Instruction & Certificates

In Russin, at Centre Hippique de la Chaumaz, we will encourage you to fall in love with horse riding!


We organise horse-riding instruction for children from 4 years old as well as for adolescents. Instruction for adolescents concentrates on their preferred discipline.

Centre Hippique de la Chaumaz organises horse-riding instruction during the school holidays, except during the Christmas and February breaks.The children are taken care of from 9am to 4pm. They look after the ponies (brushing, care) and take part, according to their level, in lunge lessons, pony treks and also harnessing.

For older children and also for adolescents, we put in place instruction that has a more specific theme, such as dressage and/or jumping.


Each year, Centre Hippique de la Chaumaz organises a course for the horse-riding certificate. This is open to our own pupils, but also to people from outside the centre.

A placement test is mandatory.

Theory lessons and practicals organised over several weeks.
