Horse-riding in the French style

The French town of Saumur, in the western Loire valley, has had an equestrian tradition for more than 500 years. In 1825, one of the world’s most prestigious horse-riding schools, the "Cadre Noir", was set up here. Today, 35 instructors teach 300 students every year, carrying on the tradition of French horse-riding, which was added to UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage in 2011. "You Are Here" takes you behind the scenes of the school.
