Only a few kilometers from the world-famous Puy du Fou” park, the Ville des Herbiers is a land of excellence. Of economic, associative, cultural excellence ... But also of sporting excellence. And today, a whole city, with its forty clubs, its thousands of athletes, athletes and volunteers, is happy to welcome Olympic teams as a preparation center for the Games. A whole city awaits athletes in new or renovated infrastructures, all in an easy to access, pleasant setting, conducive to concentration, training, but also relaxation and tourism. "Country town", close to nature, with significant hotel capacity, the Ville des Herbiers has everything to ensure that each athlete can prepare for his Games in the best possible conditions. The « Parc Equestre du Bocage » is made up of a large arena with two sand tracks Toubin Clément. One 72 x 37 m competition and one 65 x 20 warm-up.  We have a 130 x 60 m outdoor sand track and a 120 x 60 m grass track. The site is equipped with a Havrincourt ring for working free-range horses or lungeing them. We have 44 hard boxes and 6 removable boxes all the year. We can accommodate up to 100 additional boxes with a concrete reception area. The whole site has sound, the arena is sound-insulated. We have 2 clubhouse rooms, an isolated indoor jury that can serve as an office and another outside jury. The whole park has been designed to accommodate people with reduced mobility.

Special features

We have obstacle courses, a dressage arena with extension to make a carriage dressage square, a few fixed obstacles, the equipment for a carriage Marathon.

We are close to any catering system, from gourmet restaurants (Michelin starred) to international chains. It is possible to work with a service provider directly on site.

The Puy du Fou Park is only about ten km away.
