Guided tour of the Haras d'Ecajeul and tasting
About your activity
Jean-Luc and Isabelle Bara, owners of the Haras d'Ecajeul, organize guided tours to the heart of their facilities. Jean-Luc guides visitors through the stables, the meadow and the loin round before joining Isabelle and her 100% homemade pastries.
Every starts in the courtyard, with a presentation of the Land of Auge and the quality of its terroir for breeding. Jean-Luc accesses the boxes to take out the horses and explain the morphology of the equines: proportion of muscles, strong forearms and short cannon. During the visit, Jean-Luc details the horse's entire life cycle (ledge, spring birth, training, races), as well as race levels, distances on racetracks, the world circuit, endowments, jockeys' equipment and registration books.
But what appeals most is the original and reputed method used by Jean-Luc for the buds: the method of whisperers, revealed in the film "The man who whispered in the ear of horses", consisting of better understanding the horse's behavior and forging a natural relationship with him, without constraint or violence. This is a no-brainer for Jean-Luc, who, since the popularization of whisperers in the 2000s, has applied this gentle riding method.
The tour ends with a snack with a local drink and pastries concocted by Isabelle. Enjoy next to a fireplace in winter, or in the garden overlooking horses in summer
