army. As well as learning to use weapons, they were taught what would make them perfect gentlemen: riding, fencing, dance, music, drawing and so on. These arts are pursued today by the écuyers who today perform in the horse show.

The public is now invited to enter the buildings constructed by the architect Patrick Bouchain to watch the daily training sessions and performances in the ring, and admire the magnificent galleries where horses reign supreme.
