Les-folles-journées-du-chevalSince 2010, La Chapelle Gaceline has organized the “Folles Journées” with a view to promoting the horse in every way possible: for its beauty, its companionship, as a help in the work of man, as an animal of leisure …

Every two years, local councilors, voluntary residents and local professionals work together on a new programme of events, always surprising the visitor, whatever age, even if he or she has been before!!

On Saturday and Sunday, the whole village is transformed into the village of the Horse. There are major events, including the Horse Fair, a trek on horseback, a dinner and cabaret show, an open stage event and, of course, the horse-drawn carriage race! Visitors have been delighted by the themes of the Far West, of Fantasia and the Peoples on Horseback, with exciting stage sets, actors and loads of surprises. A wonderful opportunity to spend a happy few days in the company of horses.

This event will alternate every two years with the “Open house in the village of horses”.
Next meeting on 2017.
