Located in the town of Sainte-Foy, 5 minutes from Les Sables-d’Olonne and 15 minutes from the seaside, Pôle Equestre Vendéen is a major site for equestrianism in western France. Set in a natural environment, it is ideal for training in peace and tranquillity, whilst remaining within each reach of the main roads. This modern, functional site was inaugurated in 2013. It includes an expansive riding arena spanning more than 8,000 m2, a 3,000+ m2 indoor manege and an adjustable cross-country course covering nearly 6 hectares of land. The site can accommodate the full range of equestrian sports (steeplechases, three-day events, dressage, combined driving, hunter trials, horseball, etc.) and competitions ranging from departmental to national.
