the riding ring

This is an indoor horse riding ring at château Chaumont (which I have yet to post any photos, but they will come).  While by Loire valley standards this château is not one of the biggest, it has the most elegant complex of horse stables I have ever seen.  That's exemplified by this circular indoor riding ring that has this fantastic domed cover to let in the sunlight while providing protection from the elements.  The railing is part of of a viewer's gallery that is above the training area.


  1. So you can watch the riding from overhead - nice.

  2. Yes, they spared no detail or luxury in the stables. Our house should be so nice.
