Bienvenue, salüt bijsamme, welcome to Alsace - one of the most beautiful regions in France.


I hope you enjoy my Web site - I would love welcome you to Alsace to spend some time with me and my horses and so that we can share my passion for horseback trail riding. "Alice en selle" means "Alice in the saddle", and that's a place where I just love to be. I am sure that you will really enjoy spending some time in the saddle with me.


I'm passionate about trail riding - and I've been lucky enough to enjoy it in several countries. My longest trail ride to date was from the Middle Rhine Valley in Germany to Alsace in France - an unforgettable experience!

So what are you looking for? A day's ride through the wonderful Alsatian countryside with a delicious lunch in a French restaurant? A short riding holiday in Alsace with  a three-day trail in the North Vosges with its magificent scenery, sprinkled with castles, chapel ruins and red sandstone cliffs? A multi-day center-based riding holiday in a picturesque "Ferme Auberge" with varied daily rides and one fixed hotel for the week? Or even a customised riding holiday in Alsace? There's something for everyone.


I have horses to fit all riders: from a larger pony for children or small adults through to a heavy horse for larger riders (we also use him for logging work in the forest!). They are all experienced trail horses and will all hack out in a group or alone.


I'm looking forward to seeing you in the saddle!
