The Pony Club des Retrouvailles welcomes you.
My name is Elizabeth Naffrechoux and I have been passionate about horse riding since I was a little girl. My English origins give me a different vision of horse riding. I arrived in France with my parents in 2004 and all my studies were naturally oriented towards the equine world with the obtaining of diplomas: C.A.P soigneur d’equidé; Bac pro; C.Q.P.A.S.A; B.P.J.E.S; BFEEH: brevet Fédéral d’encadrement d’équi-handi.
The Retrouvailles Pony Club was founded in September 2019 in the commune of Voulême in the south of Vienne, halfway between Poitiers and Angoulême (along the N10). The retrouvailles pony club welcomes you to a natural setting crossed by the Charente river, which allows you to go swimming in the summer with the ponies, but the commune also has many paths either in the shade of its forests or to enjoy the scenery in its magnificent plain.
With my facilities, you can discover horse-riding through a variety of activities, from riding lessons (from 18 months) to country hacks (from 18 months) with the ponies in hand. For those who want to create a bond and start learning how to look after a horse without the constraints of being an owner, I offer half-livery for the ponies/horses in my cavalry. Of course, if you are lucky enough to have your four-hoofed companion, I can offer you board in the meadow.
But I also know how good horses can be for people, so I offer equi-handi lessons for people with disabilities, adapted to each individual, and I also travel with my ponies to specialised facilities (IME; EHPAD; foyer logement; etc.) to bring happiness to the residents.
Of course, I’m also thinking about food lovers! From June to August, I offer “rando-gourmandes” which combine the pleasures of horse riding with the discovery of local produce, and in the summer I offer pancake rides.
Enjoy your discovery and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me to indulge your passion for horse riding.
