Welcome to our Horse Riding section.


We have 6 horses on the farm and we offer guided horse rides in the beautiful nature of Mauritius.

Find some important information below:



  • 1h guided excursion on horseback - Rs. 2,000 per person.

  • Beginners excursion (horses are hand held by the guide – 20 mins) - Rs. 650 per person - only for residents of La Vieille Cheminée.


You should be at the stables at least 30 mins before the ride. You will be offered a fresh juice or a cup of coffee then meet your guide and the horses. We will give you a few explanations and help you get geared up for your ride.

Even though our horses are always very friendly and calm, they are powerful animals and can be unpredictable, especially when in nature. Please note the following concerning the guided horse rides at La Vieille Cheminée:


  • We require that all riders have a some experience in horse riding and we will not allow total beginners to join the guided ride.
