The Henson horses at Chantilly or the advent of a dream…

The dream of an “Henson-Chantilly Equestrian Center” dates from 2004, at the time of the conduct of the Polo World Championships in Apremont, but it will take 10 years, combined with the growth and maturity of the other “Henson Equestrian Centers”, to the benevolent welcome of the Institut de France, the City of Chantilly and the Domain of Chantilly Foundation, to make this dream come true.

Today, Henson – Chantilly has been enriched by a new jewel! By forming a partnership with the Domain of Chantilly Polo Club – La Ferme d’Apremont, it also allows its riders to access the magical world of the most beautiful set of polo fields in Europe, close to Paris and Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport.

And he thus became: “Henson-Chantilly-Apremont”!

“Henson-Chantilly-Apremont” combines two privileges: that of taking you through the city and its monuments, even into the prestigious Castle of Chantilly’s park for an exclusive equestrian walk or to make you discover, in the very heart of the grounds of honor and polo training, the most fascinating of all equestrian sports in its unique forest setting. And of course, you can combine the two in “a princely day” or come to discover one after the other, each of these magical experiences!

The Henson horses are waiting for you either at “The Manse Workshop”, in the heart of the city, or at “The farm of Apremont” for one or other of our exceptional equestrian experiences. But for you, it’s simple: just specify your wish at the time of booking at a single point of contact or contact.
