Horse and Saumur

The biggest equestrian statue in the world !
Since 1999, a huge horse called "ARCHEVAL", built in welded tubes of steel and 12 meters high, ( Christian RENONCIAT's work ), is on the motorway, just near Saumur. It is a way of reminding to everybody that Saumur is the capital of the horse.
Concours d'attelage

All the year round events and shows in relationship with horses take place in Saumur. For example, the "CADRE NOIR Gala" or the "Carrousel" or more simply trick riding competition or races at Verrie racecourse.
The "CADRE NOIR" shows are always highly valued because the "Cadre noir" horsemen are among the best in the world. Anyway, they are often abroad for shows, for example Japan, or HONG KONG.

n the town, you can often see horses and in summer, tourists can visit SAUMUR in barouche.
