Good morning to all
The equestrian tourism centre a hue and a dia/ Sommant Horse Team is therefore closed like all other establishments in France.
We have put all the horses in the meadow, as well as the stallions, the sport horses and the trekking horses and the two or three horses in convalescence for various reasons... We are putting the last foals from 7 to 12 months old in the meadow with care...Of course, the grass is not yet there, but it should not be long now, because it was impossible for us to assume financially when we have no more income the expenses related to the maintenance of the horses inside. (hay/straw/pellets, fittings, electricity and water)
We are nevertheless expecting 8 little foals which should be born in the next 15 days...
We take this opportunity to clean the stables, the gites, the surroundings and to make firewood which will be for sale at the end of the year.
Of course, all our hiking activities are cancelled, we have for the moment cancelled the following hikes: Italy from sea to sea (17 registered) the Glavachers hike (7 registered) the hike in Catalonia (13 registered) the TREC French Cup and European Cup of April 4/5 (100 participants) and the previous TREC course. If the situation does not clearly improve, we will be obliged to suppress also our hikes in May (Alsace and vineyards) and in June (Morvan and Lozère.) But keep your fingers crossed, if everyone is as careful as we are to avoid contamination by basic gestures we should collectively be able to welcome you this summer.
Each one of you who is registered on one of these hikes will receive at least one month beforehand an email from us to let you know our situation.
Of course, many of you have sent us a deposit for the above mentioned hikes. We have two solutions available to you: the first is to ask you to leave us all or part of this amount as a deposit for a future hike. The second one is to send us back a RIB with the amount you paid and the date of your transfer and we will refund you by return.
The situation will oblige us as soon as the circulation of the horses will be made possible again to market some horses (to allow us to survive the sanitary crisis) we count on you if you want to.
Good luck to all of you, know that we consider ourselves for the moment as privileged compared to many of you who are more or less stuck in small apartments in town. We live outside, in the countryside, far from the current urban turpitudes, surrounded by our horses and dogs and by two or three riders who have chosen Sommant as their confinement area.
We think of you all.
Amélie and Jean
Hiking, horses and friendliness are much more than a profession, they are our passion
All year round, we offer you a complete range of hikes, more or less sporty depending on the destination. Accompanied or in freedom, they belong to you and will remain forever engraved in your equestrian memories...

Sommant Horse Team and the horses bred by A hue and Dia, it is also many weekends in the Fontainebleau Forest, Baie de Somme and Morvan.
