Who am I ?

My name is Floriane and I am a certified equestrian tourism guide (ATE).

I am originally from the Toulouse area and my passion for horses dates back to my childhood. I fell in love with the region on my first visit to Corbières.

I've been working in horseback riding for over 10 years.

My love for travel and adventure led me to Australia, where I worked for two years in an equestrian tourism centre at the foot of the Australian Alps, with high plains and magnificent landscapes.

I did multi-day treks accompanied by pack horses.

Once I returned to France, my Corsican roots led me back to the island, where I spent 6 years leading rides in the scrublands along steep paths, between the sea and mountains.

My taste for adventure led me back to the mainland for a new experience in the Corbières Mountains, as the director of Cheval Cathare.

I'm passionate about sharing my love of horses and riding. I will guide you with professionalism and a smile.

See you soon for more adventures!

Camille Carlier

" First ride with Cheval Cathare, and already itching to go back !

A wonderful week on the Chamois route with breathtaking scenery, accompanied by gentle, attentive and well-cared-for horses.

We took the time to appreciate the environment at the horses’ pace, either on foot or on horseback.

Twenty kilometers a day over a variety of landscapes, plus a few quick trots, and some great times shared with the group.

Floriane naturally shares her passion and devotion to her horses and this beautiful region.

Thanks also to Kiba for accompanying us and treating us well throughout the week."

 « What an incredible week !
Thanks to Michel, Marie and Floriane for their warm welcome, generosity and love for their horses !

Horses in whom we had complete trust, so generous and level-headed !

Last but not least, the scenery is breathtaking and incredibly diverse !

I'm heading home with a head full of wonderful memories, and I'm already looking forward to coming back. »

 « Superb experience as always !

Top-notch horses, you feel totally at ease with your mount.
Breathtaking scenery with a super-friendly, gentle and attentive guide (with both her horses and the riders).

Ideal for relaxing and enjoying the mountain air.

Thank you very much Floriane & Kiba for this trip »

" Route des Cols with Cheval Cathare :

A sublime ride that I 100% recommend !!!

I've had a wonderful, rejuvenating week in a great atmosphere.

Magnificent, varied scenery, well-organised itineraries and accommodation.

All you have to do is enjoy !
The horses are pampered, level-headed and brave.

I would like to thank Floriane and her beautiful horses for this wonderful adventure (and of course, Chaps).
I'll be back with pleasure."

« Two unforgettable rides, especially the one in the Pyrenees. Marie, Michel and Floriane are great, I learned, laughed and shared a lot.

They are always professional with good humour.

The horses are incredible, and I've never felt as confident as I did with their horses on the trails.

Just one word : thank you.

And see you soon, I hope.  

I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to have this wonderful experience»
