The Henson horses at Chantilly or the advent of a dream…
The dream of creation of an “Espace Equestre Henson” (Henson outdoor riding centre) in Chantilly dates back to 2004, at the time of the Polo World Championship, held in the nearby village of Apremont, but it took 10 more years and the encouragements of the Institut de France, the Chantilly Foundation and the city of Chantilly to make this dream come true.
Today, “Henson-Chantilly” enriches itself of a new jewel ! Thanks to its partnership with the Polo Club Domaine de Chantilly – La Ferme d’Apremont, it allows to its guest riders to access to the magical world of the largest polo centre in Europe, just one step away from Paris and from the Roissy – De Gaulle International Airport.
And he thus became: “Henson-Chantilly-Apremont”!
“Henson – Chantilly – Apremont” combines two privileges : first, to take you through the streets and alleys of the city of Chantilly along its monuments, up to the prestigious park of the Castle of Chantilly for an exclusive ride inside the park itself and, second, to make you discover the very heart of a Polo Centre and the most fascinating of all equestrian sports in its unique wooded environment.
You could even combine the two in a “Prince’s day in Chantilly” or discover one after the other, each of these magical experiences !
Our Henson horses are waiting for you, either at the “Atelier de Manse”, in the heart of the city of Chantilly, for the Park and Castle ride or at the “Polo club” in the neighboring village of Apremont (just 2 miles away from Chantilly), to discover the universe of Polo.
