Jura for horse riders

Welcome to the land of horses! More than 500 kilometres of signposted and maintained trails await horseback riders and their faithful companions. From the wooded pastures of the Franches-Montagnes, the idyllic banks of the Doubs river and the outskirts of the medieval town of St-Ursanne to the magnificent views on the Chasseral.

Whether you want to set off and explore the many kilometres of horse-riding trails with your own horse or participate in a leisure activity giving you the chance to experience this fabulous creature, a wide range of options awaits you, including horseback riding courses, free or accompanied rides, guided trekkings, holidays with your own horse and horse-riding camps. 

Along these routes, accommodation options with stabling facilities and suitable restaurant services are available. 

Vouchers providing access to the networks as well as detailed maps can be obtained from the tourist offices and providers of stabling facilities. They are also available online.

In winter, there is a network of prepared and signposted winter trails.
