The Higher School of the Horse and Horse Riding (École supérieure du cheval et de l'équitation - ESCE) 2016 Catalogue of Training Courses Available For Foreign Students Welcome to... the Higher School of the Horse and Horse Riding! In France, horse riding is a hobby, a sport, a profession and an art. It is France's third national sport and the country has over one million horses. The diversity of uses (racing, sports, leisure, and work) and the quality of its production (the Selle Français breed is one of the best studbooks for sport horses, best endurance horses, etc.) make it one of the leading equine countries in the world. Placed under the joint supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry for Youth and Sports, the IFCE is a public institution in charge of supporting the development of the horse industry in France. It has a Higher School of the Horse and Horse Riding (École supérieure du cheval et de l'équitation - ESCE) located on two prestigious sites. The ESCE was built around the Cadre Noir of Saumur on the Saumur site in the Pays de Loire region. It provides initial and advanced training for French and foreign students, teachers and competition riders. The school benefits from the experience of Cadre Noir instructors who perpetuate equitation in the French tradition, which was incorporated into UNESCO s List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in cadrenoir.fr In Normandy, France's archetypal breeding region where many champions have been born, French and foreign students come for initial or vocational training at the Higher School of the Horse and Horse Riding on the estate of the Haras National du Pin.
