(Reservations only, a few days before you arrive in the area)
Do you want to have fun and share a real adventure with family or friends ?
Our open air Laser Games, or Bourdalat’s horseback archery are just what you need !
For all the Zorros, Robin Hoods, knights, Super Heros, in fact for all you adventurers here’s an exceptional emotion-packed activity which will be the highpoint of your holiday !
NEW: Laser Games (from July 2018 for horseback holidaymakers)
Take part in a real fun adventure !
Will you manage to reach all your targets or your enemies with your laser gun, like an intergalactic knight ? No need to be a great horseman, all the ponies and horses are well-trained and gentle.
You’ll play Laser Games on horseback, or on a pony, with an infra-red gun. This is an activity which combines the skills of manoeuvring your horse/pony and shooting accurately.
This is a new concept by Equidrive, a company based in the Var, who are real innovators in the world of riding. Bourdalat is the very first riding centre in the department to offer this fun activity.
The first game is a mix of a set course and archery. The horseback challenge is to get round the adventure course and capture Toupabos (targets) by shooting arrows at them.
The other type of game has similar rules, but riders have to aim at their adversaries’ weapons, with each participant having just three lives.
On the agenda
Brushing and saddling up your horse or pony, learning how to manoeuvre your mount and use the weapons, then rounds of laser games in our large grassy ring, or inside the school, followed finally by caring for and rewarding the horses/ponies. All with the assistance of the instructor.
Whether you’re a beginner or a confident rider, children or adults, everyone can play. A maximum of 8 persons per group. So come along and join one, or make up a group yourselves !
Archery : (plastic arrows with sucker tips)
Why not imagine yourself to be Robin Hood, elegantly astride his horse, brandishing his bow and arrows ? You can !
Combining archery and horseback riding – what a powerful symbol !
And if you hit the bull’s eye several times, you’ll be hooked on this new sport for the coming year !
We can teach you the basics of horseback archery, an ancient art which anyone can learn. Have fun discovering the new, totally safe version.
Feel like a little tournament ? Get into the swing of it, make up a team ! Learn at the same time to hold the bow, shoot arrows and handle your mount on a special shooting strip with targets. If you’re a family, take some ponies and horses and share a great moment of skill, of learning to work together with your horse, not to mention the excitement of the game ! We’ll lend you all you need to take part. Suitable for adults and children. An instructor will be there with you the whole time.
