Experience Royal Stables with Deluxe France: Every Saturday and Sunday, the Great Stable of Versailles is transformed into an innovative performance center. The performers are not only masterful horseback riders, but also dancers, singers and fencers.
For this experience, you will be seated near the front of the venue for the best view. The proximity allows viewers to see the brilliant eyes of the white horses as well as the intricate choreography by Bartabas.The Royal Stables of Versailles, constructed under the reign of King Louis XIV, have a rich history. During the Ancien Régime, horses were essential to the kingdom’s operations, military and otherwise, and horsemanship underlined the strength of France’s royalty. In the 18th century, more than 2,000 horses were kept in the Royal Stables. Today, the stables hold the National School of Architecture of Versailles, the Equestrian Academy of Versailles, and a branch of the Center for research and restoration of France.
Afterward, visitors will enjoy a glass of champagne and an intimate meeting with one of the riders at Academie Equestre.
Before the performance, visitors enjoy a private tour of the stables and grounds, where they will get a closer look at the famous performance horses with an expert guide to show how the evening’s spectacle links to France’s royal past.
