The largest Princely stables of Europe

An architectural masterpiece of the 18th century, the Great Stables were built by the architect Jean Aubert for Louis-Henri de Bourbon, 7th prince of Condé. This veritable palace for horses, built from 1719 to 1735, recently celebrated its three hundredth birthday! The Great Stables are home to the Museum of the Horse, which presents the relationship between humans and horses since the beginning of civilisation. A veritable show stables, where passion for horses mingles with equestrian arts, this building is home to an Equestrian troop that stages original creations all year round, much to the delight of young and old alike.

The Museum of the Horse

The Museum of the Horse was inaugurated in June 2013 in the 15 rooms of the Cour des Remises in the Great Stables. As a museum of both art and ethnology, its aim is to allow visitors to discover the importance of the relationship between humans and horses since the beginning of civilisation.
