Hi there, We have two lovely mares for half loan at our polo club. One is 1m55, 15yrs, light bay, argentine and one is 10yrs, 1m58 dark bay, thoroughbred. They are both sweet natured but not for novices. They need calm confident riders.  Their owner rides them Saturday and Sunday so they are mostly available during the week. It's possible to take riding lessons with them as there are weekly 'normal' riding lessons as well as polo. There is plenty of off-road hacking and a lovely arena for dressage. It is also possible to take polo lessons with them but this will need to be discussed in more detail.  The mares do not have to be taken together, if you want to half-loan one only this is fine. It may suit two horsey friends or mother and daughter looking to ride together.  This is a paid half-loan/demi-pension. The owner is looking for someone who would like a nice horse to ride on a regular basis, somewhere with excellent facilities, who will contribute financially to their upkeep, approx €150 per month per horse. For more information please contact me at stcannatpolo@gmail.com.

  Calling confident riders who live in the area- at least for a while . .This is a year-round Perminant possibility. If you are good riders , one or two - we have two happy forward going horses we lend to help excercise them in the surrounding countryside. If one person you would team up with current rider- French spoken but English owners. You will need a car, and this is not for a one off ride experiance- regular riders please.. although not neccesarily every week , and flexible days and times. Not for beginers or children- independent adventurous/ confident riders. If at all interested send me a mail and I send you the folder explaining all.. where.. when.. etc. Saffron Sea

I wondered if any Americans or other lovers of the sport are in the Draguignan region? There's a team called les Dragons Noirs who train on the new pitch in Flayosc at 3 levels, cadets, juniors and seniors. The team, all French but now with an American coach, is about to start its season if you or your children are interested.

HI  we are thinking of moving to the area and would like to set up a Zorb ball business.( the 2 mtr inflatable ballls that you can walk on water in or at least try to) They are great fun and really good excersise. We are looking for a permanent venue to put a pool about 10X8 metres like a giant paddling pool we would obviosly need access to water and a good footfall.or about 10 metres of beach front we would expect to pay a concession fee for the privelage.

Hiya. Moving to Hyeres in a few weeks and wondered if anyone knows of a good pilates class inthe area. My French is minimal so an English speaking tutor a bonus, but who knows if I will be so lucky. If all in French at least I can just copy what everyone else is doing. Recomendations gratefully received.  Thanks in advance. Floss

I am taking a short break soon  and shall be spending a week or so near to Carpentras. I'd like to do a spot of freshwater fishing, preferably a lake rather than a river. Can anyone recommend any carp/freshwater lakes in that general area?

Hello everyone, Just a little update on our cricketing activities in Saint Cannat. We held our first cricket taster session just over two months ago with just over 50 participants of all ages. We were delighted with the good turnout and the fun family atmosphere. We have since continued practice sessions every other week and welcome new players, both experienced and complete beginners alike. Do contact us if you're interested in coming along to play or simply spectate! Please also take a look at some of our photos on Polo Club de Saint Cannat's facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Polo-Club-de-Saint-Cannat/167091256767284?ref_type=bookmark For more information on training times and directions please contact Lizzie Parker at stcannatpolo@gmail.com
