Ride Along Frances Brittany Sea Coast With Cross Country International
Millbrook, NYJanuary 29, 2004For anyone who has ever
dreamed of galloping a beautiful horse along the beaches of Frances
Coastline, your dream has come true.
Country International has announced that they are now accepting
reservations for exciting new vacations featuring trail rides along
the Brittany Coastline in France. These new horseback riding vacations
start on April 5, 2004.
Brittany Sea Coast Trail Rides offer vacationers the chance to ride
over some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. Riding along the
coastline fringed with a succession of rocks, beaches, creeks, headlands
and cliffs battered by the oceans swell exposes riders to
some of natures most beautiful sights. Riders can immerse
themselves in the rich French culture as they view architecture
that is full of local Brittany heritage.
on the Northwest coast of France, Brittany is culturally and geographically
very different from the rest of the country. Rugged, untamed and
virtually self-reliant, Brittany is known for its distinct Brenton
culture, lace, cider, seaside resorts and crepes. The secluded beaches,
towering lighthouses lining the coast and the charismatic villages
make Brittany one of the most popular vacation destinations in France.
Brittany Sea Coast Trial Ride is the only ride Cross County International
offers that is ridden entirely on the coastline of France. Other
French rides offered only touch the coastline, then work inland,
exploring the different climates and cultures. Cross Country International
prides itself on the unique seaside itinerary of the Brittany Sea
Coast Trail Ride that sets it apart from any other ride. Riders
will learn much about the land, its people and its history as they
ride near the beaches of the D-Day invasion and Le Mont-St-Michel.

at paces ranging from a gentle walk to a sprinting gallop. Two guidesone

the chance to experience the many different accommodations that
France has to offer including chateaux, villas and much more. The

the riders will stay overnight. The large castle, full of character
and charm is rich with history and is the perfect environment to

new destination where they will be met with their luggage. Support
vans follow the ride all day, equipped with a kitchen, shower, the
riders luggage and first aid in case of an emergency.

mussel farm, to the local favorite Brenton gateaux (butter cake)

the days ride is over, guests can enjoy the non-riding activities
including sightseeing, swimming, touring a mussel farm, health spa
sessions, seafood sampling, and an optional visit to Mont Saint
Michael. At the end of this incredible journey, riders reluctantly
head home and although they are leaving beautiful France and their
new four-legged friends behind, they are taking with them amazing
friendships, unforgettable memories and the experience of a lifetime.
