      A desire to share around horses and nature.

      The creation of this "Espace Equestre Henson", at the gates of the village of Barbizon, in Saint-Martin-en-Bière, by the Olympic rider Roger-Yves Bost and his wife Cyrille, is the story of a whole life based on a common passion: the horse.

      Settled for many years on the edge of the Fontainebleau forest with his family, Bosty has been able to build up a relationship of trust and complicity with his horses over time, training them for performance in view of major international competitions, while using this precious tool that is the forest: this stress-free environment, where the connection with the animal is multiplied, both horse and rider benefiting from a moment of osmosis.

      The dream of being able to share these unique moments with as many people as possible and this relationship with the plant and animal world became a reality thanks to a magnificent encounter: the meeting with the "Hensons", these rustic, versatile horses adapted to outdoor riding for all; the meeting with one of the founders of their breed, Dominique Cocquet and his team; but also the sharing of the same philosophy: the horse.

      An escape to places full of emotions
      Henson horses will take you on a journey of discovery of the exceptional natural, cultural and historical heritage of the Fontainebleau forest. A land of inspiration for 19th century painters, a hunting ground for the sovereigns who stayed at the sumptuous Château de Fontainebleau, this 22,000 hectare "Forêt d'Exception®" invites you to travel through the diversity of its landscapes.

      We offer you the chance to experience unique moments every day by reservation: discovery rides (3h) and passion rides (3h) for exceptional equestrian experiences.
