I put together an album of some of my pictures from traveling in France. It was hard to choose only a handful of photos from all of those I took. They are mostly of the two farms Harriet and I visited to test ride/drive Merens Ponies.
I would like to give special thanks to Christine and Jean-Louis Savignol who own and operate Haras Picard du Sant. They are very active with the horse community. You can tell their passion for good horses and good living runs deep by how well the horses and guests are cared for. I can't say enough about all they do. You have to learn more through their website: Haras Picard du Sant
Secondly, I would like to thank our hosts at Elevage et dressage de chevaux de Merens. Xavier Paquin and his wife (sorry, but I forgot her name). They also knew every detail that went into the breeding and training of their ponies. Besides breeding Merens, they also raise ducks for liver pâté. We had duck prepared three different ways just for lunch. View more about their farm at www.sie-merens.com.
