Don’t miss: Horse

Don’t miss: Horse riding in the dunes Horse riding along the beach and in the dunes is just about as much fun as it’s possible to have. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never ridden a horse in your life, now’s the time to start. I went to the Centre Equestre on Avenue de la Dune aux loups and booked a one hour walk with a horse (pony rides are available for kids separately). With my two daughters who’d never been on a horse, we had an orientation session then set off for the beach. With the wind blowing in our hair, we followed the walk leader and got to see a different side to this town, wilder and less manicured than the posh centre, the waves lapped the beach around the horses feet, they clearly loved it. And so did we. With more than 400 events a year ranging from wine tasting and book fairs, concerts with international acts, to the Women’s Open Tennis and Enduropal race set up by Thierry Sabine who also founded the Paris- Dakkar race, season in France, and month long Christmas festivities – Le Touquet is a year-round superb weekend destination. And very moreish. You’ll always want to go back… Useful websites: Tourist Office: http://gb.letouquet.com/ Equestrian Centre: centre-equestreletouquet.ffe.com/ Racecourse Le Touquet: www.hippodromeletouquet.com/
