What are the facilities like?
The Haras de la Boulaye features twenty-five stables, grouped around a sand school (15 x 35 meter, on a 2-4 % slope). In addition there are an all-weather school (70 x 20 meter), a small school (15 x 15 meter on a 4 % slope), another outdoor arena (40 x 20 meter), a full fledge grass track (1800 meter) and ten kilometers of private trails.
SomE and the Haras de la Boulaye are located near the Foret de Cerisy, a public forest with some twenty-four kilometers of public trails. Horses are kept in large groups on 40 ha grass. The school features a study and lecture hall, as well as facilities for group and private movement lessons.
Can I bring my own horse?
Yes. Your horse will be integrated into one of our groups. You may ride it as your personal horse in the SomE program.
Where do students live?
Two dormatories are available. A cottage facing the stables on the second floor houses up to five. An apartment area in the old chateau houses three. The cottage's ground floor apartment features the students' dining and media room. Internet access is provided throughout.
Students coming with family and those, who do not wish to live in the dormatory, are advised to seek housing in one of the many and varied short term rentals in the region. Laundry facilities are available in the nearby towns St. Lo and Bayeux.
Are meals provided?
SomE offers full board to instructors and students. Served are breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and a light meal in the evening. Meals, made from fresh local produce, will be prepared to meet instructors' and students' nutritional needs.
