The Vosges du Sud and the Plateau des 1000 Étangs offers a particular welcome for horses and nature enthusiasts.
Horse riding hikes
The equestrian centres let you discover the 1000 Étangs over a day or few days hike. Some accomodations also welcome horse riders and their mounts.
All of our hiking trails are accessible with horses (we advise a reconnaissance of the trail first). Furthermore, the 1000 Étangs area is traversed by the equestrian trails of the Ballons Comtois (orange paint or orange horseshoe on a sign).
You can fin the map of equestrian trails in the Tourist Office.
The Rassemblement Equestre des Vosges Saônoises (REVS, horse riding club) can also assist you in the preparation of your hike.
